Fontainebleau Hot-Air Balloon Ride

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your hot-air balloon experience takes place in Fontainebleau, a town about 45 minutes outside of Paris, home to the Château de Fontainebleau.

    You'll start with balloon preparation and inflation, watching as it rises into the air. Then hop aboard the basket and take off on your 1-hour flight, admire views of town, the castle, and the forest. When you land, enjoy a glass of Champagne for the traditional toast des aéronautes, and then return by vehicle to the starting point.

    Please note: When booking, please specify if you prefer the morning or evening tour, or you may contact the local operator after booking.
