Explore Chateau Konopiste, the last residence of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, from a birds' perspective, spot wild animals and wave at locals below.

The service starts with a pick-up at your hotel or close by. The exact take off location depends on current weather conditions but they are all spectacular. Travel to the launch site and enjoy an hour of soft floating.

The pilot will guide you through the landscapes and answer all the questions you may have and take as many pictures of you as possible. In accordance with the history, every balloon flight must be celebrated with champagne and light refreshment. After a toast, you will receive the aeronaut’s certificate. After the flight, you will be transported back to your hotel.

    Welcome to the launch site!
    Your pilot and his team are getting your balloon ready. Did you know it only takes around 20 minutes to get the entire balloon ready to fly?!

    Once you arrive, you are welcome to bite on prepared snacks, have water, or sip on a cold beer / coffee. At this time, your pilot gives you instructions for boarding, the flight itself, and landing. He also checks on your current overall condition to make sure everyone is ready for the flight. He has the responsibility over you - he has the last word! Make sure to read our pre-flight instructions so that you are ready!

    BALLOON FLIGHT
    After the briefing by your pilot, our team starts the balloon inflation process. It takes around 10 minutes to stand the balloon up. You are welcome to watch, take pictures and enjoy thee scenery.

    Once the balloons are up, you will be invited to jump on board.

    In the sky we go! The pilot ignites the burners and lifts the balloon off the ground. Hot-air ballooning belongs to the most peaceful and romantic activities one could ever experience. Once airborne you'll be amazed by the silence and infinite space around you. The flight level ranges from the tree-tops all the way up to 5 000 feet above ground. Spot wild animals, wave at locals and take millions of pictures!

    Landing time
    After about 1 hour the pilot searches for the best place to land. You will be instructed to get into a "landing position" and to await further instructions.

    The landing is usually soft as if you landed into a blanket. However, it also very much depends on the wind speed. If the wind is stronger, you might experience a little bump, or in rare cases, a short drag-landing. All of the landings are safe, the more wind we have the more fun our passengers actually have at the landing. So no worries!

    Champagne toast & Aviators' certificates
    Once landed, your pilot will pull out a bottle of wine, glasses and aviators' certificates. He is also going to tell you a bit about the history of ballooning and why we do toast. You are then welcome to take more pics, watch our team pack the balloon and get ready for the way back.

    Transfer back to Prague
    Time to go. Our drivers will take you back to your hotel, in the opposite order they picked everybody up.

    Pictures and memories
    Balloon is spectacular! We are aware of that and so are our pilots. During the flight your pilot takes a few pictures and lets you use the camera to take some for, and of, yourself. He will then download them and send them out to the passengers.
