Methven-Mt Hutt Scenic Hot Air Balloon Flight
This is a quick run down of your experience.
About Your Experience
Flights take place early morning, when the weather conditions are calm and stable, and so suitable for Hot Air Balloon flights.
We meet in Methven Town Centre before you travel a short distance with us to one of our launch sites, which will be chosen to give you the very best flight experience, depending on the weather conditions on the day.
You will be able to get involved and help our crew with setting the balloon up ready for flight and packing away afterward.
The actual flight will last for around an hour, when you’ll enjoy the unique and very special experience of a hot air balloon flight flying at up to 9500ft, with superb long-distance views across Canterbury Plains and the dramatic Southern Alps including Mount Cook and beyond, as well as the Rakaia Gorge, and its glacial river as it flows out towards the coast.
After we’ve landed we’ll enjoy a celebratory drink before transporting you back to Methven.
We will arrange meeting point and time after you have booked.
Allow up to 4 hours for the whole experience.

Thank you to one of our lovely passengers, Elli, for allowing us to use this video.
