What if I need to cancel my balloon flight?

What happens if the weather is unsuitable and the flight is cancelled?

For your safety, all hot air balloon rides with us are weather permitting. In case of weather cancellation by Balloon Adventures Italy we shall book you in for another convenient time or you can receive a full refund if you wish.

Where does the balloon land?

The balloon flies with the wind, which determines direction and distance, so the flight paths differ from flight to flight.

Where does the balloon take off from?

Our take-off site is 12km from Assisi, on the opposite side of the valley. Our meeting point is at the Cantina Dionigi winery.  See this page to get directions.

Where and at what time do we meet?

The meeting place is Cantina Dionigi (get directions here). The meeting time could be as early as 6:30am in June or as late as 7:30am in September.

What should I wear?

Wear comfortable sporty clothing. It is advisable to carry a light jacket or cardigan. As you will have to climb in and out of the basket, wearing a skirt or a long dress can get in the way. A sun hat or cap is also a good idea. Avoid wearing high heels and flip-flops. Trainers are ideal.
