Hot air balloon and paragliding in Dordogne 13 March 2020

Hot air balloon ride in the Périgord

Where to go hot air ballooning?

It is above the magnificent Dordogne valley that you will live this incredible experience.

Being more at ease in the water and on land than in the air, I will not share my experience with you here. However, I can share with you the very enthusiastic feedback and comments of the guests of the house who have embarked on this unique experience.

At sunrise or sunset, above the Dordogne valley, they flew over these magnificent landscapes and historical monuments; the village of La Roque Gageac, the fortress of Beynac, the castle of Castlenaud la Chapelle, the castle of Milandes, as close as possible to the river or several hundred meters away at the most beautiful hours of the day when the light is soft, grazing, exceptional.

They ALL came back with stars in their eyes and enchanted by this unforgettable experience.


You will find here several service providers with different formulas (exclusive gondolas, flights for 6 people, dinner on board, gondola accessible to people with reduced mobility...). Consult their sites to find the one that will take you into the air.

Where to paraglide?

It is in the Vézère valley, or in the Dordogne valley in the Lot department near Souillac that you will be invited to glide.

Once you arrive on the hill for take-off with your instructor, you will be equipped, then receive training and safety instructions before taking off down the slope, hooked up to your instructor.

At your request, you can be equipped with a Go Pro camera so that you don’t miss any of this experience and bring those memories back to land.

Several types of flights are offered, from discovery flights, first flights, longer pleasure flights or sport flights for the more adventurous.

Paragliding is accessible to children from 7 years old.
