YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 4 hours, with approx. 90 minutes spent in the air. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
Drifting over the dales and valleys, the farms, villages and miles of dry stone walls retain a centuries old charm in our modern age.
Our launch site near Rowsley is just a short distance from Chatsworth House and close to the River Derwent. Situated about halfway between Matlock and Bakewell, Rowsley is ideally located for those of you who may wish to enjoy a day in the Peak District.
Why not make your visit even more memorable by visiting Chatsworth House. The parkland, designed by 'Capability Brown' in the 1760's, is free to the public and open all year round.
Few can resist the attraction as one hundred feet of wispy nylon majestically rises with the dragon-like roar of the burners. As you take off you'll be more aware of the ground dropping away than of any sensation of movement or rising. The feeling of peace and tranquillity is heightened by the apparent lack of wind - because you're moving with it.
Once in the air, your balloon travels up to heights of several thousand feet, allowing you to gaze down upon villages, towns and the countryside. The 'miniature' people and cars scattered seemingly at random across the ground below look as if they've fallen from a toy box.
The supremely steady balloon basket provides an excellent vantage point for aerial photography. This un-missable opportunity to record your trip is heightened by the ability of the pilot to turn the balloon using the 'rotation vents' - thus providing you with a truly panoramic view as you float through the air.
You'll also have a good chance of spotting wildlife, particularly on morning flights. Views depend entirely on the wind direction on the day, which means every flight is a unique experience.
We round off every balloon flight with a champagne toast and a commemorative flight certificate presentation, making the occasion even more memorable and ensuring that the experience is one that will stay with you for years to come.
