Imagine drifting quietly through the still air, 6,000 feet above Queenstown.
With Sunrise Balloons, you can experience hot air ballooning while drinking in bird’s-eye views over some of New Zealand’s most dramatic landscapes.
Jaw-dropping mountain vistas of Coronet Peak, The Remarkables, Mount Aspiring and the Southern Alps are just the start.
Rising into the sky at daybreak, you’ll spot Lake Wakatipu, the iconic Shotover and Kawarau rivers while you float above the picturesque patchwork valleys between Queenstown and Arrowtown.
Flights depart at dawn, so departure times vary depending on the time of year – as early as 5am in summer, or 8.30am in the winter months. But it will be a sunrise you’ll never forget.
