About Balonarski Center Barje
Ballooning Center Barje was established 26 years ago in Ljubljana. We operate balloons with a capacity of up to 4 or 12 passengers. In our company we only employ highly skilled pilots with more than 4000 hours in flight. They are flight instructors or examiners as well so you will be in safe hands at all times. We mainly operate in two areas, although upon request we can also fly elsewhere in Slovenia. One is area of the capital city of Ljubljana and the other is breathtaking area of lake Bled surrounded by the Alps.

Taking a hot air balloon ride in Europe was on my bucket list, so when I discovered Balonarski Center Barje, I had to book it for my husband and I. We met them at 7:00 on a Sunday morning, and headed off to the launch site. They gave us safety tips, showed us how to enter/leave the basket safely, and told us when to stay out of the way. Therefore, we felt safe the entire trip as we could tell that safety was a priority for them. My husband does not normally like heights, but after about 10 minutes, he was able to relax and enjoy the experience knowing that we were in good hands. We got to watch them blow up the balloons and prepare them for launching. After that, we were off! They launched two balloons that morning, which gave us the opportunity to see the other balloon throughout the trip. We flew for a little over an hour, just watching the magnificent views--we flew right over Bled Castle, and had beautiful views of Lake Bled and vineyards. Our pilot, Filip, told us about the scenes which were passing below us throughout the trip. After we landed, we were able to help the crew pack up the balloons and then we met the other balloon crew and passengers for a champagne toast and a ceremony in which we were made honorary baron and baroness of the skies! This was an unexpected really nice part of the experience as we got a chance to talk to the pilots and the crew and get to know them a little. If you have the time and have ever wanted to experience a hot air balloon ride, we cannot think of a better company or a more beautiful place in which to go on a hot air balloon ride! We would highly, highly recommend Balonarski Center Barje! You will not be disappointed!!

Fantastic experience, and an amazing way to see the magical Lake Bled. As someone who is a little nervous of heights and has never ballooned before, I felt absolutely safe and confident the entire time thanks to the experienced team. Lake Bled is truly beautiful and the view from above is even more special- would urge fellow travellers to take the time to fit this into their trip with Grega and his team.

It was a wondeful experience. Starting ealry in the morning, preparing the baloon and then fly for around one hour above lake bled. Simply breath-taking. As we say in Germany "Nicht mehr als heiße Luft". But this time it couldnt have been more. I can higlighy recommend the trip, especially because of the pilots and the crew. Dankeschön!
