Hot Air Ballooning

Fly Away Ballooning offer a unique experience to view the landscape from a different perspective. You can see in 360 degrees for miles on end, and your flight feels absolutely uninhibited and free. As the landscape shrinks into miniature, a model world appears below.

On arrival you will have the opportunity to help assemble the balloon and lay it out ready for the cold inflation. You will see your balloon take shape before your pilot will take to the controls as hot air is pumped into the balloon and it rises standing at some 90ft tall. 

As you drift along at the same speed as the wind it is quite common to see an array of wildlife – from deer skipping through the tall crops to birds of prey swooping from the trees. As the balloon ascends to higher altitudes, the rolling hills that surround you transform into a flat green canvas below your feet which stretches out to the horizon and meets the sea.
