Hot Air Balloon Festival
Fly at Europe’s largest hot air balloon festival on the 10th – 13th August and watch over 100 balloons take to the skies for the famous mass ascents.
2017 will be the Fiesta’s 39th year – the popular event is the UK’s most famous hot air balloon festival attracting approximately 500,000 visitors.
The fiesta continues to grow year on year with people traveling far and wide to see hot air balloons of spectacular shapes and sizes from all over the world.
At this year’s Fiesta, we made history by taking two of our beautiful big red balloons.
Fly Virgin at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta
A hot air balloon ride at Bristol Balloon Fiesta is a once-in-a-lifetime experience in its own right.*
As well as our usual 3 – 4 hour adventure in the skies over the beautiful Somerset landscapes, you’ll also get to see the dozens of other balloons floating beside you as you take to the skies over the spiritual home of hot air ballooning in the UK.
Reach incredible heights and fly over famous sites like the Clifton Suspension Bridge before landing wherever the wind has taken you and celebrating with a traditional Champagne toast.
See you in the Somerset skies!
