Ride in a Hot Air Balloon

Hot air balloon

A ride in a hot air balloon is something we see added by many people as a bucket list idea.

It is quite easy to see why people have a fascination with this amazing form of transport.

Old Technology

In an age of technology and complex aircraft, taking off and landing every second to keep the world moving, a hot air balloon is almost a step back in time.

But if you are looking for a more peaceful and tranquil flight experience then you are going to struggle to find it….

Propelled only by hot air, what a magnificent way to spend an few hours.

Floating and gliding above the world with the chance to see some amazing sites, flights can be tethered or completely mobile.

Static or tethered flights tend to be much shorter and if you are nervous about the idea of going up in a balloon can be a great way to break the ice and see how you feel.

Mobile flights are a popular choice for an unusual special gift, but are very much weather dependant so might not happen when you want them too.

Where to go

Hot air balloon flights are offered all over the world in many popular tourist destinations.

A ride in a hot air balloon is usually a more rural experience and you will see some amazing sights from all over the world from a completely different perspective.

Personally I love the idea of going on safari and witnessing a sunrise over the plains whilst watching the animals from above.

If you are taking a balloon flight locally then this is not a massive issue as the company will keep you updated as to the best time to take off, however if you are incorporating this into part of a foreign holiday you will need to be aware that there is a possibility that you will not get the correct conditions for the flight.
