Evening Hovering with Chances of Northern Lights

AVAILABLE BY REQUEST ONLY: The "hovering experience" is an exciting activity that involves tying the balloon to the ground at a height of roughly 40 metres, as flying during the night can be dangerous. This incredible adventure typically lasts around 15 minutes and includes delicious snacks, as well as a captivating talk about the Northern Lights and ballooning in the northern regions. The talk can be enjoyed in front of a warm fireplace before or after the flight, adding to the cozy atmosphere. Additionally, guests will have the chance to assist in launching and packing the balloon, providing an immersive experience.

Duration: 1 to 1.5 hours. For an even more exclusive and memorable experience, guests can reserve all six seats, and if the weather permits, we will double the time in the air.
