ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Weekday Balloon Flight at Sunrise - 1 Person

Rise with the sun and enjoy stunning aerial views, during this hot air balloon ride at dawn. Experience the sensation of flight at one of multiple UK locations.

This weekday hot air balloon flight is possibly the loveliest way to greet the day. Watch the sun rise from the horizon as the world wakes up, from an unbeatable 2000ft vantage point. Float through the air up there and let your mind empty of all those stressful thoughts, as you move with the wind in your hot air balloon, over the patchwork landscape one of our wonderful locations throughout the UK.The hot air balloon sunrise flight will begin with you meeting the crew to sign in. After this you will have a pre-flight briefing, before you help to inflate the balloon with the crew. Once all final pre-flight checks have been completed, it's time for you to climb into the basket and get ready for take off!

The take off will be beautifully smooth, in fact you probably won't realise you've actually left solid ground until you realise that people, cars and houses are getting smaller and smaller. Hot air balloon flights are peaceful, quiet but for the occasional growl of the burners that keep you at altitude. After approximately one hour of flight you will start to prepare for landing. The hot air balloon flight will finish with you landing, then helping the crew to pack down the balloon. You will end this fantastic experience by enjoying a lovely bubbly champagne toast with a commemorative flight certificate presentation.

This experience is valid for weekday mornings only, excluding Bank Holidays.

Excleent Hot Air Balloon Trip with Wickers World

The information given is excellent. We were very lucky as we managed to fly on our fist attempt. Other people in the group had been waiting for over a year. Lorrie our pilot was knowledgeable and took the time to chat, Make sure you get there half an hour before flying so you can be involved in the unpacking of the balloon, it all adds to the experience. Wear a hat as advised, keeps the heat off your head. All in all a great experience. Remember to bend zee knees on landing and wear outdoor shoes, you never know which field you will land in. Grass is very wet in the morning. Thank you Lorrrie and to the chaps that helped with transportation that day, sorry I can not remember your names.
