Balloon Tallinn, one of the most popular attractions among tourists and local citizens in Tallinn, will continue flying throughout the year, making it one of the kind in the whole world.
Balloon Tallinn, launched in the end of June, served over 2100 passenger flights during the summer season and will continue operating throughout the year. Summer season record was set at the Tallinn Maritime Days in July, when Balloon Tallinn flew more than 500 passengers a day. The summer season as well as the daily flight schedule of Balloon Tallinn ends on 28th September.
Starting from 29th September, when the summer season ends, it is possible to have a balloon ride on weekends from 10AM to 8PM, if the weather allows. The flight schedule gets busier on school holidays, Christmas, New Years Eve and additional flights will be added to the schedule on the weekdays.
In order to make flying in the winter possible, a special "snow cap" will be placed on the top of the Balloon Tallinn, which prevents snow accumulation at the top of the balloon and helps the snow to glide down.
The viewing platform i.e. the gondola of Balloon Tallinn filled with helium and anchored to the ground can accommodate up to 30 people and allows passengers to enjoy panoramic views from the height of 120 metres. In clear weather, the visibility from the Balloon Tallinn gondola will be over 40 kilometers. This is the highest open-air viewpoint in the Tallinn city center and the most northern attraction of its kind in the world.
