Balloonride in Extremadura and Castile La Mancha
Balloon flights in Extremadura
Extremadura is a region in the southwest of Spain with a very low density of population. There are just 2 bigger cities in this province – Badajoz and Caceres. Nevertheless, Extremadura covers 8 % of the spanish ground. That means that the province is actually bigger than Holland, Belgium or Denmark. The north of Extremadura is very mountainous. The highest peak in the northerly Sierra de Gredos reaches 2.450m. A little more south you find the beautiful valley Jerte (valle de jerte ), which is completely covered with cherry trees. In spring the cherries are getting harvested. The whole valley is white at that time – something you have to see with a balloon ride Extremadura.
A bit further south two mayor rivers cross the province Extremadura – the Tajo and the Guadiana. The bigger one, the Tajo finally leads into the atlantic at Lisbon.

Balloon Rides in the Alto Tajo
The Alto Tajo is a nature park between Cuenca and Teruel and for us one of the most beautiful and spectacular regions of Spain.
Flat top mountains, deep valleys, canyons and meanders cut through the landscape. You can find a lot of rivers, waterfalls and grotesque rock formations. The area is already quite impressive seen by food or bicycle , but the whole beauty of it can just be evaluated with a balloon ride.
