Everyone should experience Hot Air Ballooning at least once. The tranquil exhilaration of floating with the wind at sunrise over beautiful scenery is absolutely unforgettable. Book now!
Equally thrilling and relaxing, a hot-air ballooning adventure is a romantic and unforgettable experience – especially over the beautiful city of Melbourne. Depending on the wind direction you may make a tranquil hot-air balloon flight over the CBD and the Yarra River, or over the inner suburbs, parks and gardens. 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.
The icing on the cake is a sumptuous Champagne breakfast at the Sofitel Hotel - the perfect way to toast your hot-air ballooning adventure. The Sofitel Hotel is also the meeting point for the adventure, although pick-ups are available at all major hotels/motels within the CBD.
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.
