Around 15 mins late pick up. Thought we would rise before sunrise. But overall experience is great, and we had a fun time to collect the air balloon together

Everything Travel Group Review

This is something everyone has to do at least once in their lifetime! Ok, the 4.30am wake up call is a bit hard to handle (suggest not drinking the night before) and it's not the cheapest activity in town, but this was without doubt one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I don't think I'll ever see a sunrise like this again! We flew to 8000ft in a very gentle breeze for just over an hour over golf courses, lakes and picturesque farmland; throw in a tasty champagne breakfast and friendly and informative staff... wow...speechless!!

Suggestions: Due to its weather dependent nature (flies on average every other day) I'd suggest booking this for the beginning of your stay in Queenstown so that you can reschedule for another day if necessary. You're also best to book in advance as this is a very popular activity and there are limited spaces available.

Hi, I'm heading to queenstown with a friend tomorrow for a week, is the baloon sunrise operating at this time of year, unsure of where we are staying as yet.


Hi Kimberly,
The Sunrise Balloons are operating and it is a great trip to do in the Winter. Beautiful views everywhere.
We always suggest doing the Ballooning straight away as if there are weather issues, you will have time to re0schedule your trip for another day.
You can book this through our website and we will send you an e-ticket.

how long in advance must be start booking the balloon ride?


Hi Wei. The hot air ballooning is very popular in Queenstown so we recommend booking several weeks in advance if possible. Given it is very weather depenent it is also a good idea to book for one of your first days in Queenstown so that if the weather is no good for flying you can reschedule for another day. Alternatively you can email us for a full refund.

I wish to book a Hot Air Balloon ride for the 9th of July.
I was wondering if you still operate during winter, if so do you have place free for this date?
Thanks! =)


Hi Angela, yes Sunrise Balloons operate all year round, 7 days a week, weather permitting. Currently there is space available on the 9th July.

Hi, is 1st-8th Sept a good time/day to take flight?

Comment by: Wei on 19th Jun 12 at 14:47

Hi Wei, yes September is fine to take a flight with Sunrise Balloons in Queenstown. They operate all year round and in September it is starting to warm up a little and entering Spring making for some stunning views.

We are a family of 16 people, this group includes 1 child. What is the best if we want to go hot air ballooning? We will be in Queenstown between 23-29th Dec


Hi Pamela. The hot air ballooning in Queenstown has 2 balloons and baskets so they can fly 2 groups at the one time. The largest basket carries 14 passengers and the 2nd basket can carry up to 10 passengers. We could therefore split your family up into 2 balloons. The period between Christmas and New Year is the busiest time in Queenstown so we recommend booking your ballooning and any other activities well in advance.

Is it possible to charter a balloon and or is there a discount for 6 people?


Hi Andrew. It is possible to charter a balloon but the hot air balloons can hold up to 15 people and they are always fully booked so you would need to pay for 15 passengers to get a balloon to yourself. The cost is $6675. Alternatively, you can book 6 seats at $445 each and there will be other paying passengers on board. Unfortunately we are not permitted to discount this tour. We do recommend that your book for one of your first days in Queenstown so that if the weather is poor for flying you can reschedule to another day. If you do get cancelled and you can't reschedule you will of course receive a full refund from us.

can we bring along children under 5 yrs old

Comment by: Amy on 4th Feb 12 at 00:43

Hi Amy. Unfortunately children under 5 years old are not permitted to go ballooning in Queenstown for safety reasons. The reason for this is that they will be too short to see over the top of the basket and we don't want their parents lifting them up above the basket so they can see.
