What to Bring:

- Comfortable clothing that will not restrict active participation in inflating the balloon or climbing in and out of the basket should be worn. It is an active morning in the outdoors, so wear clothes that can get stained or dirty.

Please note: The burners can sometimes drip water mixed with Carbon. Global Ballooning will not be responsible for clothing that is stained or damaged as a part of this adventure activity.

- Wear clothes as for hiking, including sturdy shoes, warm socks and a cap, sunglasses. Make sure you have pockets with zips so you can keep items safe.

- High-heeled shoes, thongs/flip flops and open-toe shoes are NOT suitable.

- Feet can get wet and cold in the early morning dew, so perhaps bring a change of socks.

- Do not bring any bags as these will not be allowed on the balloon. You can leave them in the ground crew vehicle whilst on your flight or leave them at home/in your hotel.

- Depending on the time of year and weather, it can be extremely cold.

- Generally it will not be any colder in the air during the flight than on the ground, so wear layered clothing that can be removed as the day warms up.

- The burners can radiate heat so a hat is recommended.

- Cameras are welcome but are carried at your own risk.
