Ballooning Over Vermont

Pricing

"Views of Vermont" - $285 / person

photo

On this balloon flight you will discover all the spectacular sights that Vermont has to offer. No two flights are alike but on a "typical flight" we'll drift over the rolling foothills of the stoic Green Mountains with the sparkling shores of Lake Champlain and the majestic Adirondacks in view to the west.

All flights conclude with the traditional celebration including champagne, mimosas, sparkling cider, Cabot cheddar cheese and crackers, and Vermont made fudge.

Adult fare $285 per passenger
Child fare $199 (minimum 8 years old)

"Vermont Foliage Flight" (October only) - $350 / person

photo

This balloon ride has the same offerings as the "Views of Vermont" except it takes place during October during the spectacular foliage season. Enjoy peak Vermont colors from the air instead of by land, allowing you to see vistas that aren't visible from the ground! The breathtaking autumn canopy is a sight of beauty. This exquisite time of season only lasts for a few short weeks and fills up quickly so it's never too early to book.

All flights conclude with the traditional celebration including champagne, mimosas, sparkling cider, Cabot cheddar cheese and crackers, and Vermont made fudge.

Adult fare $350 per passenger
Child fare $350 (minimum 8 years old)

"High Altitude Mile High Club" - $325 / person

photo

Reach a guaranteed height of at least 5,280 feet above the ground! You'll be able to look down on the highest peak in Vermont, Mt. Mansfield, and take in ALL of the breathtaking scenery from altitudes higher than those reached on our other flights. After we reach the apex of our flight path we'll gradually descend back down to tree top level before landing. Includes all of the great scenery described in the Views of Vermont flight, with the thrill of added altitude.

All flights conclude with the traditional celebration including champagne, mimosas, sparkling cider, Cabot cheddar cheese and crackers, and Vermont made fudge.

Adult fare $325 per passenger

"Over the Mountain" - $450 / person

photo

Soar from one side of Mt. Mansfield to the other and discover what it's like to cross into the next major valley (usually Stowe). This flight typically involves altitudes over 1 mile high, when on a clear day it is possible to see into Canada. Special weather conditions required.

All flights conclude with the traditional celebration including champagne, mimosas, sparkling cider, Cabot cheddar cheese and crackers, and Vermont made fudge.

 

Adult fare $450 per passenger

"Lake Champlain Traverse" - $750 / person

photo

Sail from New York to Vermont - (but not in a boat). We'll cross over picturesque Lake Champlain via ferry into New York to launch. Then we'll drift above Vermont's largest body of water as our ground crew gets on the ferry to greet us back in Vermont. This flight is quite unique and special wind and weather conditions are required. The lake crossing flight is truly unique and very difficult to describe in words.

All flights conclude with the traditional celebration including champagne, mimosas, sparkling cider, Cabot cheddar cheese and crackers, and Vermont made fudge.

Adult fare $750 per passenger

"Exclusive Flight" (private flights 1-14 passengers) - $3,600

photo

While we believe that the old adage "the more the merrier" is true with ballooning we do provide exclusive, private flights for those special occasions. If you wish to have a balloon all to yourself (plus the pilot, of course) you can schedule an exclusive flight. Exclusive flights are not always available during October.

All flights conclude with the traditional celebration including champagne, mimosas, sparkling cider, Cabot cheddar cheese and crackers, and Vermont made fudge. We are happy to accommodate special requests on these flights. Please let us know if there is anything that we can do to make your flight unique, memorable, and special to you.

$3,600 ( 1 to 14 passengers)

"Haute Cuisine" (up to 8 passengers max) - $5,000

photo

Have you ever dreamed of having an exquisite cocktail party with good friends while floating above the Vermont countryside? If so, then this high-end flight is for you. The literal translation of this flight title is "high cooking", a French term referring to the elaborate preparations and taste of the cuisine, is exactly what your group will experience. Enjoy heavy hors d'oeuvres served in-flight by gourmet chef. These exquisite treats will be prepared using many fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. Accompanying the culinary delights will be a selection of wines from Vermont's own Boyden Valley Winery. Please call well in advance to book this flight so we can make all necessary preparations.

$5,000 (up to 8 passengers maximum)

Make sure to keep a watchful eye for such animals as White Tailed deer, Grey Hawks, busy beavers, Blue Herons, black bears, wild turkeys, and the ever elusive moose. We might catch a glimpse of our colorful reflection in a still mountain stream or pond. Landings can bring us to a variety of destinations including but not limited to: backyard BBQs, cow pastures, city streets, neighborhood cul-de-sacs, open parking lots, or even the taxi way at Burlington International Airport (don't worry we're in contact with the control tower AND get proper clearance before landing). Some of our flights have concluded with personal tours of working Vermont farmhouses, being greeted by a playground full of amazed school children, and even being invited onto a porch to drink our champagne out of the land owner's finest crystal. So come join us for the ride of a life time!
