Winter flights, Ballooning in winter is a wonderful experienc., the first bonus is that we don’t have to start so early in the morning, because the air is cold and stable, there is no thermal activity.
Yes, it is cold on the ground, but the burners of the hot-air balloon are good heaters! In winter the colours and visibility in Tuscany are often exceptional, with clear views to the Apenine ranges covered in snow.. What I love most is looking right into the forest, observe life in the woods through the bare trees and see the wild boar running for cover..
Flying all year round through every season is a bit like looking down onto a calendar. See when the farmers plant the vegetable garden, when it is time to start pruning the olive trees, time for plowing, the grapes are ripe and, oh yes, the smell of Spring..
