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.
