The Hogwarts Valley Balloons collectibles are high above the ground, so you’ll need a Broom to reach them, provided you want to achieve 100% completion in this area. As such, to obtain these Hogwarts Legacy collectibles, you’ll first need to complete the Flying Class main quest and then buy a Broom.
Hogwarts Valley features the most Balloons of any region in Hogwarts Legacy, and you’ll find them in 7 sets of 5 Balloons each. The good news is that as you pop Balloons, you unlock Broom skins, which you can claim from the Exploration tab of the Challenges menu.
Where To Find the Seven Hogwarts Valley Balloon Sets in Hogwarts Legacy
As you can see on the following Hogwarts Valley map, the 7 Balloon sets are scattered all over the region. Let’s see how to get them following the same order as the one on the map.
Balloon Set #1: East of Brocburrow
The first Hogwarts Valley Balloon set is found east of Brocburrow, the hamlet located in the northeastern corner of the region. While passing through Brocburrow, you might want to pick up one of the two Hogwarts Valley Demiguise Statues. Then, get on your Broom and head east to spot the 5 Balloons here. All you have to do to get credit for the collectibles is fly through each Balloon.
Balloon Set #2: Above the Railroad
For the second Balloon set in Hogwarts Valley, you’ll have to head southwest of Brocburrow at the location marked on the map above. Look for the Balloons above the railroad, south of the ruins where you can clear one of the Hogwarts Valley Ancient Magic Hotspots.
Balloon Set #3: Southwest of the Central Hogwarts Valley Floo Flame
Now make your way southwest of the Central Hogwarts Valley Floo Flame for the next set of Balloons. Fly high, and you’ll spot the Balloons at the third location pinpointed on our map.
Balloon Set #4: South of Some Ruins
The fourth Balloon set can be found west of the Keenbridge hamlet. More precisely, south of the ruins where you can also find one of the two Hogwarts Valley Landing Platforms.
Balloon Set #5: Southwest of the Mine’s Eye Floo Flame
Next, head southwest of The Mine’s Eye Floo Flame in the southern part of the region, and you’ll find another Balloon set above the railroad. You’ll also find one of the Hogwarts Valley Merlin Trials and one of the Landing Platforms in the same area.
Balloon Set #6: Northwest of the West Hogwarts Valley Floo Flame
The sixth set is found northwest of the West Hogwarts Valley Floo Flame. However, it’s available only during Madam Kogawa’s Assignment 2.
Balloon Set #7: Northwest of the Mine’s Eye Floo Flame
The last Hogwarts Valley Balloons are available only during Madam Kogawa’s Assignment 2, and the set is located northwest of The Mine’s Eye Floo Flame.
