Take to the skies for a sunrise or sunset Champagne balloon flight from Launceston in Cornwall on this morning or evening adventure. You'll spend 3-4 hours with your crew, including your 1-hour flight, watch the balloon being set up, and enjoy Cornwall's rugged moors, rolling countryside, and pretty towns and villages from the air with a glass of chilled Champagne.
Sunset and sunrise times vary throughout the year, but you'll typically meet your crew around 6am in Dutson (morning flights) or 6pm in Launceston (evening flights). Your pilot will give you a full safety briefing before the crew drive you to the launch site in Land Rover 4-wheel drives.
Marvel as the roaring burner inflates the balloon, and the empty shell lifts gradually off the ground, then step into the basket for a serene 1-hour flight. You'll float over some of Cornwall's prettiest countryside, including moors, fields, medieval market towns, and pretty villages, as you enjoy a glass of chilled Champagne. Bring your camera to capture stunning aerial views illuminated by the rising or setting sun!
Your crew will track your flight with vehicles and trailers. On landing, as the balloon deflates, you're free to help the crew pack the balloon away. Finally, drive back to the meeting point, to receive your souvenir certificate signed by your pilot.
Please note: For safety reasons, balloon flights may be cancelled in bad weather. Please dress for a country walk at the time of day and season.
