Fairytale castles, old churches and evocative medieval villages with tall towers are just some of the spectacular things you can see in the Monferrato...
Take to the skies and see a stunning aerial view of the Barolo area. You would have the chance to see the Langhe hills and all the best panoramas.
Whether you are a passenger in a hot-air balloon, or in a helicopter, lying over the territory would give you the chance to see breathtaking landscapes. From above you can admire how the Langhe widens and are scattered of vineyards as far as the eye can see. Then fly over the prestigious castles of the Langhe and its small medieval villages!
If you’ll decide for the hot-air balloon option you’ll leave from the artistic Commune of Barolo surrounded by the suggestive Langhe. A magnificent territory to visit by land that only by sky can be entirely admired, flying above vineyards, towers and castles.
“In a hot-air balloon you have the impression of floating lighter than the air enjoying a 360 ° panorama as from a terrace.”
Silence is interrupted only by the blow of the burner that heats the balloon: you can fly slowly, low ground, passing through trees, fields and small inhabited centers or get up a few thousand meters without almost realizing it.
No other aircraft offers you this versatility. When you fly in a hot-air balloon, you know the take-off point but you don’t know what the precise landing point will be.
These are the philosophy and the principle of flying with the “balloon”: flying for the sake of flying without a predefined goal, following the winds.
In addition the flight includes the brunch in a typical Piola with the tasting of local products, video shooting, and certificate of the flight. We’ll send you the video of your flight just after few days from the experience!
If you’ll choose the helicopter experience, you would be able to fly over the Langhe, camera in hand, to observe the splendid hills, the breathtaking landscapes and the most beautiful villages, admiring the colors of this territory and draws unforgettable panoramas that will make you live a unique emotion to remember for the whole life! The flight would last for about 30 minutes. But if you want a longer flight you can decide for the experience: “From the Alps to the sea”. Departing from Cuneo you will fly over the Maritime Alps and its breathtaking landscapes. Crossing the Alps you will reach the Ligurian coast, flying over Alassio and the coast, passing through the Gallinara island. The flight would last for about 1.30hr.
And if you still want a more adrenalinic activity, no worries you can do the training: “Pilot for a day”. You would experience the thrill of flying and holding the controls of a helicopter, under the supervision of an instructor. After the introductory briefing on the principles of flight, you will be able to take off: the helicopter is equipped with dual controls, all you’ll have to do will be to take a seat next to the instructor. It will make you live a unique emotion to remember for the whole life!
