The Portland Rose Balloons Adventure
Your flight adventure begins thirty minutes before dawn at our launch site, located a mere 15 minutes from Portland. We are in fact, the closest hot air balloon company to Portland. While preparing the balloon for flight, your pilot and crew will invite you to become involved with the inflation process. Be more than just a passenger. Your “hands on” experience will make you feel like a full-fledged balloonist. Make sure you bring your camera and plenty of film.
Lift off is just the beginning. As the burners add hot air into the balloon we rise majestically and float across the early morning sky. Enjoy breathtaking views of the beautiful Willamette Valley as you have never seen them before. Depending on the direction of the winds, you may fly quietly over Lake Oswego, glide gently down the valley and across the vineyards, while waving to the early morning dog-walkers.
After landing, enjoy a wonderful champagne continental breakfast back at the launch site. Reflect on your flight with your friends and fellow passengers. If you have questions about the flight or the “lighter than air” experience, your pilot and crew will be pleased to answer them.
