Autumn is an amazing time to take a hot air balloon flight. Not only can you see the trees change colour from above, but it is a great way to spend time with the whole family before it gets too cold!

There's something about being up in the sky, surrounded by the vibrant colours of autumn foliage, that makes the adventure a truly magical and memorable experience.

We might have a slight bias towards the trees turning red as it matches our beautiful red balloons!

After your flight, enjoy a post-landing toast at the landing site with a choice between prosecco or orange juice.
