  • Helena is fantastic! we did a private flight and highly recommend no better way to see the Algarve Countryside  more »
  • I would do this again in a heartbeat. Beautiful sunrise, quiet but for the dogs barking, and you can hardly believe you're floating thousands of feet up. We could see the mountains around Sines on.....  more »

  • Excellent. Great people. Everyone is always welcome. Great runway and Malcolm is a great instructor. Thanks again.
  • One of the most fabulous experiences of my life!
  • Riding a balloon once in a lifetime, Was one of my wife Sabine's life dreams. On this subject, it got mulky again and again. We always plan stays in Lagos at regular intervals, but have never noticed that these dreams of life will be fulfilled in this place. I only now discovered Algarve Balloons on the internet and didn't know if I should tell Sabine. I was not comfortable with that thought. Eventually I jumped over my shadow and we inquired about a ride in the balloon. Then on September 19, the time had come. The meeting point was at 6.30am of the Aerodromo de Lagos. It was still pitch dark and when I saw the little "basket" of the balloon, the heart slipped down my pants and I told Sabine she had to fulfill her lifelong dream on her own. Then came Helena, the pilot, and greeted us. When I told her about my anxiety, she spoke calmly to me. She made me understand she would land immediately if I wasn't to feel comfortable. That helped me. After a short drive into the hinterland, we were able to help fill the balloon with air by keeping the lower opening open. When he was filled and had set up the basket, the big moment came. "Get in ..." We climbed into the basket and got a stool to sit on. Then it went up very slowly. Helena asked me again and again how I was doing. I haven't been scared at all since getting in. It went higher and higher ... The view was terrific. We hovered higher and higher in the rising sun and a never heard silence surrounded us. We heard some dogs barking from below and could admire the Serra de Monchique from above. When Helena said that we were now 3,000 meters high, you could look up to Aljezur. It was just indescribable. Our journey went for just over an hour. Helena showed us some destinations from above, some of which we should visit. On the sinking flight we flew over a villa district. People below stopped their cars, took pictures of us and waved at us. Eventually we landed in the middle of the "Pampa" and the dream was over. Not quite....... To our surprise, there was a champagne breakfast in the "Pampa" with various sausages and cheeses, ham and fresh fruit. Verdict: Anything that was a dream was REALLY!!!! A big thank you to the crew who had all the work with the balloon. And "muito, muito Obrrigado" HELENA!!! Thank you for being so reassuring and taking away my fear. Without you, we would never have experienced something so much "beautiful" together. Many greetings from Sabine & Frank

  • Helena is really great! She puts people at ease, reassures them by explaining that the goal to fly in a balloon is to have fun and not to be afraid. Here at 6 a.m. we arrive on site and already she has the smile. She is caring for us. A group of 6 people for whom it is the baptism of the air as well. She is an experienced and serious driver. A beautiful experience with champagne and spades picnic and graduation of the first flight. Thank you.
