Start your day off with a spectacular sunrise hot air balloon ride in Queenstown!
After an early start with hotel pick-up from select hotels, you'll be transported to our start location. Listen carefully as your expert pilot demonstrates how to get these giant balloons up in the air. Then rise to altitudes as high as 6000ft and drift with the breeze, you will witness quite possibly the best panoramic views of Queenstown and its surrounds - "The Hobbit" filming locations, Southern Alps, Lake Wakatipu, the Remarkables mountain range, New Zealand's finest golf courses and much, much more.
Enjoy sweeping views on this balloon ride which lasts for one hour. Your professional pilot will provide you with detailed explanations of landmarks and places of interest along the way. Upon landing you'll be encouraged to join in the folding and packing up the hot-air balloon. Afterwards, celebrate your once-in-a-lifetime experience with a delightful champagne celebration with pastries and muffins in the field.
