  • Transport to and from the Methven centre
  • Post flight champagne-style celebration and snacks
  • Free inflight photographs
  • A four hour experience

Welcome a new day from the greatest vantage point - up in the clouds! You'll meet in Methven before first light and be transported to the protected launch site, nestled in the foothills of Mt Hutt. Before you know it, you'll be high above the ground, floating quietly and peacefully through the sky, with unlimited airspace restrictions up to 9,500ft. Painted by the colours of sunrise, you'll revel in unparalleled views across the Southern Alps reaching as far as Mount Cook, as well as views across the patchwork landscape of the Canterbury Plains. The second half of the flight takes place closer to the ground, giving you another spectacular perspective and the chance to spot wildlife. After a serene hour, you'll enjoy a celebratory drink on the landing field before being transported back to Methven.
