  • Description

    Equally thrilling and relaxing, a hot-air ballooning adventure is a pure and unforgettable experience – especially over the beautiful Yarra Valley. Depending on the wind direction you'll take your tranquil hot-air balloon flight over the Yarra River with breathtaking views of the mountains. The still morning air makes flying conditions perfect during what is known in the hot-air ballooning industry as the "weather window", a gloriously quiet time over the peaceful region.

    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.

    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).

    great team with fantastic attitudes and experience. Four of us attended and were all metaphorically and literally "blown" away by the experience.
