Queenstown Sunrise Balloon

Soar in the skies and overlook the valleys between Queenstown and Arrowtown, with magnificent views of the unique terrain.

As we rise to altitudes as high as 6,000ft and drift with the breeze, you will witness quite possibly the best panoramic views of Queenstown and its surrounds - “The Hobbit” filming locations, Southern Alps, Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables mountain range, NZ’s finest golf courses and much more. Our four distinct seasons offer beautiful scenery all year round, so make this your opportunity to get some of the most stunning photographs you will ever take.
