Zagorje ballooning experience

Your adventure of discovery starts at an airfield just outside the City of Zagreb. There you will join a team of some of the most experienced balloonists in Europe and be wholeheartedly welcomed to the magical world of hot air balloons. You’ll be in safe hands as you take on a journey quite like no other!

A brief and fun pre-flight briefing will introduce you to the basics of hot air ballooning. You will learn what makes the balloons fly, what is the role of the pilot and the ground crew, and how to set up a balloon. Then, under the watchful eye of the trained Balloon club Zagreb pilot and crew, you will get to participate in preparing your own balloon for the flight. When the balloon is ready for takeoff, the pilot will call you to enter the basket, and it is time to go flying.

Gently hovering through the sky, take in fantastic views of the magical hills of the Zagorje region, dotted with historic castles, vineyards, and traditional villages. Snap some magnificent panoramas of Medvednica nature park as you sail effortlessly above this beautiful green countryside enjoying the contrast between its gently rolling hills and the splendid Slovenian Alps in the background.

After an hour’s flight, what better way to be welcomed back to the ground than with a glass of sparkling wine and traditional Zagorje breakfast or brunch. You’ll even receive a personalized balloon-flight
