Marvel at the sky as it puts on a colourful show during this enchanting hot air balloon flight over northern Tasmania. Sharing the moment with a special someone, feel the magic of floating amongst the clouds and with the rising sun, illuminating the rolling hills and countryside below.
They say the early bird gets the worm and you'll find out why with this awe-inspiring hot air balloon flight over northern Tasmania. Approximately 90 minutes before sunrise, you will be driven from the meeting point to the launch site, where you will watch your ride come to life during the balloon inflation. The flight path will depend on the wind direction of the day, you may fly to the north of Launceston and the Tamar Valley or to the west in Deloraine and Westbury. Once aboard, set off into the sky and watch as the sun peaks over the horizon and lights up the world below. Flying in a hot air balloon is a truly unique experience - you will feel like you are in a dream as you gently float with the clouds without the sensation of wind. Take delight in stunning panoramic views of the rolling hills and countryside below.

Weather plays an important role in balloon flights. The pilot has the ultimate decision on the morning of the flight and cancellations are for your safety or to comply with regulations. Reasons to cancel are normally strong winds, rain or low visibility conditions.
This is an outdoor activity, the fields are very often damp or wet at this time of the morning. You do not want to get cold feet, so please bring appropriate shoes or boots (spare shoes and socks is recommended if in any doubt!). Also, ballooning is very much "audience participation" and we can get a little dirty on packing the balloon away so be practical in every sense. Bring a hat, cap, beanie or hoodie to protect your head from the heat of the burner.
