The temperature during the balloon flight is the same as on the ground; wear standard clothes for the season and comfortable shoes wear preferably sports shoes, as if you were hiking .
SUMMER: we recommend a hat to protect your head from the sun and heat coming from the burner of the balloon (can be annoying for those who are higher in the usual average) and sunscreen
