Welcome! Altitude Balloons is the South East's leading balloon company, with years of experience, certified by the Civil Aviation Authority and we are close to Henley on Thames. This part of Oxfordshire boasts some of the most stunning views in the county as the Thames winds it’s way through this bustling market town - even better when seen from the basket of a hot air balloon floating gently above.
Henley is best known because of its links to rowing through the Henley Royal Regatta. The town hosts the Henley Festival of Music and the Arts and has been used as a location for many films and TV series, in particular the Midsummer Murder series. Some of the fine houses in the area are open to the public including Stonor Park and the National Trust properties of Nuffield Place and Greys Court.
"My second time up in the balloon and every bit as magical and awesome as the first time - counting down the days for the next trip up! The feeling is quite indescribable but very very recommended. Thank you all for making it superb and safe, too."

NB. Due to airspace restrictions launch sites for hot air ballooning from Henley on Thames are chosen by your pilot on the day of the flight, and we will choose the safest and best launch site for the wind and weather conditions on that particular day. Flights from any particular launch site cannot be guaranteed on any particular day. We have back up launch sites near Wallingford and around Reading which we may need to use on the day.
