Sunrise Balloons is based in Queenstown, New Zealand, flights are scheduled daily, all year round, weather permitting. Queenstown is quite possibly the best landscape in the world to view, and it's even better during a hot air balloon ride followed by a champagne celebration. Come and experience Hot Air Ballooning with us!
