It seems no one who has experienced a ride is here to comment.

I do know there is one in Queenstown http://www.ballooningnz.com/

Perhaps you can Google for other options and make a decision based on the result.

Once you have had a ride why not return here and leave a review for future enthusiasts?

Best of luck :)

I am coming travelling to South Island this Fri for 2 wks. can anyone tell me how is the weather at there?

initially I book Up Up & Away, but it was closed till mid Nov. Now I hope to hop onto Safaris hot air balloon at Ashburton. Hope that the weather is in favour to me.

I will report to all if I successfully hop on to it.

The weather in NZ is very regionalised with places only a few kms from each other having totally different weather.... Nelson today has been hot with gusty winds.

Ashburton is www.metservice.com/towns-cities/ashburton

Best of luck !

and please return afterwards and leave a report :)

We helped to set the balloon 6am and wait for the wind to be lesser. we are unlucky, waited until 8am and the wind is still strong, didn't get to go up. We help to pack up. Michael, the pilot was great and he had explained "safety 1st". Overall, I had experienced in setting up and packing the balloon. We booked fr Ballooning Canterbury. www.ballooningcanterbury.co.nz

Sorry to hear you didn't get up.

And it's another stunning day here in sunny Nelson - deep blue skies and only the softest, occassional breeze.
