Hot Air Balloons 
in Gstaad

Rising to altitudes of up to 4,000 metres, get ready for a breathtaking hot air balloon ride over Gstaad. Survey the Saanenland valleys, and watch the vistas stretch out in every direction in front of you. Picture snow-covered mountains, enchanting wildlife and frozen lakes all seen from a birds-eye view.

Tour the canton of Bern and further afield, surveying the Bernese Oberland, Bern-Mittelland, Seeland and the Bernese Jura. Take in the neighbouring resorts of Rougemont or Château-d’Oex, known for its International Balloon Festival, or perhaps descend in Gruyère or Emmental. You are guaranteed to return to Ultima Gstaad with memories that will last a lifetime.
