About Pinkel Balloons - Tours
Discover the Netherlands from above and experience the thrill of ballooning as it should be with Pinkel Balloons. Pinkel Balloons is a boutique style ballooning company (not a "hop on-hop off" balloon riding company). We fly balloons with small baskets ( 2-3 to max 4 passengers + pilot) Our flights are therefore very intimate and exclusive.You will share your balloon experience with the people that you love/family and/or friends. We understand that flying a balloon privately may be a costly experience. We are therefore determined to make your flight as personal and memorable as possible and taylor it to your needs. We will share our passion for ballooning with you. Ballooning with Pinkel Balloons is a hands on outdoor & rugged experience. All in a good way. You will spend time in nature and will be invited to assist with setting up the balloon and we will explain everything that you wish to know about the flight. Balloon flights with Pinkel Balloons typically last for about 1 to 1.5 hours. The duration of the total experience will be about 3 to 4 hours. You will enjoy the memories for a lifetime.All flights during Spring and Summer will take place in the evening hours, 2 hours before sunset. We fly balloons all year round including autumn and winterflights. The chances to fly throughout the winter do exist but they are rare until March when things normally improve. All flights include a Champagne toast and a choice of some great snacks to celebrate your experience. Special arrangement can be made for flights in the north of Holland. We will travel by car from Amsterdam via 'De Afsluitdijk' to Friesland, one of the most beautiful provinces of The Netherlands. Flights will be made in Spring and Summer only. Very beautiful ! Ask for more information via our e-mail address. Bookings with Pinkel Balloons are made through our e-mail address. We will send you further information, prices and our terms of conditions. Please make your booking at least 10 days in advance. Thank You and looking forward to meeting you.

Wow. An amazing, authentic ballooning experience that really takes your breath away. Holland from the air is beautiful and the intimacy of a private flight is unrivaled. Dook is extremely experienced, I would recommend this to anyone.
