Rise above the sleepy Waikato region during this sunrise hot air balloon flight. Breathe in the still, crisp early morning air as you gently float over Hamilton and drift out to the green pastures of Waikato. Soak up the beautiful scenery from your peak altitude then enjoy a bubbly back on ground.
Your magical morning begins before first light, when you'll meet the crew just before sunrise to help with the balloon inflation. Before you know it, you'll be gently floating with the morning breeze above Hamilton and over the green expanses of Waikato. On a clear day, you'll be able to see the distant snow-capped mountains of Tongariro National Park. The scenery and stillness of it all will take your breath away and after about an hour of tranquility, you drift back down to earth for refreshments and bubbly.
Please note this experience operates from September to June only.
Not suitable for anyone who is more than 14 weeks pregnant.
Please wear sturdy footwear and comfortable clothing.
The modern equipment is under regular Civil Aviation Authority operational inspection.
This experience takes place in Hamilton.
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.
