What you'll do

See Bristol like never before by floating over in a hot air balloon. Choose if you would like to start or end your day with a hot air balloon flight at either sunrise or sunset, and celebrate with a glass of Champagne afterwards.

Help the pilot and crew set up the balloon ready for the flight, you'll then receive a full safety briefing before the balloon is inflated. You can then hop in the basket and take off from Ashton Court Estate - home of the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta - and start to take in the views immediately. Get the chance to see the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the S.S. Great Britain, and the busy City Centre.

Please note that hot air ballooning is extremely weather dependent and will require perfect conditions to take place. We have other launch sites that we will use if the wind direction is not suitable to launch from Ashton Court - full details will be provided where this will be. The time that we meet will vary throughout the year due to the days getting longer and shorter, 6am and 6pm is a rough indication but you will be fully informed of the meeting time.

Our balloon takes no more than 5 passengers so you can guarantee a personal service with us.

What people are saying

This was just simply superb. Phil and Ian were great fun and excellent throughout. Would highly recommend Phil for your ballooning adventure

Mike Wilson, Apr 2022

I would recommend a Sky High Ballooning to anyone . The Ballon ride is really a great experience from the minute you arrive helping with the inflation of the balloon to the breath taking views and then when landing helping to pack the balloon away followed by a champagne toast. To anyone thinking of doing it , go for it you really will love it, Phil and Chris made you feel completely at ease and are very professional. Thank you for a great experience. Cant wait to try again one day soon.
