Turn a dream into a reality and treat someone to the ultimate experience of hot air ballooning. Soar above the trees and feel overwhelmed by the breathtaking beauty below.

The excitement starts when you meet at the designated launch site, just before sun rise. Here you will have refreshments and get the opportunity to mingle with your fellow passengers or simply take in the quietness of the morning. At this time the crew will be busy with the preparation of the balloons afterwhich you will receive a safety briefing and be invited to board. It won't be long before you are up in the air appreciating the beauty and drifting quietly through the skies. Here you will have the opportunity capture spectacular scenery and take pictures. After landing you will be met by retrieve vehicles who will collect and take you to a scenic place where you will enjoy champagne to toast the spectacular flight.

A package to include overnight accommodation for two people can also be arranged. Please enquire if this is your preference.
