Always dreamed of taking a hot air balloon ride? Looking to celebrate a special occasion? Do you just want to scratch it off your bucket list?

What's hot air ballooning like?

What does hot air ballooning feel like?

You don't feel motion

One of the most noticeable differences between a balloon and a plane or helicopter is that there is no sensation of movement, because it is so slow and gentle. In normal conditions, even the landing is very soft.

You get a bird's eye view

There is nothing like seeing the world from 500 to 2000 feet up (our normal flight levels).

What you can hear in a hot air balloon

You can hear everything

Since we fly relatively close to the ground, you can hear dogs barking, and cars honking at you. Often, after taking off or coming in for a landing, you're able to talk to people on the ground!
