What better way to spend a morning than floating over the beautiful Barossa Valley? Take an unforgettable hot air balloon flight over the Barossa, with the opportunity to help inflate and pack away the balloon, followed by a delicious breakfast with sparkling wine.
Once everyone is signed in on the morning of your flight, everyone will be chauffeured to the best launch site for the morning (chosen according to the wind speed and direction). Once at the launch site, your pilot and crew will inflate the balloon ready for take off. You're welcome to join in with the preparation and discover how these huge balloons get up in the air. This whole process takes about 40 minutes, and then it's time to climb aboard for one last briefing, before going up, up and away!
Wave goodbye to the ground crew (they will follow below and meet you when you land) and take in the amazing 360° views. Soak in the peace and beauty of floating over the countryside as the sun is rising. Make sure you have your camera at the ready as there will be incredible photo opportunities.
After about an hour in the air, your pilot will land and it’s time to pack the balloon away, before driving you back for a delicious breakfast. Sip on sparkling wine and indulge in the best Barossa produce, as you chat about the unforgettable flight you've just shared.
Once this experience has been confirmed changes are at the discretion of the experience provider and arranged directly with them according to this policy:
There will be a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 16 passengers.
Friends and family are welcome on the morning. They may follow our ground crew in their own vehicle.
Ballooning is very weather dependant and your flight may be rescheduled due to unsuitable weather conditions. If your flight does not go ahead, you will be rescheduled by the experience provider directly.
Dress in comfortable clothing for the season, and for the overnight minimum temperature. It will be no colder in the balloon than on the ground. Flat soled walking shoes are best, no high heels or sandals please. A hat is recommended too.
This experience departs from Nuriootpa, SA.
