Flight field

The flight field is located in the Salburua park, coordinates 42º50’49’’ N y 2º38’53’’ W.

The Salburua park is a wetland area located in the east of Vitoria-Gasteiz and is unquestionably the most important point in its green ring both due to its environmental value and for the evolution it has undergone over time.

The system of wetlands in this park comprises four main lagoons of great interest.

Since 2008, a wetlands interpretation centre known as Ataria has been open which conducts activities to raise awareness among and educate citizens regarding environmental issues.


Night Glow festival globos vitori

On Saturday evening there will be a magical evening of light and sound with a show known as Night-Glow, with hot air balloons in the Mendizabala car park for the enjoyment of all those people in Álava who wish to attend.

This is a public space with free entrance which will provide the citizens with an ideal moment to see the hot air balloons taking part in the regatta up close, take photos and enjoy a fun evening.
