Tour ID: 10000070

Take off at dawn and witness the sunrise over the Hunter Valley as you float gently over the picturesque landscape.
Sunrise flights are held daily all year round. We meet one hour before dawn at Petersons Champagne House in Pokolbin . This is usually when the air is stable and the winds are calm, ensuring a tranquil flight.

After a cup of coffee or tea and a flight briefing, passengers are transported to the chosen launch site for the day. Launch sites are dotted around the vineyards, assuring you of a wonderful view no matter which direction the wind is coming from. The views are breathtaking and you can see how vast the Hunter Valley is once aloft.

The balloon is inflated and the passengers get in. The balloon lifts off the ground effortlessly and the wonderful experience begins. At the final landing point, the retrieve crew assist in packing up the envelope and basket, and everyone is returned to meeting at Petersons Champagne House in Pokolbin for a champagne breakfast.

You will receive a flight certificate to commemorate the morning with our compliments.
