Hot Air Balloon Flights – The New Celebrity Activity!

Industry: Travel & Leisure

One of Hollywood’s most famous couples has been enjoying a balloon flight – so can you.

United Kingdom (PRUnderground) December 14th, 2010

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie recently celebrated the birthday of son Pax by arranging a hot air balloon flight for all the family. The modern day Hollywood siren apparently delighted in filming the whole adventure, as they glided over the romantic city of Paris in a hot air balloon.

It is of little surprise that the Jolie-Pitt clan chose a hot air balloon flight for little Pax – the excitement of clambering into the wicker basket, watching the pilot inflate the balloon with blasts of hot air from the gas burners, untethering the balloon and then taking off gracefully into the sky is a truly breath-taking experience.

There is something very serene about heading off through the morning mist, with the sun slowly rising in the sky as you float higher and higher above the ground in your balloon. Leading activity gift voucher company Into the Blue is an expert when it comes to balloon flights and the company offers sunrise hot air balloon flights, as well as sunset balloon flights and daytime flights too.

If you’re looking for something very special for a loved one, the company also offers exclusive balloon flights. If you’re planning to ‘pop the question’ or have parents celebrating a special wedding anniversary, hot air balloon flights just for the two of you are the ultimate way to celebrate – and of course the Champagne will be flowing.

Booking hot air balloon flights as birthday gifts, just like Angelina and Brad did for son Pax, remains by far the most popular motive for these balloon flights according to Into the Blue website content editor Caroline Face. She commented : “Hot air balloon flights have always been on our top 10 list of most popular activity gift vouchers. The fact that Hollywood superstars Brad and Angelina enjoyed a balloon flight with all the family just goes to show how much fun and how enjoyable these flights are – even for multimillionaires!”
