Hot air balloon adventures above Queenstown

There’s something truly 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 Queenstown and the Wakatipu basin, enjoying panoramic views of the lake, mountain ranges and rivers.

After your flight, toast your balloon adventure with champagne and enjoy morning tea with your fellow passengers. Your balloon pilots are all experienced civil aviation approved pilots, so you can relax and enjoy your hot air balloon ride over Queenstown, knowing that you’re in safe hands.
