Departing from Glens Falls, New York, this incredible balloon ride begins with the inflation of the balloon an hour before sunrise or two hours before sunset.

During this Glens Falls Hot Air Balloon Fight, you will move in tandem with the winds for approximately one hour, having ample time to relax as you drift over the sensational scenery.

After approximately 45 to 60 minutes the balloon will begin to descend and the Pilot will prepare for landing where the balloon flight’s chase crew will meet you and help you celebrate this exciting airborne voyage with a traditional Champagne toast. This Hot Air Balloon Ride over Glens Falls is an amazing airborne adventure to celebrate a special occasion and makes a truly unique gift.
