A hot air balloon ride is the perfect way to celebrate those special occasions and an activity that features on nearly everyone's bucket list.
We now offer shared hot air balloon rides from Taunton & South Somerset, Bath & North East Somerset and Exeter & Tiverton. Private experiences are available throughout the south west.
Whatever the occasion join us for a truly unique and memorable balloon experience. Whether you wish to balloon over Devon and explore mother natures playground, drift gently over the UK's only city to be designated a UNESCO world heritage site or lose yourself in the stunning countryside that surrounds Taunton take flight with Fly Away Ballooning.
Allow us to take you on your own adventure and share this unique experience with your partner, friends or family.
Your flight will have a maximum of 8 people so it will feel personal and comfortable compared to other operators that squish you in large baskets amongst 16 others.
The whole experience lasts 3-4 hours and will begin from one of our chosen sites in your preferred area. The launch site is chosen the day before depending on the wind speed and direction to provide you with the longest, safest and most enjoyable flight.
Feel free to get stuck in and help with the set up and inflation or stand back and watch as the hot air balloon takes shape. Once it's time to hop into the basket, many of our passengers are surprised by the relaxing sensation of taking off. You will drift into the sky and move with the wind, creating almost stillness in the balloon as you match the wind speed.
A balloon flight is incomparable to any other form of flying. Its slow and serene nature with panoramic views in the open air makes it totally unique. Whether it's drifting over the rolling hills, picturesque valleys and timeless countryside of Somerset & Devon or rising above England's finest Georgian city and exploring Bath from the unique vantage point of a sport that has defied time and technology like the city below. Your own experience will be spectacular and memorable in its own way.
You will be in the air for around an hour, a wonderful time to relax, enjoy the views, take photos and live the experience. Morning and evening flights are equally magical and we have a selection of complimentary tipples to top it off.
Whether you live in the south west and want to see your local area from a new perspective or perhaps you are visiting the area on holiday, joining Fly Away Ballooning on one of our balloon rides is a memorable activity to last a lifetime.
Our shared flights are available morning and evenings, weekdays and weekends from April-October. Live availability is shown on our website. Please bear in mind as with all hot air balloon rides they are entirely weather dependent.
