Hot Air Ballooning
Price from £185 per person
For a truly "out of this world" experience, enjoy a hot air balloon flight across the rolling green Canterbury Plains towards the Southern Alps.
Watch the sun rising from the Pacific Ocean and marvel at the glorious coastline. The flight lasts approximately an hour before landing in a farmer's field with a celebratory glass of champagne or fruit juice.
Canterbury's geography and climate are ideal for ballooning, they provide a unique situation where passengers can experience Canterbury's landscape as only a few have seen it from a gently floating hot air balloon.
.......'There is no other place in the world where it is possible to fly from the centre of the city, in view of the sun rising out of the ocean, toward snow-capped mountains'..................
An early departure ensures the calmest time of the day when the winds are light.
