It’s no secret that the South Island of New Zealand is regarded as one of the most scenic places on the planet. While many will tell you the absolute best way to experience this beauty is from the windows of a helicopter, why not try something a little different and tour the South Island of New Zealand from the basket of a hot air balloon? Peer towards the soaring peaks of the Southern Alps and across the fertile valleys and vineyards of Canterbury to see why experiencing the South Island by hot air balloon is a creative adventure worthy of inclusion on any South Island itinerary.
