What better way to start your day than floating over the beautiful Barossa Valley? Enjoy an unforgettable hot air balloon flight as the golden light bathes the bucolic landscape. Be awed by some of the region's most prestigious wineries and finish with a delicious champagne breakfast.
Once everyone is signed in on the morning of your flight, your group will be chauffeured to the best launch site - chosen according to the wind speed and direction. Once here, 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 before you know it, it's time to climb aboard for one last briefing, before going up, up and away!
Wave goodbye to the ground crew and take in the amazing 360 degree views of the famous wine region. 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 two and a maximum of 16 passengers.
Friends and family are welcome to spectate on the morning. They may follow the 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. A hat is recommended.
