Sharing the dream
of a balloon ride

After having tasted the magic of a balloon ride, I dreamed that one day, I would let others savour the intoxicating sensation that overcomes us when we let ourselves be rocked by the winds, literally floating in the air, skirting the landscape that passes before our eyes.

In 1994, I realized this dream. After buying my first hot air balloon and taking my pilot course, I founded Balad'Air, which has since shared this unique experience with thousands of people.

Today, I invite you to come and share this dream with us.

Marc Bégin, pilot


  • We were nervous about being 5000 feet in the air in a wicker basket, but it was amazing! Smoothest flight we've ever been on!

    Our red balloon gondola can be configured with a bench (upon request only). Ideal for people with reduced mobility.
