Floating majestically into the sky in a huge balloon is one of the most romantic ways to fly and seeing the sun rise or set from the wicker basket is often ore inspiring, as are the spectacular views as you travel over the countryside.
The actual balloon flight lasts for around an hour and the balloon can travel between 2 and 20 miles depending on the wind, reaching heights of up to 3,000 feet. Passengers are advised to allow 3 to 4 hours for the whole balloon experience; this includes the launching and landing of the balloon and certificate ceremony.
Passengers are also invited to help in the launching and deflating of the balloon, adding to the experience and spectators are welcomed to see you off as long as they do not interfere with the balloon crew.
The views are what most people take a balloon flight for and from the balloons basket you will be able to see various towns and villages, spectacular landmarks, stunning countryside and even wildlife providing able opportunities for aerial photography.
