With this hot air balloon ride over Cusco we will enjoy the best views of the city, as well as contemplate the enormous complex of the Inca fortress of Sacsayhuaman.


  • Hot air balloon expeditions over the Andean landscapes of Cusco.
  • Ballooning is a spectacular experience
  • The best time to take a hot air balloon ride is in the early morning hours.


Itinerary We will pick you up at your hotel in Cusco at 5:30 a.m. and we will set off to the Sacsayhuaman site, the place where an exciting balloon ride will take place. First, we will see the inflation process of the ship and observe how the hot air is rising and inflating the balloon. Then we will proceed to climb into the basket to ascend to 100 meters high for an estimated time of 20 minutes. We will be hooked at all times to giant ropes nailed to the ground. We will see the Andean city of Cusco and the Sacsayhuaman fortress, one of the greatest architectural works of the Incas. Apart from serving as a defense at the time of the Spanish conquest, it is believed that it was a place of worship to the Sun God. We will also have a bird's eye view of the Pukamuqu mountain and part of the Andes mountain range. A unique image that will remain engraved on your retinas. When we get off the airship, we will toast with a glass of champagne and have a picnic breakfast to replenish our energy. Did you know that the toast after the flight is a tradition? Finally, we will take you to your hotel in Cusco, where you are scheduled to arrive at 10:30 am. Important You must take into account that this activity is not a balloon ride, it is an ascent in a balloon hooked with ropes to the ground.
