The adventure of ballooning is one of the most exciting activities of Active Tourism and Adventure Tourism that takes place in Andalusia.
The provinces of Granada, Malaga, Cádiz and Seville are the ideal setting to experience the exciting adventure that aerial sports such as Aerostación provide you.
Dare to live the adventure of ballooning, discover another way to enjoy Active Tourism, and see from a different perspective landscapes such as Ronda, Granada or Seville. Feel a new way of adventure.
It all started in 1997 when Miguel Julia owner, founder, and manager of Glovento Sur was captivated by the image of a hot-air balloon. He began to dream about the possibility of flying in a hot-air balloon and finally about how he could make hot-air ballooning his profession. Then he thought about his friend, and now colleague, Santiago Valle, a dreamer just like himself, with ample experience in management in adventure tourism enterprises.
Upon the arrival of our first hot-air balloon (our dear and now old “Alpujarreno”) the first flight equipment was created: First there was Antonio, who shares his passion for photography with our team and works closely with our rescue team. (Don’t be alarmed, a rescue team is always by our side to land the balloon at the end of our journey. It is standard practice).
The next to join our family were Susana and Beatriz, who took on the difficult task of coordinating each and every one of the jobs and activities that Glovento Sur is still developing. About the strength of our team, Libe, who takes on the position of providing the fast arrival of the rescue team to land the balloon and the end of the journey. When we expanded to our Algodonales branch (CADIZ), joins the team Martin Cambel, our specialist rescues.
Recently we have joined as pilot Pipe, Raúl, João and our technical flight team has increased, also counting sporadically with Gerardo, Carlos, Fran and Fernando.
Thanks to this team and the collaboration of our patrons, today Glovento Sur is made up of a variable flock of hot-air balloons able to offer service in all parts of Andalusia.
