Pollution-free activities - what a breath of fresh air! So, take to the skies in a hot air balloon and fly over Fontainebleau and its chateaux! Enjoy a drink with the balloonist on arrival to toast your journey and hope a gentle landing…


France seen from the sky



So, how do you fancy viewing France from above for an hour and a half? Head to Fontainebleau, the France dotted with chateaux which inspired the Impressionists. Ancient forests, hunting grounds of the kings of France, riverbanks and romantic little villages...head off with your camera in hand to take some of the most beautiful images of France as seen from above.

Treat yourself to a little bit of sky



With two flights per day (at dawn and dusk), you can admire this listed heritage site in complete tranquillity. A trip rich in history and art and an opportunity to enjoy the verdant French countryside. Once on board, sit back and enjoy the sights dating from finest centuries in the history of France. And to finish off your adventure, let yourself be tempted by the breakfast in the countryside or the traditional aperitif/glass of champagne, depending on the time. 




1 hr flight (3 hrs in total, with preparation and inflating the balloon): between €155-200. 
Promotions on e-tickets.

Brigitte, 39 MOTHER

Mother, bohemian and Parisian, I love Paris' cosmopolitan side and warmth. Exhibitions, walks, outings with the children...I'll take you on a discovery of the most welcoming places in Paris. My little extra: with my love of food as my compass, I always set course for the best lemon tarts in the city.
