Do you fancy spending a weekend up in the air in a green city?
Bring your hot air balloon to Vitoria-Gasteiz and enjoy an experience you will want to repeat: Basque cuisine, Rioja Alavesa wineries, friendly locals and above all green!
Why come as a hot air balloon pilot to the event RIG Vitoria-Gasteiz?
Because its medieval quarter has been declared a monumental area and is one of the prettiest and best-conserved in the north of the Iberian peninsula. What’s more, it is home to artistic testimonies of great value, from the Gothic to the neo-Classic.
Because of its nature and for being the “Green Capital”
Vitoria-Gasteiz is the provincial capital with the largest number of green areas per inhabitant.
Because of its fiestas and traditions
Going on a pintxo route, dressing up in traditional dress during local fiestas or doing popular Basque sports, ranging from Basque pelota to stone-lifting, these are some examples of what the city has to offer.
Because of its gastronomy
Because you can taste Michelin-starred dishes, artistic creations in their minutest expression (the famous “pintxos” and “cazuelitas”) or a tasty stone-grilled T-bone steak along with local cider in one of the typical popular Basque ciderhouses.
