Durham Ballooning

Durham Hot Air Ballooning

Durham Hot Air Balloon Rides

Brimming to the edges with culture, characters and countryside, a hot air balloon flight over the Durham region will ignite the senses and create memories that simply last a lifetime.

With moorland and dales that sparkle with colour in the sun, and brood silently under cloud, balanced against patchwork fields and bustling towns, County Durham offers unforgettable views with every new direction that the breeze takes you. This truly is hot air ballooning at its best.

Durham Ballooning Options:

Virgin Balloon Flights Durham
Flexible bookings, champagne toasts, the option to assist them in inflating and deflating the balloon and a luxury gift voucher are just a few reasons to consider Virgin. And the best bit? Despite being a large company, each flight is intimate and made to feel special just for you…

Whether you’re arranging a flight for yourself or as a gift, buying a gift certificate can add a layer of security. Unfortunately a lot of balloon operators are finding things financially difficult and some do not last. However, if you’ve bought a voucher then they are exchangeable and in many instances refundable. We think they’re a really smart option.

Durham and Local Attractions

Whether its a short break or a couple of weeks, Durham has so much to offer visitors to this fantastic region. Pay a visit to the Bowes Museum and its 230 year old musical swan, or the Cathedral and Castle, which became one of the first ever World Heritage Sites (at the same time at the Taj Mahal and the Palace of Versailles).

If you fancy a bit of amateur dramatics, The Assembly Rooms stage performances of the local university students. Home to mustard, you’ll find a wide variety of places to eat and drink from traditional coaching inns to designer restaurants – which sums up Durham nicely: a perfect blend of past and present, with an eye on the future.

Surrender to the romance of it all…

Even if you’re a local, why not make the most of an unforgettable day by relaxing that evening on a romantic getaway. Let someone else do the cooking and the washing up. Instead, recline back into the afterglow of a hot air ballooning experience that sets the mood quite like nothing else…

Our favourite post ballooning idea: an intimate and charming guesthouse & a bottle or two of fine wine.
