Nothing spells ‘adventure’ better than a hot air balloon ride in Hunter Valley by Beyond Ballooning. A trip up in the air offers a one-of-a-kind experience with your friends and loved ones.
Why Go on a Hot Air Balloon Ride
A hot air balloon ride is one experience you and your loved ones should not miss. Beyond Ballooning offers a unique opportunity to celebrate special occasions or simply hang out with your friends.
There is something magical about experiencing the sunrise through hot air balloon rides in Hunter Valley. Apart from the thrill of being in the air, you are also rewarded with beautiful scenery of greenery mixed with touches of the sun. Just hop aboard our sturdy balloons and appreciate the beautiful vineyards of the valley.
Our smallest balloons carry 2 passengers while our largest can accommodate 16 people, including the pilot. The flight generally lasts an hour, which gives you more opportunities to revel in nature’s beauty, as well as snap a couple of photos.
What to Expect on Your First Flight
Your first hot air balloon ride offers the unrivalled feeling of freedom and exhilaration—memories definitely for the books.
First and foremost, you and your companions must be early on site. For morning travels, our team meets you earlier due to the milder weather. You might not feel surefooted for a while, but the reward of a beautiful sunrise from up in the air is something you should not miss.
Before your Hunter Valley balloon ride, your pilot will tell you all that you need to know. The pilot will also go through the safety rules, what you can expect before, during and after the trip, which often lasts an hour.
One of the best things to witness is the balloon inflating. Once you arrive at your departure point, you will see the crew preparing the balloons for inflation. After the pilots engage the burners for heated air, the process usually takes 30 minutes before the balloons completely fill and rise above the basket. The process alone is enough to entertain you and your friends.
