  • Description

    Equally thrilling and relaxing, a hot-air ballooning adventure is a pure and unforgettable experience – especially over the unique city of Canberra. Depending on the wind direction, your flight will take you over the city & lake allowing unparalleled views of the spectacular Canberra skyline, beautiful suburbs and parklands. The still morning air makes flying conditions perfect during what is known in the hot-air ballooning industry as the "weather window", a gloriously peaceful time over an often hectic city.

    The hot-air ballooning journey begins with a briefing by the pilot before you head to the launch site and, if you like, help prepare the hot-air balloon for flight. Thirty minutes later you'll be drifting gracefully over the countryside. The hot-air ballooning flight itself will last around one hour.

    After gently touching down again a hot air ballooning flight certificate is distributed to all passengers, rounding off a fabulous adventure. The icing on the cake is a glass of Champagne  – the perfect way to toast your hot-air ballooning adventure.

    Hot Air Balloon flights take place at sunrise. The exact time of your Hot Air Balloon flight experience will vary based upon the time of year.

    This is a Hot Air Balloon Flight for 1 (there will be others in the balloon basket with you).

    Awesome balloon flight over Canberra. We were lucky enough to have the balloon to ourselves which made the experience even more personal. The pilot, Dave, and ground crew, Alex, were very friendly and most importantly very experienced and safety conscious. A great flight taking us directly over all of the Canberra sights and landing without a bump. I'd do it again!!

    A thoroughly enjoyable experience on a cold, but clear, Canberra day. Sadly we missed the lake and "central Canberra" but that was on the exigency of the winds. Good flight, excellent briefing, expert pilot, soft landing in a paddock. Expert Pilot and ground crew. Fun to help with the flight "birthing" and the pack up.

    Was a fantastic morning. Would definitely recommend hot air ballooning to anyone who visits Canberra, particularly with this company. They knew what they were talking about, were incredibly knowledgeable and did a great job. I'm terrified of heights, but I wasn't scared at all on the balloon and felt safe because I knew they knew what they were doing.
