For high flyers, hot air ballooning is an experience not to be missed! Begin on solid ground with a full flight safety briefing from the pilot, before assisting in the preparation and inflation of the hot air balloon. Mount the basket and launch skyward up to 3,000 feet, enjoying the peaceful tranquillity and picturesque countryside views of South West England or Wales. As the balloon moves in unison with the wind, there is no resistance, making the ride smooth and relaxing. Afterwards, help the crew pack the balloon away before being driven back to the original launch site to receive a commemorative flight certificate. Balloon operators vary, with some offering a slightly longer flight and others a glass of champagne on landing.

In a Nutshell
  • Available weekdays and weekends for sunrise and sunset flights
  • Pure peace and tranquillity at up to 3,000 feet
  • Travel from a launch site in Somerset, Bristol, Monmouthshire, Devon, Wiltshire, Dorset, Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Herefordshire or Shropshire
  • All flights are provided by certified CAA approved operators
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    Weekdays and weekends from March/April to October/November. Flights take place at dawn and dusk, when the air is at its 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 avoid loose scarves or jewellery. Bring a hat - the heat from the burner overhead can be intense. Launch and landing sites can be muddy.
