Hot Air Balloon

There's an unparalleled joy in exploring Tbilisi on foot, soaking in the blend of antiquity and modernity that the city exhibits. However, for a comprehensive perspective of this splendid city, a venture above ground level is a must. Nestled in the heart of the city's Old Town district, Rike Park offers a solution to this: a hot air balloon ride, delivering unforgettable aerial views of the entire cityscape of Tbilisi.

Rike Park, with a history that dates back to the times when the Silk Road caravans crossed Georgia, now houses contemporary attractions. Among these, the hot air balloon ride stands out, offering a unique vantage point to appreciate the city. As the balloon ascends to a height of 150 metres (around 492 feet), you can marvel at the stunning panorama of Tbilisi. This bird's eye view highlights the city's striking juxtaposition of ancient monuments, quaint terrace houses, towering high rises, and modern infrastructure.

Unlike conventional hot air balloon rides, the Tbilisi experience is a tethered one. This means the balloon remains securely anchored to the ground during the ride, ensuring your safety as you enjoy the breathtaking view. The balloon is also equipped with a state-of-the-art wind monitor, which guarantees that riders aren't taken aloft in adverse conditions. Due to Tbilisi's typically mild weather, there are rarely days when the balloon doesn't operate.

The balloon's gondola can comfortably accommodate up to 30 people, allowing for shared experiences. Its quiet, eco-friendly operation employs a large helium balloon, ensuring an environmentally conscious attraction. Each flight lasts for about 15 minutes, promising a memorable experience as you float above the city, be it during the day or under the starlit sky.

When your feet touch the ground again, there's still much to explore. You can luxuriate in Tbilisi's hot sulfur baths, take a cable car to the Narikala Fortress for another perspective, or just meander through the Old Town streets, savouring a piece of freshly baked shoti bread.

Whether you're a local or a visitor, the Tbilisi hot air balloon ride offers a unique perspective on the city, combining exhilarating heights with an eco-conscious experience, ensuring unforgettable memories.
