About Windward Balloon Adventures
Windward Balloon Adventures offers guests the enchanting experience of a deluxe sunrise balloon flight over the picturesque Avon Valley! Your adventure begins just before sunrise in the departure lounge of the Windward ballooning hangar at the Northam Airfield. Once aboard the balloon, your pilot will run through vital in-flight Information including balloon safety and the importance of ballast! We wait a few moments for some final happy snaps and a quick wave to the ground crew before the balloon is released and we drift gently towards the clouds. Once aloft enjoy the spectacle of seeing the first signs of dawn shed light over the Avon Valley, a glorious patchwork of colours. Drifting over the valley for up to an hour allows you plenty of time to take in the panoramic views of this rural landscape with its rolling hills, lush green fields and meandering streams. Celebrate in style with champagne and breakfast after your flight.

Out of this world ❤️ Arranged this magical experience for my partners birthday although I am not great with heights I could not believe I had no fear or nerves at all, the scenery takes over. It was absolutely amazing. Truly exceeded our expectations. If your looking to tick this one off your bucket list Windward Balloon Company certainly over delivers. The overall experience was out of this world. From the breathtaking balloon trip to the beautiful Champagne Breakfast. Thank you to Sven for making this such a wonderful memorable experience. We would certainly come back and do this all over again. Highly Recommend Windward Balloon Company. Thank you from Caroline and Tony for this incredible experience.

Fabulous experience and good excellent service! The safety aspect, great client service and our friendly and very experienced pilot Sven made this an unforgettable experience! Windward offer the chance to see life from 5,000 feet in the air!! You can help set up the massive balloon and watch it come to life along with commentary by Sven or silence I’d highly recommend the company in every aspect! 😀

After rising very early we we given flying instructions and helped in preparation of the balloon for flight. Up up and away WOW 4 of our 7 group have various degrees of vertigo, and we all had a great time! No problems. Sven our pilot was knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you Sven. Then after all the excitement of the flight we were driven for a lovely champagne breakfast. Icing on the cake. What a fantastic morning so worth it!

My wife and I went out on a balloon trip with the Windward Team in April 2021. It really was a great experience. From the early morning meet-up at the Northam airfield to the drive to the take off site, safety brief, flight, landing and champagne breakfast in town it was excellent. Sven was our pilot. He was very knowledgeable about the local landscape, was an expert pilot and very thorough in his work. We would highly recommend.
