What To Expect On Your Balloon Ride

The term "balloon ride" or "balloon flight" can be slightly misleading, since the event is more of a life experience than anything else.

Your experience may include everything from the anticipation and excitement before your balloon flight, to the wonder and awe that comes during the actual balloon ride itself, followed by the euphoria that blankets you during the traditional post flight toast as you recount your experience.

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.

A Top Attraction in Vermont 

We are honored to fly with local residents and tourists from all around the world.  We are one of the top "things to do in Vermont" for many nearby towns in the area such as Burlington and Stowe, and certainly one of the most unique. 

As we fly, keep a watchful eye for such animals as white tailed deer, red-tailed hawks, busy beavers, blue herons, black bears, wild turkeys, and the ever elusive moose. We might even catch a glimpse of our colorful reflection in a still mountain stream or pond. 

Landings can bring us to a variety of destinations. 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.

The Best Fall Foliage Tours in Vermont
