  • Description


    Equally thrilling and relaxing, a hot air balloon adventure is a pure and unforgettable experience – especially over the unique landscape surrounding Surfers Paradise. Depending on the wind direction, your flight will take you over unparalleled views of the spectacular Gold Coast hinterland. 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 the canals and waterways of the Gold Coast.

    The hot air balloon ride 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. Then you'll be drifting gracefully over the countryside. The hot-air ballooning flight itself will last around 30 minutes.

    After gently touching down again a hot air ballooning flight certificate is distributed to all passengers, rounding off a fabulous 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).
