Exclusive hot air balloon rides in the South West
Fly Away Ballooning offers morning and evening hot air balloon rides with a maximum of 4 guests. With our exclusive flights you have the balloon to yourselves – and the pilot of course! We have partnered with The Bath Distillery and you will be flown in our beautiful new balloon. All our flights come with a complimentary gin and tonic. You will be flying with Hugo, one of only a few third-generation balloon pilots flying in the world today with family heritage stretching back to the dawn of hot air ballooning in the United Kingdom.
We have specially selected Somerset launch sites in Taunton, South Petherton, Wiveliscombe and Langport. We also fly from Bristol and Bath. Please see our voucher options here: https://www.flyawayballooning.com/book-tickets.
After you have purchased your voucher you will receive an email with all the information you need to prepare for your flight. We operate between March and November.
Generally, anyone can partake in hot air ballooning. It is serene, quiet and slow and the whole experience lasts for 3 – 4 hours. Once you meet at your pre-arranged launch site you will meet Hugo and his ground crew. Hugo will at this point talk you through a pre flight safety briefing and answer any questions you may have.
We invite all our passengers to help get involved and to experience what it is to be a balloonist. Participation is of course optional. After your balloon ride we will take you back to the original meeting location, usually the launch site.
Our meeting location depends on the weather on the day of flight. This is just our registered office.
