What we do

The Vista experience

Your adventure begins at dawn at our launch location in Newberg, OR (approx. 35 minutes from Portland). We start by inflating the 100ft tall balloons, a photo op in itself. Feel free to watch or join in!

After the balloons are inflated and all safety checks complete, we are ready to fly. Our FAA-licensed pilots will take you on an approximately one-hour flight, depending on wind direction. During the flight, you’ll see the vineyard lined hills of the Willamette Valley, the twisting Willamette River, and 10 mountain peaks on a clear day - all amongst several other balloons. It's breathtaking, to say the least.

Upon landing, our ground crew will meet you to help deflate the balloon and drive you back to our launch site. Help is always appreciated, but never required! After the balloons are deflated and put away, board our vans for a 15-minute ride back to the launch site. Plan on approximately 2.5 hours for the whole experience.
