Windermere Weekday Morning Balloon Flight

Let the morning breeze guide you over some of the UK's most spectacular landscape, with an unforgettable balloon ride over the Lake District!

Ballooning Over Windermere

champagne weekday morning hot air balloon ride

Glorious. Stunning. Awesome. And simply unforgettable…

Relaxing roughly the same distance between the open reach of Morecambe Bay and the long expanse of water that is Lake Windermere, this perfect Lake District balloon launch location will open some of the region’s best views!

Sail on the wind as your balloon climbs high over the ever changing Lake District landscapes. One moment the breeze edging you closer to the lakes that shimmer in the near distance, the next presenting views of dramatic fells, sharp hills and wild, windswept vistas that combine to create the magical lakes region of beautiful Cumbria. We’re not sure there could be a better place to go ballooning, so take to the skies to (literally) see what we mean!

Wherever your ballooning journey travels, you will have the experience of a lifetime. So be sure to bring a camera so you can share those epic views with family and friends. Once back on the ground, your support crew will meet you and return you to the Derby Arms, where you can relive the moment over some real ale hearty meals!
