Fulfil the ambition of a lifetime, experiencing a bird's eye view while slowly drifting across the Bath landscape enjoying the magnificent experience of hot air ballooning. For a unique birthday present, anniversary gift or special treat, rise above it all! Buy one of our flexible vouchers, which are valid for 12 months and book a flight.

Our aim is to give everyone a pleasant, enjoyable and safe flight. Ballooning is an adventure, a magic carpet ride, something not to be rushed. The flight will last for about one hour, the whole outing usually takes between 3 and 4 hours. We fly in the late afternoon or evening and soon after dawn to take advantage of the stable air and light winds found at these times of the day. We do not fly if it is raining or very windy. The main flying season is March to October, however, "Exclusive" flights are available throughout the year. For further information see the website or call us.

Ballooning, like serendipity, is the art of making happy and unexpected discoveries by chance. Where we go is entirely dependent upon the wind. No two flights are the same. The average distance we travel is ten miles, affording you stunning views of the surrounding scenery.

Age is no barrier to enjoying this spectacular journey, our passengers ages range from nine to ninety! We provide a friendly and personal service. Passengers may like to help lay out and launch the balloon or simply leave this to our ground crew. For your safety and comfort we suggest you wear outdoor clothing suitable for the time of year. A balloon basket is a brilliant platform for photography, bring a camera.

Chilled Champagne or orange juice is served with our compliments. Each passenger receives a commemorative flight certificate signed by the pilot. Our experienced retrieve crew, who are in radio contact with the balloon, meet us on landing and will return you to the launch site.
For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Bath holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Bath Balloons and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Very well organised and it is clear safely is the number one priority which is very reassuring. Being involved in the inflation and packing the equipment away at the end just adds to the experience.....  more »

  • Very friendly and experienced service. The balloon ride we took was just amazing. Luckily we had open blue sky so the views once we were up were superb.
  • Got this as a gift for my partner. He loved the experience of flying over Bath, even though it was cloudy. I wouldn’t bother with the Champagne flight, as it’s not quite ‘special’, but flying in a hot air balloon should be on your bucket list.
