Get your camera ready to make incredible photos!

Once you are back on the ground, the team will deflate and pack up the balloon. Helping to pack the balloon away afterwards is also great fun! Then the vehicle will take you to the meeting point where you'll celebrate your flight with a glass of wine and a flight certificate, a valuable reminder of the once-in-a-lifetime experience you have just enjoyed.
