Canterbury's geography and climate are ideal for ballooning and provide a unique situation where passengers can experience a rare view of Canterbury's landscape from a gently floating hot air balloon. Balloon Adventures Up Up and Away Limited operates six of the largest and most advanced balloons in the country.
Watch as the parks, rivers and buildings fade into the distance, making way for the patchwork farmland of the Canterbury Plains, in view of the Southern Alps to the west and the endless blue of the ocean to the east.
Ballooning is suitable for a variety of people, making it possible for families with children over the age of five to have an adventure together within a safe environment. Taking off at sunrise allows you to enjoy the beginning of your day in an original and memorable way and still be able to fit in the rest of your busy itinerary.
