So where better to take to the skies in a hot air balloon, than from one of England’s highest towns – Shaftesbury. This historic town sits atop Blackmore Vale and the River Stour Basin, which both unfold below you as you drift effortlessly overhead.
With the breeze as you guide, float over a mosaic of patchwork fields, thick woods and snaking laneways that lead to quaint villages and bustling market towns. With so much visual reward to be hard, you’ll find that your ballooning experience gifts you memories that are simply unforgettable.
A balloon flight is unlike other forms of flying; your visibility is through 360 degrees and your flight feels uninhibited. A model world appears below, familiar landmarks take on new perspectives, whether you are close to the ground viewing wildlife, or up amongst the clouds marvelling at their powdery appearance, you will be intrigued by this aerial mystery tour.
A Hot Air Balloon moves with the wind direction and whatever the wind speed you feel no movement or breeze, plus you have the radiant heat from the burners; even in mid-winter you are far warmer in the air than on the ground. Binoculars, video or camera are a must. Bring plenty of film.
