With its beautiful sandy beaches, quaint coastal villages and wild moorland, it is no surprise that Cornwall has been voted the UK’s ‘Favourite Holiday Region’ at the British Travel Awards for the last two years and is in the running for the 2011 Awards.
There is no better way to experience the stunning scenery of Cornwall than on a hot air balloon flights with Aerosaurus Balloons.
With over 20 years experience, we can offer you an unforgettable experience floating above this picturesque landscape at heights of up to 6,000 ft! From this perspective you can expect to see both the North and South coastlines, the Bristol Channel, Lundy Island and Plymouth Sound. In addition to this you can also see a number of local landmarks which bear significant cultural and historical importance, such as the china clay pits of St Austell, various Tors on Dartmoor and the exhausted tin and copper mines on Bodmin Moor. Even this is just a small selection of the stunning sights that can be seen from on high in the sky. We recount even more in our look back on a summer of brilliant balloon flights in Cornwall.
The fun doesn’t have to stop there. After scouting out the beautiful landscapes from the air there are plenty of attractions and exciting things to see on foot afterwards. We’ve helpfully listed some of our favourites places to stay while ballooning in Cornwall.
We schedule flights in the morning and evening and these generally meet in Launceston or Altarnum, near Bodmin. In addition to our scheduled flights we also fly at various events in Cornwall and this year was no exception, as we attended the Boconnoc Steam Fair in Liskeard and the Launceston Show.
