What to Expect
Travel reference:

Start your day off with a spectacular sunrise hot air balloon ride in the beautiful Hunter Valley!

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 after you know it, you'll be floating up to watch the sun rise into the clear blue Hunter Valley sky. Enjoy sweeping views of Hunter Valley on this balloon ride which lasts for 45 to 60 minutes. 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, enjoy a crisp glass of champagne and tasty breakfast at Peterson House Winery. Moreover, you will get the commemorative flight certificate and you can continue to stroll the Hunter Vally about 10 am after breakfast.

  • Q:Can you give some suggestions about what time of the year is best for me to fly?
    A:Hi there, thanks for your question. The summer months generally provide the very best weather for ballooning. August and September are traditionally quite windy and we often see a higher proportion of cancellations in these months.

  • Q:Why do you ask me to provide my weight?
