Hudson Valley Private Champagne Flight

Romantically Soar on a Hudson Valley Private Hot Air Balloon Flight

About This Experience

General Information hide

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

Then you will step into the basket as the balloon gently flies at wind speed. 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.

Your romantic flight ends with a champagne picnic prepared for you and your guest by a culinary institute graduate. So raise your glasses and toast to a memorable experience and unforgettable gift!
