Balloon Flight Over Windermere

champagne weekday anytime hot air balloon ride

Timeless. Striking. Epic. And simply unforgettable…

Commence your ballooning adventure at the Derby Arms Hotel in Witherslack, perfectly located between Lake Windermere and Morecambe Bay. Possibly the finest setting for a balloon ride in the country!

With the breeze as your guide your balloon will climb high over this incredible landscape of brooding fells, rolling fields and hills and shimmering water near and far. Every flight is different, but the beauty that opens up before you is always magical. Will you drift ever closer to Lake Windermere, the largest lake in the UK, or take in its expanse from slightly further afield, as you drift northwards to the rugged Whitbarrow National Nature Reserve – only the wind can make that decision and you’ll find its freedom infectious!

Wherever your balloon flight takes you it will create memories that last a lifetime. So be sure to bring a camera so you can share those memory making views with others. Upon landing, your ground support crew will collect you and return you to the Derby Arms, where you can relive the moment over some real ale and hearty meals!
