A luxury addition to viewing the Algarve from the sky is a private balloon flight. This activity is suitable for all ages and does not require any physical exertion from the participants.  The location off the balloon flights always depends on the wind as does the landing and during the summer months the flights can only be done at dawn but the experience is one most cherish for life.
