Imagine, floating above the Barossa Valley, drifting with the breeze and not a care in the world. Dreaming? Think again! Ballooning is probably the most romantic form of transportation, from the traditional wicker basket to the champagne breakfast. Balloon flying in the morning, wine tasting in the afternoon. Sound tempting?
Once at the launch site we then inflate the balloon which takes about half an hour. Then it's up, up and away for an experience of a lifetime. We fly with the wind for approximatley an hour which gives you plenty of time to take photos and just enjoy the sense of freedom drifting with the breeze.
Then when we land, our support vehicle arrives, we pack the balloon away, then head off to pop some corks and enjoy some of the local bubbly and fine Barossa food. Our gourmet champagne breakfast features a selection of the finest Barossa foods and good "ol' fashioned" home cooking.
After your champagne breakfast everyone is then officially certified a "Balloonatic" with your own flight certificate. So in total you're with us for about 5 - 6 hours - from the time we pick you up from the meeting point to the time we drop you back at the same meeting point.
We fly down wind for approximately an hour. On landing the balloon is packed away and the retrieve crew picks us all up.
