Will it be cold?
The air temperature is cooler at higher elevations, and our balloons fly up to 1000 meters above the ground. However, most passengers agree that the flight is not too cold.

A light jacket and perhaps a scarf or hat are enough to stay warm in the fall and spring, while wintertime may require thick socks and more layers to be comfortable.

How does the hot air balloon fly?
Hot air is lighter and less dense than cold air, so when hot propane gas is used to heat the air inside the balloon to about 100 degrees Celcius, the lighter air lifts the balloon off the ground. To come down, the hot air is either cooled or released from the balloon via air vents. Balloons go wherever the wind takes them, but pilots can lower or raise the balloons using hot and cool air to catch different wind currents
