Welcome to Adventure Balloons NZ!
Come and enjoy the Experience of a lifetime. During this almost four hour amazing Adventure, we will fly across some of the most breathtaking landscapes New Zealand has to offer.
Above you can view a video of one of our Hot Air Balloon flights we did in winter for some of the skiers of Mt Hutt near Methven.
Our Pilot and chase crew will greet you at the meeting point and take you in our 4x4 wheel drive vehicle to the pilots chosen launch site. After your safety briefing, they will inflate the Balloon and get ready for you to board the basket. This a chance for you to get involved and help out, if you which! Once launched, our Pilot will show you the most stunning scenery that New Zealand has to offer, with panoramic views across the whole area. Our very experienced Pilot has a wealth of knowledge of Hot Air Ballooning and will be happy to answer any of your questions.
The flight will take about an hour, flying high and low, upon which your pilot will choose a landing site. The chase vehicle, which will have been following the whole way, will meet you there. After packing away the Balloon there will be a celebratory Sparkling Wine treat - always a favourite for our passengers! Thereafter, you will be returned to the meeting point.
