BECAUSE TRAVELLING IN A HOT AIR BALLOON IS SO DIFFERENT FROM OTHER METHODS OF FLIGHT THESE DAYS, IT WILL BE UNLIKE EVERY OTHER JOURNEY YOU CAN HAVE IN THE SKY.
Hot air balloon rides occur at two times of day, dawn and dusk. At these times it won't be excessively hot outside and the landscape will be that much more remarkable. The rides available around sunset take place two to three hours prior to sunset, which is a great alternative if you aren't an early riser.
EVERYTHING AROUND YOU, INCLUDING YOUR MEANS OF LIFT, IS AIR.
The moment you are flying you will find yourself anywhere somewhere between 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. Occasionally, if the weather is perfect, your pilot may bring you up as high as 10.000 feet. Given that you are in a balloon, this experience doesn't truly have a specific destination. Typically your balloon will end up journeying anywhere between 2 and 5 miles over the course of around an hour.
We only offer the best for you, so you don't need to worry about a thing. Each of our pilots is a guaranteed specialist. Every single qualified professional working with us must be in ownership of a Pilot's Certificate and license through the Federal Aviation Administration.
Leaving the ground in a hot air balloon is a journey into pure fantasy. From man's very first flight into the sky, the hot air balloon still delivers an adventure like no other.

The very first story of man reaching the sky was in a balloon. From the first flight in the 1700's, hot air balloons have stood the test of time.
While the times have absolutely changed, hot air balloons are still a straightforward endeavour. Filled with hot air by burners, the balloon just over you is a bigger-than-life attraction to behold.
Just as there are all sorts of explanations for hot air ballooning, the balloons appear in all sizes and shapes. Relying on overall size, a hot air balloon can carry up to 16 people. Having said that, balloons will generally suit 4, 8, 10, and 12 people at a time.
As the balloons themselves are lifted by means of hot air, it's good to understand how that works. The reason you get to enjoy a peaceful and fantastic view from up above is simply because cold air is denser than hot. Filling a balloon with hot air hoists it right up over the cooler air up into the sky. Just like that, you're floating on air.READ MORE
