Cornwall Living 2017

Your adventure awaits

There’s nothing quite like a Champagne balloon ride over the stunning landscapes of Cornwall

Thrilling, yet serene, there really is no better way to truly appreciate the rolling countryside and picturesque towns across Cornwall than on a hot air balloon ride.

Virgin Balloon Flights have several launch sites around the beautiful South West, from Liskeard, where you can fly from the stunning estate of Pentillie Castle to Launceston where you can take in the sights of Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor.

On clear days you can even see the coast – talk about those must-have sea views, worthy of any celebrity penthouse.

Flying in an iconic Virgin balloon, you’ll take in wonderful 360 degree views and see your home county from a totally unique perspective.

A hot air balloon ride is a nostalgic, once-in-a-lifetime experience that dates back to the 18th century – one of the most popular activities on bucket lists, offering a luxury adventure.

Hop into a basket at sunrise or sunset and float away before celebrating after landing with a traditional Champagne toast.

Imagine the photos you’ll capture on your airborne adventure – certainly ones for the album as you tell your grandchildren all about your trip to the skies.

As part of the experience, you can also help with the inflation and deflation of the balloon, a fun aspect of the adventure where you can learn all about the mechanics of ballooning.

Before receiving your retrieval service back to the launch site, you’ll also be presented with a certificate signed by your pilot and endorsed by Sir Richard Branson himself – a perfect memento of your unique day out.

Tick ballooning off your bucket list or give someone a gift they’ll never forget.

Virgin Balloon Flights are offering Cornwall Living readers £20 off national weekday morning vouchers so you can fly for £99pp. Float over incredible Cornish landscapes or if you don’t live in the area, you’ve also got the option of going up, up and away from 100 other locations across England, Scotland and Wales.

It’s time to take life higher.
