Your flight adventure begins thirty minutes before sunrise at our launch site, located a mere 20 minutes from Portland. We are 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 by getting to see how the balloons work, up close.
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 as the sun rises over Mt Hood. See the Pacific Northwest and Willamette Valley as you have never seen them before. Depending on the direction of the winds you may fly quietly over the Willamette River, float over natural wooded areas teaming with wildlife, or glide over Oregon hops & vineyards.
After landing, enjoy a wonderful champagne toast back at the launch site. Reflect on your flight and chat 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.
