Take to the skies this summer with Bristol Balloons

Posted on: 15 May 2018

Ever seen a hot air balloon gliding over the city and thought I wonder what those views are like. Well wonder no more - this Summer is as good a chance as any to see Bristol like never before on a ride with Bristol Balloons. With a huge variety of packages on offer, from sunrise journeys to serene weekday afternoon flights, you can find the perfect one to suit you and celebrate - or just treat yourself - in style.

One of many incredible views of Bristol available via hot air balloon.

It's not uncommon on a clear day to see more than a few hot air balloons on the Bristol skyline, and with good reason - the picturesque city offers breathtaking views to those lucky enough to experience a ride. Bristol Balloons has been organising passenger flights since 1978, working tirelessly in the time since to put together as many bespoke packages as possible and making balloon rides accessible to all.


Bristol Balloons' longest-running and most popular package is the Classic Champagne Flight - an offer valid any day of the week (subject to weather conditions), between the regular flying season of March to October. Exclusive private flight packages are also available, with an in-flight photograph included in the price to document your experience.


Of course, Bristol's annual Balloon Fiesta is also back in 2018, running from 9th-12th August. Taking place at Ashton Court Estate, the event sees over 100 hot air balloons take to the skies of Bristol. It draws crowds of thousands every year, a firm favourite among locals and visitors alike. Bristol Balloons are now offering tailored Balloon Fiesta packages through their website - click here to find out more.
