Owner description: Escape to a world of peace and tranquillity. Hot Air Ballooning is a magical experience and a flight with Ballooning Canterbury offers panoramic views across the fertile Canterbury Plains to the Southern Alps. There is nothing quite so romantic and exciting as floating across an ever changing landscape. Come fly with us!

This is a fantastic experience. My daughter Emma took me out for a 68 birthday treat. Thoroughly recommend this up up and away experience. Great team, thanks Mike.
Cheers

This was an awesome experience, Michael the pilot and his team were brilliant, explained everything in detail, lots of photo opportunities, being a hands on experience added to the fun of it.

We were lucky to squeeze in a balloon flight on our NZ holiday. Our pilot Nick was great at pointing out things of interest and was happy to answer all questions fired at him. We were able to travel about 16km - quite a long way in ballooning terms. Both my husband and I enjoyed the everything about the experience including the hands on helping to set up and pack up the balloon. I would happily recommend this experience.

We had a great ride made even better by the fun and friendly pilots and staff. They had lots of local knowledge too which made the trip even more interesting.

Loved it, Michael the pilot was brilliant as is Regan in crew (and not just because he found my lost phone in a paddock of long grass...!). A must do and beautiful way to start the day, looking out in every direction of the South Island. Thank you & highly recommend.
