Sunrise Hot Air Ballooning Adventure Over Barossa Valley
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?
Your pilot and crew will meet you at Langmeil Winery approximately 1.5 hours before sunrise (The time varies throughout the year). Langmeil Winery is located approximately 75km north east of Adelaide, South Australia.
Once everybody is assembled and signed in, your pilot will give you a briefing before you board our comfortable 4wds all with forward facing seats and air-conditioning throughout.
Don’t forget to bring your cameras as there will be some amazing photo opportunities along the way. The Barossa Valley is famous for having some of the most gorgeous landscapes in all of Adelaide.
Now the adventure really begins. We will drive to the best launch site for the morning. The launch site is chosen according to the wind speed and direction. We have a dozen different launch sites around the region. We know it’s early but now is a good opportunity to get to know your pilot and crew and ask any questions you may have. Also watch as your pilot tests the lower wind conditions by releasing and tracking a party balloon.
Once we arrive at the launch site your pilot and crew will inflate the balloon ready for take off. You are welcome to join in with the preparation and discover how we get these huge balloons in the air. This whole process takes about 30-40 minutes.
Jump on board, one last briefing and then it’s up, up and away! Wave goodbye to the crew, they will follow on the ground and meet you when you land. Time to relax and take in the amazing 360⁰ views. Experience the peace and beauty of floating over the country side as the sun is rising. You will fly for about an hour before landing.
Once you have landed your crew will meet you and it’s time to pack the balloon away. Feel free to join in the fun, or stand back and take the opportunity to take a few more photos. Hop back in our comfy vehicles and it’s back to breakfast.
The morning ends with a delicious gourmet breakfast back at the historic Langmeil Winery. Relax and chat with your fellow passengers and pilot about the mornings events, whilst sipping Langmeil sparkling wine and indulging in the best Barossa produce.
To wrap up we will present you with your Souvenir Balloonatic Flying Certificate. This is also a good opportunity to purchase the CD of Photos from your flight.
At the end of proceedings, you arer most welcome to sample the great Barossa wines at the Langmeil Winery Cellar Door. The friendly staff at Langmeil will take you through their award winning range of wines and provide 10% discount on cellar door purchases by passengers.
