A Hunter Valley experience unlike any other, this sunrise balloon flight offers spectacular views of the beautiful countryside bathed in the golden glow of the rising sun from the heights of your hot air balloon. Beginning with a briefing for your flight, you'll be transported to the launch site where you'll be able to assist in inflating the balloon or take the opportunity to grab some photographs. Taking to the sky you'll float above breathtaking views of the valley for the duration of your 45 or 70 minute flight and enjoy the tranquil breezes that only ballooners can enjoy. Pass over vineyards, rivers and hills before coming to land at the Balloon Aloft property for a champagne breakfast.
