Alice Springs: Early Morning Hot Air Balloon Flight

1. Alice Springs: Early Morning Hot Air Balloon Flight

Your ballooning adventure begins in the cool pre-dawn darkness as you are picked up from your accommodation in Alice Springs. During the drive to the desert launch site you will get to know the crew as they make final weather checks and explain the routine for the morning. At the launch site gas burners are used to inflate the balloons just as the sun lights up the rugged MacDonnell Ranges. Once floating gently in the air you will appreciate the vast remoteness of the Australian outback. Wildlife, particularly big red kangaroos are seen nearly every day as the balloon floats above spinifex grasses, mulga scrub and cattle stations. After landing, enjoy a program designed to allow you a unique opportunity to experience the Australia bush. Most landings are in the desert, kilometers away from the nearest road. There is no traffic, no other people and no noise. The perfect place to enjoy a glass of sparkling Australian wine or if you prefer some tropical apple and guava juice. Perhaps mix the two for a delightful morning cocktail. Drinks are accompanied by a variety of muffins, biscuits, slices of cheese and fresh fruit. It's the perfect mix to enjoy before reboarding your bus to return to “town”.

I never gave the experience a thought until I was in the wicker basket with my husband and only daughter, then I realised what I had done!!! But the crew are amazing and they are pilots so they really know what they are doing. The noise from the gas coming on and off was probably the most stressful part. The history about hotair ballooning reassuring and champagne at the end settling. It was peaceful and tranquil. An opportunity not to be missed. No reqrets. Excellent value for the price when you think about the costs involved. Amazing service.

Amazing!!! Nathan was great, Jason the pilot was fantastic! John was brilliant and made me laugh The flight was breath taking, an absolutely awesome experience. Can not recommend this enough. Thank you Jason, Nathan and John
