About Us

Adventure Balloons New Zealand is a local company, based just outside Christchurch, South Island. We offer a unique flight experience to remember, whether you’re in New Zealand on holiday, or as a homegrown Kiwi why not enjoy our stunning country from the skies, perhaps to celebrate a special occasion.

Our Chief Pilot Graeme Church has many hours hot air balloon experience flying in New Zealand, the UK and other parts of Europe, including Alpine Flying as well as a flight across the English Channel! Graeme also holds a fixed wing aeroplane licence.

George Currie also provides valuable support as our Crew Chief having previously and successfully owned and operated the original company Aoraki Balloon Safaris for many years.
