Our hot air balloon early bird experience is a truly delightful way to start the day.

Arriving at the launch site before sunrise which could be at any of the various locations around Devon, Cornwall, Somerset or Dorset, the balloon will be prepared and as the sun rises, passengers will start their amazing adventure.

You will see the stunning scenery of the West Country in the unique early morning light and, unlike any other form of flying, the visibility is 360 degrees.

As you glide along, a model world unfolds with familiar landmarks taking on new perspectives.

Far below the support vehicle will be following - not sure exactly where the gentle breeze will take you - oh what mysterious fun!

After the gentle landing you will receive a glass of champagne (or a soft drink if you prefer!) and a commemorative certificate of your flight before helping to pack up and then driven back to the launch site.
