A memorable experience towards new horizons!

For 40 years now, massive hot air balloon flights have colored the sky of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu every summer during the festival. Even for the regulars, a balloon flight remains an unforgettable experience. Each flight is a new adventure, as the balloon is guided by the air currents. Being on board the basket and rising quietly into the sky is a unique moment. To be part of it, you can book a flight now for one of the 18 available moments. It is possible to book a flight for the morning or evening, depending on the view you wish to have.
