HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

The ultimate hot air balloon adventure!

Arrive at our launch location in Newberg, just 35 minutes south of Portland, at dawn. Watch (and participate!) in the inflation of up to six 100-foot tall balloons being filled with over 200,000 cubic feet of air. Slowly ascend over the Willamette Valley while you gaze out at wine country, mountain peaks and volcanos, the river below, and up to five other balloons flying with you. After an approximately hour-long flight you will land and have the opportunity participate in the deflation process before returning to our launch location.

Safety is at the forefront of their rides. It was worth waiting for after cancelled 3 times. It is so hard to describe the feeling of tranquillity, greatness and beauty one sees from there. Thank you the our pilot of 30 years experience and crew. Touchdown was as gentle as the lift off. Just magical all it from start to finish.

High expectations were exceeded. Such a peaceful and unique experience unmatched by any other type of flight. You can’t fully appreciate what it’s like until you actually go... The people at this business love what they do and do it well, which makes the experience that much more enjoyable. Can’t wait to go again!

An unforgettable experience

A hands-on adventure with an approximately 1-hour hot air balloon flight. Fly in one of our 6 balloons which carry from 2 to 10 guests each, gaze out at 10 volcanos on a clear day, skim the Willamette River, and look out at the other balloons around you!
