Attraction details
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!

The morning is cold but the spirits are high and the whole experience from helping setting up the Balloon - the Ballooning experience through to the landing - Celebrating and the Pack up of the Balloon was an experience delivered to us first time floaters, with exceptional professionalism and we all felt safe during the entire performance of floating in the sky, with amazing beautiful sunrise and photo op views. Well informative info of the area we covered. Thank you Canterbury Ballooning team for the great Ballooning experience. Will be coming again with more people.

Thank Fiona N

We had an incredible balloon ride last week and were fortunate to have clear skies with just enough cloud that we could poke above them and see the tops of the alps! Mike was obviously very knowledgable and skilled with his balloon piloting -Our only criticism would be his interaction with ground staff which was a bit rude and made us feel uneasy at times. Would definitely recommend this experience to any one considering whether to balloon in Canterbury.

Wow! A cold clear day after the longest night of the year. What an amazing way to see the sunrise. The views are amazing and Michael and Britta (sorry if I spelled that wrong) are both very professional, knowledgeable and fun.
