Hudson Valley Hot Air Ballooning For Two

Soar Across The Beautiful Hudson Valley

About This Experience

General Information hide

Soar over the beautiful Hudson Valley with a guest on a picturesque Hot Air Balloon Ride. Your day begins by helping with the inflation of the balloon either at sunrise or sunset.  As you help the pilot prepare for a gentle take-off, you will learn how to properly fill the Hot Air Balloon so that it lifts into the air.  

Few experiences are as serene and at the same time thrilling - the sensation of time suspended as the world glides gently by. Drift over the beautiful Hudson Valley landscape and on a clear day you can even pick out the beautiful New York City skyline.

Once landed and the balloon is packed away, you will be returned to the launch site. Your flight ends with a traditional champagne picnic prepared for you and your guest by a culinary institute graduate.  The Hudson Valley Hot Air Balloon for Two is an unforgettable experience!
