What better way is there to escape from the city and enjoy the stunning scenery of Terelj National Park than from a hot air balloon?

Come and join us on this new activity safely operated under UK regulations flying with experienced commercial pilots in our bespoke 2-3 passenger balloon!

Your morning will start early as you arrive to one of our designated launch sites in the National Park. Enjoy some warming coffee or tea before your pilot will give you a safety briefing. You will then be able to get some hands on experience in helping with the setting up of the balloon before taking to the skies.

As you gently lift off the ground you will see this beautiful landscape unfold below you: bizarre rock formations, cliffs, streams of water and green pasture land where yaks and horses graze or local farmers herd their cattle. Climbing high, you can enjoy the 360 panoramic view of the entire region. Your pilot will skilfully manoeuvre the balloon before eventually drifting back to earth where our dedicated crew will greet you.

We celebrate our flight in true aeronautical fashion with sparkling wine and you will receive a personally-signed flight certificate from your pilot before our team takes you back to your hotel.
