About Wiegers Ballonvaarten
We would like to invite you to join us on a magnificent balloon ride above this beautiful country. The landscape of the center of The Netherlands is very diverse with a wide range of natural beauty and perfect for an unforgettable adventure. In the wicker basket you experience the daily activities in and around the villages and cities from a unique perspective. You can enjoy the calm and wide open spaces of heather fields and dense forests. There is a chance we might see deer at one of the forest’s edges or rivers. You will see the country like never before. Our balloon rides above the center of The Netherlands are planned daily. Depending on the weather, we decide to take off or not. Thermal conditions are a big issue for balloon rides. This is why we take off shortly after sunrise or about two hours before sunset. We welcome you at the start field where the pilot will explain everything about the ride you are about to experience. The complete program takes about three hours, of which we spend an hour in the sky. After the landing we share a toast to this unforgettable experience and take a moment to share our thoughts on the flight above this beautiful piece of the country. A beautiful memory which you can experience again and again every time you close your eyes!

We were the only 2 ppl speaking English so I had some obvious apprehensions ....but I needn’t have because Niels our pilot was pretty professional and explained to us in English and in Dutch to everyone else... The flight itself was as safe as could be...at no point do you feel any fear or anxiety well at least not if u already have it :) We were picked up from the train station to the flight point and later dropped off again at the station...how convenient is that :) ....not only that Niels was kind enough to explain which train we had to take and at which platform , how long etc ...so all in all we never felt like tourists or in other words isolated... I would definitely recommend this company which is great overall and also cheaper than similar options in Turkey or Florence .

About two weeks ago, we took a balloon flight out of Amersfoort. It was our first balloon ride and it was a truly wonderful experience. We loved every minute of it! The ride was really smooth and I was happy to not feel scared or motion sick. The staff were super organized and professional and we felt totally safe. Their email correspondence leading up to the flight was also great. The champagne toast at the landing site was a very nice way to end the experience. Thank you, Niels and crew!
