Plan introduction(Hot Air Balloon Free-flight Tour)


This hot air balloon tour is a special tour only available during the winter of Hokkaido! Furano is probably the only place in Japan where you can enjoy free flight hot air balloon rides in the vast nature.


An experienced pilot with a certified license will determine the wind condition of the day and will be in charge of the entire operation. You will be flying around 100~1,000 m in altitude, looking down at the beautiful Furano basin covered in white snow.

The temperature will be extremely low up in the sky, so try to dress warmly for this tour.


After you get off, we will serve you a handmade bread and a hot drink for a light breakfast. With breathtaking scenery, it will be an unforgettable experience for all of you.
