Hot Air Ballooning

Once the wicker basket leaves the ground you are reminded that you are suspended hundreds of metres above the ground! The views are stunning, and as you glide over the forests you may see deer and other animals that are normally hidden from view. The pilot controls the height but the wind determines which direction you take, so the flight can take anything from 5mins for a ‘Maiden Flight’ to one or two hours, depending on when a suitable landing site comes into view. Extended flight lasting up to 40 minutes.

Helicopter Trips

Relax and enjoy the stunning views as you fly over the snow-capped mountains, glaciers and alpine forests. Daily helicopter flights are available in all resorts (weather permitting) with a number of local flight companies or some mountain guide companies. Transport can be provided and the cost is dependent on participant numbers. Please ask our Active Rep for more info on arrival.

Over 80 Activities To Try!

Our Holidays come with more than enough free activities for your week included in our ‘Free Active Packs’ (which are worth up to £355).
