About

For miles of unspoilt countryside, choose one of our fabulous Somerset hot air balloon rides.

Enjoy this stunning county from on high as you drift serenely through the sky in our beautiful big red balloon.

Take life higher on a wonderful balloon ride from Taunton and experience a truly unforgettable airborne adventure.

The town sits in the spectacular Vale of Taunton Deane, between the Quantock and Blackdown Hills.

Each Taunton hot air balloon ride is unique, as you float majestically wherever the wind takes you.

You may drift over beautiful Vivary Park or the 1,300-year-old Taunton Castle, head north towards Hestercombe House.

Whichever way the wind takes you, on our Somerset hot air balloon rides you’ll find some of the most quintessentially English countryside passing below the basket.
