Quebec: Hot Air Ballooning
The crown jewel of French Canada
Hot air ballooning in Quebec is one of the most romantic ways to see this beautiful city and the magical sceneries of the St. Lawrence River. Flights are available for beginners as well as more experienced travellers. Visitors in Montreal can go to nearby Verdun to board. Children are welcome and balloons can accommodate between 4-6 passengers. Simply dress to suit the season, as it is not cold in the balloon's basket.
A four meters flame just above you keeps you warm during the flight, highlights of ballooning in Quebec include special night flights and winter flights. Good footwear is sometimes necessary. Travellers can book a hot air balloon ride in Quebec City and enjoy a sunset or sunrise flight. Highlights include Quebec City, the St. Lawrence River, the Ile d'Orleans and the Laurentian Mountains. In early September
one of the most popular events in Eastern Canada, is the Gatineau Hot Air Balloon Festival featuring hot air balloons and shows.
