  • 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 and will be sent to you upon booking.

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

    I thought the flight was terrific and I’m very happy I went on it. I was hoping it took us over the lake. I might do it again one year as part of the balloon festival weekend. I think that would be fun. I know someone who had a rough landing many years ago with a different company but my landing was perfect which was great. I also realise I was very lucky with the weather, particularly since I came from Sydney. Another passenger said it was their third attempt due to previously unsuitable weather.

    Gary was our pilot. We were in a small group of 8. Gary had our safety and full attention to what was happening, advised us on all safety requirements which was pleasing for 1st time flyers. Thank you Gary for an amazing experience.
