Overview

As you drift around the Usk Valley with a glass of Champagne in hand, you’ll enjoy impressive views during a dawn or dusk flight. Help the crew, if you wish, and make use of a transfer back to the starting point when you land. The full experience includes the balloon preparation and a safety talk.

Llanarth Village Hall, Groesonen Rd, Llanarth, NP15 2AU, UK, Clytha, Usk NP15 2AZ, UK

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Select an early morning or evening flight when you book. Your confirmed start time is given after you book.

Head to Llanarth’s village hall on the day of your balloon flight, and meet the pilot and crew. If the weather is good, and you want to get involved, help the crew to set up your 16-man hot air balloon. After a safety talk from your pilot, step inside the basket, then float up and away. A glass of Champagne is provided. 

The Brecon Beacons is stunning from the ground, but its sweep of green hills is best appreciated from above. Drift over the Usk Valley, admiring a patchwork landscape of fields, broken up by little villages. The route doesn’t go as far as the Wye Valley, but on a clear day, you should get a good view from your vantage point in the sky.

Touch down and step back on to land and hop in a waiting vehicle, and travel back to the start point. Receive a flight certificate to take home as a souvenir, and then bid your pilot and crew goodbye.

Please note: Weather is unpredictable, so cancellations or rearrangements may occur. Practical clothes, suitable for the great Welsh outdoors, are recommended. A hat is also advised to protect your head from the heat of the balloon burners.

no tour, non-refundable

as this tour was 'non refundable', and we are in the United States (no travel to Europe), it was disappointing to say the least, also the 'non refundable' portion, as we were clearly unable to travel to Wales for this tour. i would recommend that no one, at this point, book a 'non refundable' tour, as currently there are considerable forces at play global wide that often make unexpected demands on travel abilities. ;i.e. can't go.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2020
Our flights from Viator are refundable. You need to ask them as you booked the flight with them. We are unable to fly in Wales as the Welsh government is not allowing ballooning at the moment due to Covid-19. We are sorry you were disappointed. We would love to fly you when it is safe to do so.
