Exclusive & Romantic Balloon Trips for Two

Exclusive & Romantic Balloon Trips for Two

If you’re looking for the ultimate in ballooning  these hot air balloon rides for two are just the ticket as you will enjoy an exclusive flight in a balloon just for the two you. Surely there can be nothing more romantic than that?

Maybe you’re thinking of popping the big question perhaps you have a very special anniversary to celebrate or you want to club together to send a couple you love on a superb flight in a hot air balloon? Whatever the occasion it’s sure to be a case of love in the air as the two of you float gracefully in the skies.

Flights take place in the mornings during the week. Expect an early start though as sunrise is the best time to catch the optimal meteorological conditions but don’t worry your bleary early morning eyes will soon be wide open at the incredible views you’ll enjoy from the basket of your hot air balloon.  The two of you will be amazed by the silence of the flight. Yes the burners are hot and loud but most of the time you are in a mesmerising silence – ideal if you’ve got something important to say!

Look over the edge of the hot air basket if you dare (during these rides you’ll be anything up to 3000ft off the ground after all!) and you lucky two will be able to see the mist giving way to the morning sunshine witnessing the world waking up whilst you drift slowly and surely by. It’s almost a dreamlike floatation with a feeling of weightlessness. It’s all very stable too as you’re moving with the air so there’s no sensation of wind. Hear the birdsong listen to dogs barking and even make out the voices from people below.  Everyone loves spotting a hot air balloon in flight so you two can expect plenty of waves as you float past!

With a pilot and just two people on the passenger list these hot air balloon rides are truly superb. Intimate and romantic thrilling and breathtaking there can really be no better way to celebrate. Just imagine the look on the faces of your loved ones if you’ve organised this as a surprise. Imagine turning up on the morning of the flight and watching their faces as the reality of what they are about to do unfolds.  

Once you’ve got over the initial surprise you are sure to want to assist with the inflating the balloon which in itself is pretty impressive. The feather-light fabric billows with the force of the air and slowly but surely the balloon starts to take shape. With the basket standing upright it’s time to hop in. Take your beloved by the hand and climb in. On our hot air balloon rides for two you will be in the sky for around an hour and on landing the bubbly is opened and friends and family are sure to be waiting to help you lucky pair celebrate your fabulous hot air balloon experience. Into the Blue also offers alternative hot air balloon rides from UK-wide balloon launch sites.

Weekday Hot Air Balloon Flights

Weekday Hot Air Balloon Flights

Float away over the lovely countryside with these best value weekday ballon flights! If you can make it on a mid-week date you’ll enjoy a fabulous hot air ballon flight for less. You get all the views all the fun and all the adventure without paying extra for going on a weekend.

We are offering these mid-week hot air ballon flights from take off venues the length and breadth of the UK. There are around 100 of them so no matter where you are in the country there’ll be a balloon site somewhere near you. 

Flights are very much weather dependent but everyone agrees ballooning is well worth the wait. With these weekday flights balloons generally take off early in the morning and late in the afternoon as these periods typically offer the most clement weather conditions – and the best light in our opinion!

You’ll be joined in the basket by up to 15 other passengers all eager to enjoy the sensations of ballon flight with you. Your pilot will be an expert balloonist who not only knows the workings of a balloon inside out they are also very knowledgeable on the places you’ll be flying over and excellent at putting nervous first-timers at ease. Even those who aren’t keen on heights will enjoy the chance to get airborne in a hot air balloon. Indeed it’s such a different sensation to anything else.

What’s more you can be as hands-on or hands-off as you like but most guests love getting involved at the start of their experience helping the pilot and ground crew inflate the balloon. And after a calm and serene flight prepare for some fun as you seek out a landing spot which could be in a stubbly field or a pasture recently vacated by cattle! It’s all very much part of the experience.

Having helped pack up the balloon you’ll be taken back to your original take off spot. With lots of thanks spoken and goodbyes all done you’ll head off with a huge smile on your face. Time to reflect on the day you made the very most of your weekday balloon flight ‘stepping off the Earth for a while to see the world from a different perspective’ as balloonists say!

Weekday Sunrise Deals

Weekday Sunrise Deals

Looking for hot air balloon deals? The key to getting the best discount deals on hot air balloon rides is when you go. If you can make a weekday early morning launch date you can get a hot air balloon ride at rock bottom prices. We have a handpicked selection of sites offering sunrise rides in a hot air balloon for just £129 per person.

These great value deals do mean that you have to be available in the mornings during the week to fly. And we’ll be honest it’s often a patience game with hot air ballooning as rides need optimal weather conditions to operate – but it is SO worth it when you do get airborne. Let’s tell you more about these discounted rides in hot air balloons…

A meeting time at the launch site of something like 6am might seem harsh but this is honestly the best time of the day to ride in a hot air balloon. Nothing can beat a graceful ascension over the countryside as the sun comes up. It’s so quiet so tranquil and a real privilege to witness the world waking up from your aerial view in the basket.

The deal with these rides is that as you and your fellow passengers gather the hot air balloon crew starts the inflation process. You’re very welcome to watch and take photos or you can actually join in and lend a hand as the pilot blasts the warm air into the canopy. Plenty of hands are needed to unfold the balloon and help tether it until the basket rights itself (as it starts on it’s side).

Once all passengers are onboard and ready it’s time for the ride to begin. As the balloon is released it’s a slow gentle and serene take off. It has been said ballooning is not to be rushed and you’d have to agree. It’s all about peacefully floating along taking in the stunning views as you go. As away you go for around an hour’s flying in your hot air balloon the first thing nearly every passenger comments on is how green the countryside below looks.

Remember to benefit from these hot air balloon deals you need to fly during the week at sunrise. The hot air ballooning season generally runs from April to October/November time and slots always book up fast so as soon as you’ve received your discounted hot air balloon voucher make sure you arrange a date to fly.

Hot Air Balloon Flights

Hot Air Balloon Flights

Into the Blue unrestricted hot air balloon flights are offered in partnership with Balloons Over Britain; a name synonymous with adventure and flight who have over 70 balloon launch sites across the UK.

The hot air ballooning vouchers on this page offer the maximum flexibility and convenience being valid for dawn and dusk flights throughout the week including weekends making the perfect present for someone you love. Into the Blue also offers sunrise balloon trips which present excellent value for money.

The experience starts with a passenger greeting followed by the inflation of the balloon. This is great fun to watch with passengers and spectators often invited to join in whilst cold air is blown into the balloon and then heated. Just before climbing into the basket it’s time for the pilot briefing and once everyone is settled (and with cameras at the ready) it’s time for take off.

Gently with the hot air lifting the balloon off the ground you’ll will drift skywards and  as you watch the ground slowly drop away friends and family down below soon look like little ant-sized people. Your familiar towns become toy towns and the rolling countryside becomes a glorious patchwork quilt of seasonal colours as you climb to an altitude of up to 3 000ft.

You will be airborne in the balloon for about an hour depending on weather conditions and  yes it is true that the pilot never really knows precisely where you will land – but fear not the ground crew are in radio contact with the pilot and follow the balloon to the safe landing spot! The pilot can control altitude by using the gas burner to control the temperature of the hot air in the balloon and often a change of height can result in a change of direction. Essentially you are being carried by the wind like a dandelion seed!

Once landed the ground crew will meet you and there’s a champagne toast to celebrate your adventure whilst the balloon is being deflated. Your experience ends with the presentation of a commemorative certificate signed by your pilot before being transported back to the launch site. Make your special day extra special with a gift experience from IntotheBlue.co.uk
