  • Take off on an unforgettable hot air balloon flight
  • Soar over the outback as the sun rises over the MacDonnell Ranges
  • Return transfers from Alice Springs to the launch site included

Flying over the Great Australian Outback in a hot air balloon is an adventure you absolutely need to tick off your bucket list. With return transfers from Alice Springs, you'll witness the incredible effort that goes into getting a hot air balloon off the ground, and float high above the Red Centre for half an hour as the sun rises over the MacDonnell Ranges and surrounds.

Journey to the launch site in the cool pre dawn darkness and feel the anticipation build as the balloon gradually inflates. Climb into the basket and get ready for the unbeatable feeling of take off as the flames carry you into the sky. For about half an hour you'll soar over the outback as the sun rises over vast expanse of the Australian desert all around you. Keep an eye out for native wildlife - including the iconic red kangaroo - as you take in the remoteness of the landscape below.

After landing, you can get involved in assisting the crew as they pack the nylon balloon back into its bag if you're up for it, or you can stand back and watch the process. At the ballooning landing site, you can enjoy the desert tranquility as you're treated to light refreshments and snacks, still buzzing from your post-ballooning adrenaline high.
