Adventure Balloons

Scenic Flights Hot Air Ballooning Adventure Activities
Adventure Balloons New Zealand is based just outside Christchurch offering a unique flight experience to remember.  

Balloon flights take place early morning, when the weather conditions are calm and stable, and ideal for balloon flights.  Meeting in Methven town centre, you will travel a short distance to one of the launch sites, which will be chosen to give you the very best flight experience depending on the weather conditions on the day.

Transport can also be arranged to and from Christchurch if required, please let us know when booking your flight.

You will be able to get involved and help our crew with setting the balloon up ready for flight and packing away afterwards.  The flight will last for around an hour, when you’ll enjoy the unique and very special experience of a hot air balloon flight flying at up to 6000ft, with superb long distance views across Canterbury Plains and the dramatic Southern Alps including Mount Cook and beyond, as well as the Rakaia Gorge, and its glacial river as it flows out towards the coast. 

After we’ve landed we’ll enjoy a celebratory drink before transporting you back to Methven.

Chief Pilot Graeme Church has many hours hot air balloon experience flying in New Zealand, the UK and other parts of Europe, including Alpine Flying as well as a flight across the English Channel! Graeme also holds a fixed wing aeroplane licence.
