Experience the bliss of a hot air balloon flight with this relaxing trip floating over gorgeous scenery. Begin on the ground, meet the pilot and have a safety briefing, before getting stuck in and helping to prepare and inflate the balloon. Fly to heights of up to 3,000 feet, taking in panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The balloon moves with the wind so no breeze is felt, meaning the atmosphere is completely calm. Upon landing, help to pack the balloon away and then get driven back to the launch site to receive a flight certificate. Balloon operators vary, with some offering a slightly longer flight and others a glass of champagne on landing. Truly the most serene way to fly!

In a Nutshell
  • Choose to fly any weekday in the morning or evening
  • Help to prepare the balloon for take-off and then head for the sky
  • Pick from a range of locations across the UK
  • All flights are provided by certified CAA approved operators
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    Weekdays from March/April to October/November at most venues. Flights take place at dawn or dusk, when the air is most stable. Dates fill very quickly, so book at least four weeks in advance.
  • Participant Guidelines
    Maximum weight 18 stone. Minimum height 4'6''. Minimum age is 8. Under 16's must be accompanied by an adult. Ballooning isn't suitable for pregnant women. Any medical conditions must be declared in advance.
  • Weather
    Ballooning is extremely weather dependent - it is crucial to call the venue before the flight. If postponed, an alternative date and location can be arranged (please contact the operator for information).
  • Duration
    Actual flight length is determined by the conditions on the day. The experience normally lasts around three hours, including one hour for inflating the balloon and one hour for packing the balloon away and returning to the launch site.
  • Numbers on the Day
    Share the balloon with between 8 -16 other flyers, plus a qualified pilot.
  • Dress Code
    Wear trousers, long sleeves and sensible footwear (no high heels please). Please don't wear loose scarves or jewellery. Bring a hat - the heat from the burner overhead can be intense. Bear in mind that launch and landing sites can be muddy.
