Hot air ballooning is minimum number and weather dependant. We recommend that you book near the start of your stay in Canterbury so that if we need to cancel the flight for any reason you have the chance to re-book on another day. If we cancel the flight, you can either rebook to another day (subject to space being available) or get a full refund.

For full Cancellation Policy please see below.

Ballooning is suitable for all sorts of people.

We have no upper age limit but ballooning is an outdoor sport requiring a degree of agility. We recommend that people should be fit enough to climb in and out of the basket and to stand for about an hour.

If you are a first time flyer or are slightly nervous, don’t worry – we will look after you. We want you to have the most fun and enjoyable experience possible.

We use partitioned baskets specially designed to ensure safety, comfort and a superb view.

Weight restrictions:

Because a hot air balloon is a lighter-than-air aircraft, it is limited to the total number of kilograms it can lift. Weight limitations vary according to the outside temperature, humidity, and the number and total weight of the passengers and pilot on board. It is extremely important for flight planning that we have accurate weights, it is a legal requirement that each person must be weighed before the flight.

Please note the maximum weight for each passenger is 130 kg. If you are heavier than this please contact us directly to discuss the options to accommodate you.


Children are welcome and must be accompanied by a paying & consenting adult. The child must be able to see over the edge of the basket. Their height must be a minimum of 1.1 m high. Infants are not permitted. A child is aged 12 years and under.

Cancellation Policy:

If you cancel within 24 hours of the flight you forfeit the full fare. If your cancellation is due to having a new medical condition which raises concerns about completing the flight safely and comfortably, or which poses a risk to other passengers, we will consider a refund upon presentation of a medical certificate. Cancellation must be made directly with Ballooning Canterbury.

A $100 per person cancellation fee applies if you cancel with 48 hours for small groups or within 7 days of flight for large groups.

If we cancel the flight due to weather, for safety reasons or not meeting the minimum number requirement, a full refund will be given or you can change your booking to another date if space is available. (Conditions apply to flights booked via a voucher).
