Bali Hot Air Balloon Ubud

Get a Bird’s-eye View of Ubud in a Bali Hot Air Balloon

Not every tourism journey is created equal. Sure, some are rather run of the mill, with experiences that many people can say that they’ve had. However, there are plenty of others that maintain their uniqueness, meaning the folks who get to live them out really do have something to brag about.

Take the leap toward a Bali hot air balloon adventure in Ubud and you’ll quickly become someone with a story to tell. This tour is well-equipped for the audacious spirit, and makes for the perfect memory of an island as spectacular as Bali.

Flying High Over Ubud

If you’ve seen Ubud from the ground, you’ll know just how beautiful it is from the inside out. As such, you shouldn’t be surprised to know that it’s equally as stunning from an aerial perspective. By embarking on a Bali hot air balloon journey and taking the vista in for yourself, you’ll remember exactly what prompted you to come to Bali in the first place.

The experience itself includes up to 12 minutes in a hot air balloon as well as a 50-meter ascent. This rise, which is secured with a tether, occurs over scenic rice fields in majestic Ubud. Peering above Tanah Gajah, you’ll feel exhilarated, as if your experience has been amplified to make it even better. Whether you choose to fly in the morning, afternoon or evening is up to you, but the scene from the sky will be one-of-a-kind during each embarkation.

As a traveler, this is your only opportunity to experience a hot air balloon ride on Bali, as it’s the island’s first and only adventure of its kind. If that’s not an incentive to go with the wind, we don’t know what is.

A Prime Menu to Go Along

The Bali hot air balloon tour includes a sunrise breakfast, sunset afternoon tea or evening dinner depending on which time of day you opt for.

In the morning, you can expect fresh juices, smoothies, martabak, omelets, sausage cappuccino and more. This meal will propel you for the remainder of your day, which you can spend exploring the depths of the island from whichever angle you please.

The sunset afternoon tea is of a premium echelon, with high-quality tea and coffee to select from. This meal also includes delectable and satiating snacks, not the least of which is Balinese-spiced tuna satay, finger sandwiches, jackfruit fritters and even rich and decadent Valrhona chocolate cake. We don’t know about you, but that has us drooling.

The evening dinner is just as satisfying, thanks to a three-course Balinese set menu. Here, you’ll be able to experience a local fare that’s been thoughtfully and expertly prepared by Bali’s very own.

Keep in Mind Before You Go

As one might expect, a hot air balloon experience is subject to weather conditions. Of course, the safety of everyone involved is the top priority, so we recommend being open to rescheduling in the unlikely event of poor weather and wind.

The single ride can fit two adults and two children, so if you’re a couple seeking a shared experience or a small family hoping for some excitement, this bird’s-eye venture truly is ideal for you!
