Hot air balloon rides - Scotland & Northumberland
Now celebrating 15 Years of Operations
|SEE OUR 2014/5
Alba Ballooning offers hot air balloon rides near Scotland's capital city of Edinburgh and its surrounding picturesque Lothian and Peeblesshire countryside, over the scenic area of Perth & Kinrosshire and Fife, over the history laden Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders and also over beautiful Northumberland from near Morpeth.
We schedule daily flights (evenings and most mornings) between mid-March to late-October and occasionally fly in the winter period. Flights typically last around one hour and the whole trip 3 to 4 hours. We currently operate any of our three balloons which have baskets to accommodate up to 6, 9 or 12 passengers in 2 or 3 person compartments which are comfortably padded and safely high sided. We particularly pride ourselves on giving a consistently personal, local and professional service as our customer feedback testifies.
All flights are of course weather dependent so some perseverance is generally required - but we aim to make the reward worth any wait! Why should you choose to fly with us? Unlike many companies, we won't fly you in a 16 passenger 'bus' balloon and neither do we oversell far more places than we can ever possibly fly - everyone has plenty of opportunity to fly quickly after booking with us - and we display our Flight Schedules online (unlike any competitor) for you to see before you buy so there are no unpleasant surprises with us!
You can see the numerous flights we achieve on our In flight Photos page. On each flight, we choose to use a launch site that best suits the wind direction so we don't cut your hour flight short due to the flight direction being unsuitable. All our flight vouchers are part refundable and we give you the option to renew them if you haven't flown by the time they expire. Quality and ethical service has always been paramount for us as our Customer Feedback testifies. Since starting in 2000, we have made over 1000 safe flights (see our 1000th flight blog), flying over 8600 satisfied passengers to date.
If you want a quality of customer service with a personal touch, do book with us!
