  • You and your partner meet at the balloon take-off site early in the morning. The ballooning crew welcomes you and you assist in preparing the balloon for flight. The sun is just beginning to rise and the sky is painting a beautiful picture. You lift off and the city fades as you fly up high. The air is chilly but the stunning view keeps you both warmed up.
  • Once reached the desired altitude, the world takes on a tranquil quality. You indulge in a luxury breakfast that’s been prepared for you in the basket. You keep an eye out for the city's landmarks and enjoy the sight of the beautiful canals and the historic cityscape. Surrounded by the calm sky and embraced by the morning sunshine, you both experience a peace not regularly found in the hustle of daily life.
  • As the flight comes to an end, you descend slowly, passing through the clouds, getting your last glimpses of the city from above. The balloon lands safely and you toast champagne to celebrate the successful flight. This untraditional way of experiencing Amsterdam leaves unforgettable memories and gives a new perspective on the city of Amsterdam

Preparation steps:

  • Book the private balloon flight at least two weeks in advance to make sure you get your desired date. Make sure to check the weather forecast for the day of the flight, as adverse weather conditions might lead to cancellations. Dress in layers, as it might be cooler in the morning, but it can get warmer when the sun is up.
  • Prepare a small bag with essentials like sunglasses, hats, and a camera, to capture the moment. Also, consider seasickness medication if either of you tends to get motion sickness. Make sure your phone is fully charged – you’ll want to take plenty of photos.
  • Make it even more surprising by not revealing the detailed plan to your partner. Instead, tell them you’re taking a trip somewhere and the details will be revealed when you reach the destination

Some tips:

  • Keep an element of surprise until you reach the take-off site for the hot air balloon. It will make the date ever more memorable. While sailing in the sky, don’t forget to make a toast to your love journey together.
  • If your partner is scared of heights, this might not be the best idea. However, if they're up for a little adventure, this could be a great way to make memories together.
  • Lastly, remember to be present. It can be tempting to spend the trip looking through your camera lens, but remember to put the camera down occasionally to fully absorb the experience and appreciate the amazing views of Amsterdam hand in hand
