Our VIP tour of Segovia starts with a hot air balloon ride in Segovia and all the picturesque landscapes surrounding it. You will have this magical experience of visiting the city and seeing it through another point of view, enjoying the local cuisine in the best traditional inn and discovering one of the most historical and scenic areas in Spain.
An hour before the sun rises, we will fetch you at your hotel in Madrid and depart for Segovia. The hot air balloon ride will commence just before sunrise, for the most perfect experience in the sky and due to the temperature of the air.
Upon arrival, you will be able to see the crew inflating the hot air balloon, a hypnotic process that should definitely not be missed. Once you slowly climb higher and higher to the clouds, you will enjoy the gentle, light stream of colors of dawn that gloriously bathes the Alcazar of Segovia, and being able to enjoy the beauty of this castle from another point of view is simply breathtaking. The silence and distance found within the clouds will allow you to admire this incredible fortress that could possibly be one of the most beautiful in the world.
This unique hot air balloon ride will be above the sky for one hour, and if there is luck with the direction of wind, then flying over the alcazar will be an unforgettable possibility.
