A balloon ride is an experience that you will never forget. There is nothing like floating on air in a hot air balloon. Aside from the occasional sound of the propane burners, it is very quiet. There is virtually no sensation of movement - just the pleasure of a magnificent 360 degree panoramic view that is constantly changing as you gently float along. The balloon itself is beautiful in size, shape, and colors. Every flight is unique and you will always remember your first one.

We receive over 10,000 requests a year, and it takes a lot of people to make sure the right volunteer speaking the right language is meeting the right visitors at the right time and location.

These are typical reactions first-time balloonists have after floating on air. Ballooning is unlike anything else you've ever done. You'll have a 360-degree panoramic view of the countryside from your stable perch. Because you are moving with the wind, you won't feel it - regardless of how strong it may be. If you were to close your eyes, you'd think you were in your kitchen. But keep your eyes wide open! And perhaps you'll see deer or other animals scurrying in the woods. Or awed spectators gazing up while waving a friendly hello. Or you'll pick a leaf or pine cone from the top of a tree. Or all of those experiences - and many more!
