Taking a balloon flight from Methven, situated on New Zealand's Canterbury Plains, is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular experiences. Our launch point is nestled near the foothills of Mt. Hutt, benefiting from the mountains' natural barrier against the dominant North Westerly breezes. With the freedom to ascend up to 9,500 ft, we're graced with breathtaking views that stretch across the Southern Alps, reaching landmarks like Mt. Cook and Mt. Aspiring, and extending eastward over the mosaic-like plains, all the way to the Pacific coast.
