The Balloon Company

specialises in organising bespoke hot air balloon flights for you and your guests. We take great pride in offering the very best private flights tailored to suit your occasion.

The whole experience from your initial enquiry through to the refreshment on landing is undertaken by Nick or Nigel, the owners and two of the most experienced pilots in the country. They are always on hand to take care of the detail and keep you fully informed with the weather prospects and arrangements for your flight. They will look after you throughout, flying you safely over the beautiful West Country landscape.

If you or your guests would like to go ballooning in a traditional, relaxed and fun way, give Nick a call.

Launch sites

You can fly from any of our own local launch sites in the Bristol, Bath, Chew Valley area or perhaps a little further south around the Mendips and across the Somerset levels to Taunton. Alternatively if there's a suitable site near you, the hotel lawn or local farmer's field why don't we come to you?

Scheduled Flights

Our associated company, First Flight, offers regular, local flights where you can join a small group of 8.
