Cornwall balloon flight sights

With famous landmarks such as Lizard Point, Rocky Valley, King Arthur’s Castle and Geevor Tin Mine, Cornwall has a bountiful history that is visible from both land and air. Having recently gained its independence, Cornwall is very proud of its Celtic routes. The Cornish language, Kernewek, although no longer commonly spoken, descends directly from the prehistoric language spoken by Celtic settlers in the area.

An impressive one third of the Cornish region is officially recognised as having Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so with a balloon ride in the area there will be plenty to see. Glide over the famous Bodmin moor which has inspired so much folklore and art, gaze at medieval castles such as King Arthur’s in Tintagel, or take in the awe-inspiring sights of Lundy Island from above, which is home to a unique microcosm of wildlife right on the South West shores.

Ballooning in Cornwall with Aerosaurus begins within the areas of Bodmin, Launceston, Bude, Okehampton, Tavistock and Liskeard. With bustling market towns, vibrant seaside towns and beautiful landscapes, you will be able to experience traditional Cornish life at its best with a hot air balloon ride in Cornwall.

Beautiful weather for balloon rides in Cornwall

Cornwall is experiencing a scorching summer of great weather, which is always good news for anyone interested in a balloon flight. Balloons can’t fly in too high heat, but typically sunny days mean still, dry mornings and evening which provide the perfect weather conditions to fly in. Not only this, but blue skies create clear views with high visibility of the beautiful landscape.
