Around 4 hours in total. The flight departs early in the morning around sunrise. Part of your balloon experience will be to help inflate the balloon which is considered by many people to be huge fun. The flight itself will take up to an hour with the total time in the air being dictated by the wind directions and potential landing sites.
The next part involves helping to deflate the balloon and travel back to base where you will enjoy a traditional bubbly (we can’t call it Champagne anymore!) and nibbles.
