Add to favorites
  • You begin your date with a drive to the hot air balloon site in the outskirts of Kiev, where you and your partner will get a safety briefing before your flight. As you gently lift off, the world shrinks away and you're left floating in the calm expanse of the sky.
  • As the balloon ascends, the magnificent cityscape of Kiev opens up beneath you, unraveling a tapestry of landmarks and greenery. Share this surreal experience with your partner, spot significant landmarks, and capture stunning photos.
  • As dusk descends, the city lights start flickering, adding a magical glow to your excursion. After an hour or so in the air, your date ends with a soft landing and a toast to celebrate your aerial adventure.

Preparation steps:

  • Choose a day with favorable weather and confirm your booking with the balloon operator in advance. Wear comfortable clothing suitable for the weather conditions, bearing in mind that it may be cooler at altitude. Ensure your camera or smartphone is fully charged to capture extraordinary panorama of Kiev.
  • Ensure you and your partner are free and relaxed for the day. The hot air balloon flight usually takes about an hour but factor in extra time for safety instructions and preparation before take-off and celebration after landing. Bring along a nice bottle of champagne to make the post-landing celebration even more special.
  • While the experience itself is safe and conducted by trained professionals, it can be a bit intimidating for those who have a fear of heights. If this is the case with your partner, make sure you reassure and comfort them throughout the experience.

Some tips:

  • Enjoy the ride in silence, marveling at the panorama beneath and rediscover the joy of a quiet, shared experience. You are allowed to talk of course, but the less you do, the more you will take in.
  • Bring along your favorite champagne or drink to toast after the flight. It's a great way to wind down and you can share your feelings about the flight with your partner.
  • Hot air ballooning is subject to weather conditions. If conditions are not suitable for flying, operators usually provide an opportunity to reschedule your flight. Remember that your safety and enjoyment are the foremost concerns.
