    Why You'll Love This

    What's Included?

    Take off to experience breathtaking views in a dream scenario - hot air ballooning at sunrise. Float with the breeze over the picturesque landscape while viewing the stunning vista of the Blue Mountain to the west and the glistening ocean to the east.

    You will be welcomed by your pilot and friendly crew one hour before sunrise. Tea or coffee is available while you listen to your flight briefing. You are then transported to the pilot's chosen launch site depending on the wind conditions. Here you can either help with the inflation of the balloon, or you are welcome to stand back and take photographs.

    Once inflated you climb into the basket for a briefing with your experienced pilot. When airbourne, relax and enjoy the sensation of floating as one with the wind. As the balloon drifts serenely you can take pictures of the beautiful surrounding area or just enjoy the excitement, peace and tranquility of your balloon ride.

    After approximately 1 hour of hot air ballooning you will be greeted by your crew as you land softly back down on earth. The romance of the morning continues as you feast on a sumptuous champagne breakfast and celebrate the most exhilarating morning of your life!

    Please Note: Children must be at least 120cm tall.
