Hot air balloon trips

The high season for hot air balloon rides is between Easter and the end of October.

Ballooning can only be done in calm weather and people set out shortly before sunset or shortly after sunrise. A trip lasts for around an hour and a maximum of 3 to 4 passengers are allowed on board.

During the trip, the pilot provides you with a more extensive explanation of things that you would never have seen from ground floor level.

At the Kelchterhoef ballooning field in summer balloons take off every day and you can enjoy the colourful spectacle during a family picnic or from a terrace.
