Balloon Flights

Known around the world for the International Balloon Festival, Château-d’Oex is the ideal spot to take your first flight in a hot air balloon. SkyEvent SA organises flights every day of the year (mornings), leaving from the take-off ground at the entrance to the village. Ideal for individuals, groups, families and friends, as long as weather conditions allow. The magic starts when you climb into the basket. Once the balloon is inflated it rises into the sky, light as a feather, up to an altitude between 2500 and 3500 metres.

Majestic views will begin to unfold before you after just a few minutes: enjoy a 360 degree view of the valley and the surrounding peaks. Suspended in the air in absolute tranquillity, you can admire a panorama of the Alps: from Mont-Blanc to the Eiger, from the Grand-Combin to the Matterhorn and the Jura, not forgetting the regions of Lake Geneva and Fribourg. At the end of the adventure you will receive a flight certificate and share a drink of friendship, after the balloon has landed and been packed away. Evening flights are available throughout the summer in the Gruyere / Fribourg region, over-flying the Swiss plateau.
Group flights in one or more balloons can also be organised on request.
