With impressive moorland, Iron Age forts, ancient abbeys and an abundance of castles, flying over Somerset in a hot air balloon is a truly breath-taking experience. Whether you’re flying gracefully over the Quantock or Blackdown hills, drifting over the county’s woodlands and heathland or taking in the many striking buildings and monuments that litter this historic landscape, Somerset is an incredible location in which to fly.
