Sri Lanka by hot air balloon Sri Lanka by hot air balloon

Free balloon experience

The Travel Concierge Sri Lanka has teamed up with its partner to offer exclusive complimentary hot air balloon experiences for guests from New Zealand travelling between February and April 2020.

The experience is valued at $630. Clients who book a full tour package for seven nights plus will be able to take the early morning adventure and see the sights from the air starting from Kandalama, Dambulla in the Cultural Triangle. Flying over the jungle they are likely to see elephants roaming freely, a variety of birds, water buffaloes and monkeys.

The climate in Dambulla during this time is exceptional for flying balloons due to its calm and predictable nature. The height of the balloon journey changes from tree top level to several thousand feet up – the best vantage point to observe the whole area. Before the flight, guests are offered a light Sri Lankan snack for breakfast at the take-off launch site while they watch the balloons being inflated.

After landing, guests celebrate in style with a glass of sparkling wine, juice and cake while the pilot hands them their personalised flight certificate. The flight time is approximately one hour (give or take ten minutes (dependant on conditions), enabling guests to then have a full day to continue their holiday. Check T&Cs. Contact
