Hot Air Balloon Tour at Thessaloniki

Experience Thessaloniki in a way you never dreamed of - from a hot air balloon! Don’t miss out on this unique chance to have an adventure that you will remember forever! 

Thessaloniki is a city that you can experience in many different ways, you can sail around it, ride on the tour bus, or wander around it; either way the city is gorgeous no matter from which perspective you see it. However, we offer you a unique way to admire our favourite city - from a hot air balloon. Seeing beautiful Thessaloniki from this perspective is truly something words fail to describe. The view of Ano Poli’s fortress standing tall on the hill, or the majestic White Tower or the picturesque Ladadika is a view that will take your breath away. This sounds like something you dreamt about? Hop on this hot air balloon with GrekAddict and let us make your dreams come true!

Our adventure will start early in the morning because this is when the flying conditions are optimal for hot air balloons. Trust us, the whole experience is worth waking up early in the morning! The flight crew will pick you up from your hotel and bring you to the takeoff location. Here, the balloon will be set up for inflation. Once everything is set, it is time to head up in the skies. The hot air allows the balloon to slowly rise so you will have plenty of time to enjoy the view during takeoff. Once you are up in the air you will feel relaxed while admiring the breathtaking view of Thessaloniki in silence. Afterwards, it is time to start slowly descending on the firm ground. When we finish our descent, the pilot will make a toast with champagne to mark this incredible experience. There are also flight certificates and small souvenirs waiting for you. If you ask us, this tour above Thessaloniki can’t get any better!

Pick up from your hotel at 5:30 am

Early in the morning the flight crew will pick you up from your hotel and take you to the takeoff site where the balloon is waiting for you.

Landing at 7:30 am

At 7:30 am it is time to land on the firm ground. Once you land the pilot will make a traditional toast with champagne to complete the overall adventure.
