Greet the hues of sunrise as you float peacefully in a hot air balloon over the picturesque Canterbury Plains. Stare in awe as the sun casts dreamy rays across the snow-peaked Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean, as well as the gorgeous patchwork paddocks and farmland below.
Prepare yourself for a blissful morning with a spectacular sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Canterbury Plains. After a courtesy transfer to the launch site, watch as your colourful ride comes to life during the balloon inflation, before jumping on board and rising slowly above the ground. Hold your breath as stunning vistas of the snow-covered Southern Alps to the Pacific Ocean come into view, illuminated by the dreamy colours of sunrise, as well as the region's famous patchwork landscape. Upon landing, enjoy a chilled glass of champagne and cheers to your unforgettable morning.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
