Hot air balloon adventures above Queenstown

There’s something magical about rising gently into the air on a balloon as the sun rises over the Remarkables. A dawn balloon adventure over Queenstown makes a romantic experience or a sensational family outing.

You can help the crew inflate the balloon and they’ll show you how everything works before you’re helped onboard and ascend to altitudes of 6,000 feet, where you’ll drift above the Wakatipu basin, enjoying panoramic views of the lake, mountain ranges and rivers.
