Five Most Romantic Hot Air Balloon Rides For Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is the perfect time to surprise your loved one with a romantic hot air balloon ride. Imagine floating above breath-taking landscapes, holding hands with your chosen partner and making a memory to last a lifetime.

With our latest addition to our roster here on FlyDays, our Romantic Ballooning for Two Experience, we decided to take a peek at some of the most romantic places to take a hot air balloon ride. We begin in the UK, at two of the destinations our package caters for, before moving further out into the world.

We're sure these five destinations will make your flying experience unforgettable and provide the perfect location to go for a romantic Valentine's Day gift…

  • The Peak District, England

We start off in the Peak District with its rolling hills, quaint villages and stunning lakes. This location would create a romantic atmosphere perfect for the lovers out there. However, with many hot air balloon rides taking to the skies during dawn, we feel that organising the trip for around August, when the heather is in full bloom, would be best to allow you to soak in the golden slopes.

  • York, England

York is another ideal destination in the UK for a romantic hot air balloon ride. The historic city walls, the York Minster and captivating countryside all provide a different experience and a stunning setting for a flying experience.

  • Along the Dordogne, near PĂ©rigord, France

Now we start moving further away from the UK and our first stop is into Europe. With its charming villages and stunning castles and chateaus along the way, floating 3000 feet above the Dordogne on a lazy spring or summer's day, would cap off many perfect trips.

  • Maasai Mara, Kenya

A balloon ride over the Maasai Mara in Kenya provides an opportunity to see wildlife from a unique perspective. Imagine drifting over herds of wildebeest and zebras during the Great Migration, combining both the excitement of seeing these animals, with being up in the air.

  • Cappadocia, Turkey

Now this location is one on many people's bucket lists, and a picture of the balloon festivals which are held here are synonymous with most hot air balloon rides. The unique rock formations, known as 'fairy chimneys,' combined with the desert valleys that flow through to the horizon, combine to make a perfect romantic ride.

While we can't fly you outside of the UK, our Romantic Ballooning for Two Experience can take you to two locations on the list, with plenty more for you to choose from. So, whether it's celebrating an anniversary, picking the right spot to pop the question, or just wanting to make a loving gesture to your partner, consider booking your spot through us today through purchase of our Gift Vouchers, or browse our other Hot Air Balloon Experiences we have available to book here on FlyDays.
