Hamilton offers several exciting tour destinations and adventures, among which is sightseeing the city on a hot air balloon. It’s an exhilarating experience to have an unobstructed view of the whole place and looking down on life below. Every visitor to Hamilton should try this.
Perhaps, one of the most exciting adventures you could do in Hamilton is to ride the wind – literally – on a hot air balloon. An hour-long flight above Hamilton and Waikato is more than worth the money you pay for it. And getting up very early in the morning is a pleasant challenge.
Yes, a hot air balloon ride is done just before sunrise, while the rest of the community are still in the comfort of their beds or have just woken up. The crisp morning breeze is superb. And perhaps, there is nothing more wonderful than watching the sun gradually comes out from the horizon.
Flying over the North Island gives you a magnificent view of the lush vineyards, pasturelands of the Waikato, forests, the local crops, lakes, rivers, mountain ranges, roads, and the communities. And if you’re fortunate to fly on a clear day, you’ll have a bonus view of the snow-capped mountains of the distant Tongariro National Park.
And if you are keen about reflecting over the things you see, you’ll stand in awe at the marvelous deeds of the Creator.
Ideal for honeymooners as well as families
A hot air balloon ride is ideal for honeymooners, lovers, as well as for families and groups. There are just certain qualifications, however, on who should go up on a hot air balloon ride for safety reasons.
- kids below 8 years old are not allowed to ride
- children below 12 years should be under parental guidance
- fourteen-week pregnant women are not allowed to fly
The hot air balloon adventure is available daily from September to June. However, since it is weather-dependent, you may not be able to take the flight on your preferred schedule. But you need not worry because your hot air ballooning team is always ready to coordinate with you on the matter.
