Hot Air Ballooning
Get a different perspective on the world – a birds eye view! Hot Air Ballooning is an exhilarating adventure, where you float with the breeze several hundred metres in the air. You feel no sensation of movement as you ride with the wind.
Hot Air Balloon FlightsYour adventure begins in the cooler, still hours of the early morning, when the air is more stable. The launch site is determined by the weather on the morning and the Hot Air Balloon inflated using a giant portable fan, before the burner is turned on and basket tipped into an upright position. Then it’s time to clamber into the wicker basket and gently rise, as the burner heats the air inside the balloon.
The Hot Air Balloon flight is both picturesque and tranquil. You hear very little sound from the awakening world below. The silence is only broken with blasts from the propane burner heating the air in your balloon to keep you cruising across the skies for longer. Watch as the sun bursts from the horizon and paints the sky pink in a spectacular morning sunrise.
Your destination remains a mystery till the final touchdown – you surrender control and are taken in the direction of the wind. In some locations you'll top off your exhilarating morning with a champagne breakfast, and reflect on the adventure you’ve just embarked on.
