Description:

Bill Harrop's "Original" Balloon Safaris. If you're going to do...

Bill Harrop's "Original" Balloon Safaris. If you're going to do it, do it in unassailable style. It's sunrise. The silence is only punctuated by the occasional blast of the powerful burners and the faint call of a bird or animal far beneath. The thrill is indescribable. Picture yourselves sipping champagne as you hover gently above the tree tops, or soar high above the mountain peaks. After landing, savour a delectable champagne breakfast at our well established, traditionally exquisite and beautifully appointed Clubhouse Pavilion and Restaurant where you will be filled with the warmest of memories.

From the moment you arrive early in the morning, you know you are in for an experience of a life time. We had perfect weather and were in the air to watch the sun rise from behind the mountain. This company is amazing, all their staff were friendly and professional and contributed to an overall great experience.

A hot air balloon flight is more than an experience, it is a unique & tranquil way to witness the sunrise. From arrival to leaving we were treated as special guests. Our pilot, Marc was fantastic in not only his flying skills, but the way in which he communicated with us. The ground crews and the people in the club... More

Incredible experience! Friendly crew and staff! Breakfast and Champagne included. Very safe. You pay after the flight. Cheaper than similar in Mexico or Loire. Strongly recommended!
