About This Experience

General Information hide

Discover the beauty of the Vail Valley from above as you soar in a Hot Air Balloon. This taste of ballooning is the perfect unique gift for anyone planning to go to Eagle County.

The fun of this experience gift begins when you meet your friendly Pilot and his crew in Gypsum near the Eagle County Regional Airport. Here you will aid with the inflation of the balloon at sunrise. Once ready for lift off, you and the other participants will all climb into the basket as balloon becomes "lighter than air". Next, the balloon will gracefully ascend over a thousand feet into the sky, affording magnificent and breathtaking views of the Colorado Rockies.

Throughout the flight, the basket will move in tandem with the winds for approximately thirty minutes. Once the Pilot lands and the balloon and is packed away, you will enjoy a champagne toast to celebrate this special occasion, making this a lasting memory for years to come!

So whether you are looking for an exciting experience in Eagle River Valley or are looking for the perfect unique gift, this Vail Valley Hot Air Balloon Ride is the Ticket!
