Up, up and away... Float cloudward in a musical silence across the peace of the Cape Winelands. Calm landscapes carry you with care over the Berg River and its vast valley. Drift with wishes over fields of vine, catch dreams in a basket of light.
The Drakenstein Mountains stand tall to salute you, the Hottentots Holland Mountain Range pays respect at your feet and Table Mountain's distant silhouette winks in the sunlight to remind you that you share Cape skies. Adrift vineyards and countryside the soft breeze gentles all your fears aside as you take new perspective on life from this elevated state of mind.
Your colourful craft launches at sunrise to rise you slowly before thermal activity begins. You will assist in rigging the hot air balloon before you take from a root level to tree tops and finally to the spectacular world of silver linings. You will be laid back to earth after an hour of hot air ballooning, where a retrieve vehicle will collect you and return you to a breakfast spread in Paarl, at the Grande Roche Hotel.
