Get up early to start your private hot-air balloon experience with a hotel pickup from St Petersburg, and then travel for about 40 minutes by private air-conditioned vehicle out of the city centre toward the place of one of the Russian Royal Residences - Pushkin town. 

Enjoy a 1-hour flight with a professional pilot who has at least 1000 flight hours. Your guide will help you with the translation just for your convenience to make you sure you understand all of the safety information. 

As you float through the sky, enjoy the feeling of peace and tranquility as you experience unobstructed 360-degree views of the St Petersburg city region. Take a cup of hot coffee and relax as you experience the unique sky atmosphere. 

Flight duration is approximately 1-hour and the exact route is dictated by wind patterns. This journey also suits people who are a little bit afraid of heights as you will rise to the height of 100-300 meters only. However this flight guarantees breathtaking views of the suburbs in the second capital of Russia - Pushkin and Pavlovsk with all its' gardens, palaces and beautiful landscapes, created for the Russian tsars by European Masters! Get your camera ready to make incredible photos! 

Once you are back on the ground, the team will deflate and pack up the balloon. Helping to pack the balloon away afterwards is also great fun! Then the vehicle will take you to the meeting point where you'll celebrate your flight with a glass of wine and a flight certificate, a valuable reminder of the once-in-a-lifetime experience you have just enjoyed.

Finally you will return to your hotel with your professional driver to have some rest after the emotions of your once-in-a-lifetime-experience.
