Where you'll be

Balloon flights are designed with your requests in mind. Normally passengers do not have the feeling of heights because of the lack of depth perception. Usually the balloon will fly to heights of two thousand feet with views up to 30 miles on clear days. Balloon direction is controlled by climbing and descending in the wind currents so we pick or launch site to fly over wildlife, lakes and other beautiful scenery.
