Flight Details & Prices

Our 2014 flight operations are closed for the season. Details on our 2015 flight season will be coming soon.

Your true mountain balloon adventure begins at sunrise amidst the crisp clean air and the deep blue skies of the South Park Valley located high in the Central Rockies. Perched 9,000-10,000 feet above sea level this National Heritage Area offers the ultimate topography for hot air ballooning with a mixture of vast rolling hills, 360 degree panoramic mountain views and native wildlife. There are 54, 14,000 foot peaks in Colorado and 36 of them are visible from our flight area. The launch site is centrally located for easy access from Colorado's major resorts (Breckenridge, Keystone, Copper Mountain, Winter Park, Vail and Beaver Creek), as well as, Denver, Boulder, Castle Rock, Parker, Colorado Springs, Granby, Fraser, Littleton, Cripple Creek, Buena Vista, Salida, Canon City, Fairplay, Divide, Manitou Springs, Jefferson, Conifer, Bailey and Woodland Park.

The Experience

You will arrive at the launch site where hot coffee and snacks await you as you watch in awe as your balloon is inflated and prepared for flight. Next you'll climb aboard with great anticipation as your pilot gives you a briefing and flight instructions. Before you know it, you lift effortlessly into the air and begin your peaceful journey.

You will take in amazing views of the Colorado Rockies as you fly from treetop level up to several thousand feet while traveling 2 to 10 miles. During your flight you will be serenaded with classical music playing softly in the background as your pilot explains the history of ballooning and points out prominent scenery. After approximately one hour of magical flight it is time to return to the loving arms of Mother Earth. Next, it's time to pack up and return to the launch site for a traditional champagne toast followed by a white linen sit-down breakfast prepared on site featuring bacon, eggs, french toast, hash browns, fresh fruit and pastry. At the conclusion of your once in a lifetime balloon adventure you will be presented with a commemorative champagne glass to cherish for years to come.
