Soaring gracefully at up to 5000ft above the splendour of the British countryside, this is an experience that will never be forgotten. There is no more graceful or peaceful way to fly than by hot air balloon. You'll be met by one of the experienced, fully CAA qualified balloon pilots who will give you an introduction to hot air ballooning and a full safety briefing. You will then be invited to assist with the balloon preparation and inflation, so you will actually be helping to get the balloon airborne! Once all is ready your magical flight will begin, and you will sail through the sky for approximately 1 hour before gently coming back down to earth. Back on terra firma your pilot will invite you to join a toast with a chilled glass of champagne (soft drinks also available). You will be picked up and transported back to your original take-off site so there are no worries about getting back. You will also receive a souvenir brochure and a commemorative certificate signed by Richard Branson and your pilot. This is an experience guaranteed to have you walking on air with your head in the clouds every time you think of it.

Well Worth the Wait

5 out of 5 29 March 2012
Location: Tyne and Wear Age: 25-34 Bought For Myself Occasion: Birthday
This is one of those experiences that everyone should try at least once, I purchased this for my wifes 30th Birthday and it has taken 3 failed attempts to get booked (due to bad weather conditions, so I would reccomend booking the package which includes weather insurance). The veiws were amazing (we flew from Kirkby Lonsdale) and the experience from start to finnish (from unpacking and inflating the balloon (then deflating it and packing it back up agian at the end) to 14 of us helping to pull the Land Rover out of the mud!) was made even more enjoyable by the other passangers we flew with and pilot (John Fenton) and his 'crew' all pitching in together!
