Departure Hours | Schedule

The vast majority of flights in Portugal are performed at dawn, in the best weather conditions. However, it is also possible to fly in the late afternoon. You can comprehend the beauty of watching the sunrise or sunset onboard a hot air balloon with your eyes alone.

In the table below, you may get an idea of the departure schedule set by the uniform daylight period. Sunrise is a reference for morning balloon journey departures, and about two hours before sunset for evening flights. But don’t worry because the hours will be combined in an efficient manner.


The flights last 90 minutes and the return is carried out usually about 3 to 5 hours after the launch.


Warning
Weather conditions could result in the pilot to not meeting the specified hours or even cancelling the flight. The location of the balloon journey can also be changed if we cannot guarantee you a full journey due to unfavorable winds (evening flights, only carried out in Portugal from November until late March/April).
