Cider and Cheese Hot Air Balloon & Countryside Tour


Renowned as “Idyllic England,” the stunning beauty of Britain can be fully appreciated from the sky. Our exclusive “Cider & Cheese” Hot Air Balloon provides the perfect vantage point to admire the breathtaking landscapes, from rolling countryside and picturesque woodlands to charming historic towns. Whether you choose to fly at sunrise or sunset, these unforgettable views will leave you yearning for more.

In addition to soaring to new heights in a comfortable, hand-woven wicker basket for approximately an hour, you will also have the opportunity to assist with the inflation and deflation of the balloon. This hands-on experience offers a fascinating insight into the mechanics of ballooning. After the flight, upon landing, indulge in a delectable selection of local cheeses and apple ciders to truly savor the essence of the Somerset region.

We offer this exclusive experience at various start locations, each combined with a picturesque tour of the surrounding countryside beforehand. For those starting in Bath and Bristol, your hot air balloon ride will provide stunning vistas of Brunel’s incredible suspension bridge, the striking architecture of Bath’s Georgian stone buildings, and the serene lakes of the Chew Valley. You’ll also admire panoramic views that extend to the Welsh mountains, the Westbury White Horse, and the apple orchards of Somerset. Meanwhile, if you start in North Somerset, you can expect to witness the mesmerizing sights of the famed Cheddar Gorge, the majestic Glastonbury Tor, and the dynamic wildlife of the Somerset levels.
