Sunrise Balloons is based in Queenstown, New Zealand, flights are scheduled daily, all year round, weather permitting. Queenstown is quite possibly the best landscape in the world to view, and it's even better during a hot air balloon ride followed by a champagne celebration. Come and experience Hot Air Ballooning with us!

Thanks to an amazing crew for a trip of a lifetime. This was truly the best way to see such a stunning part of the world and look down over beautiful countryside and snow capped mountains. We loved getting involved in inflating the balloon. Smoothest...More
