You have a unique opportunity to "break the earthly bonds of gravity," and if you've been dreaming about flying--try this! The adventure begins when we meet our guests shortly after sunrise when the mountain air is still calm and stable, the perfect conditions for ballooning! Ballooning is a "hands-on" participation sport, and we will enlist your energy in the set-up and inflation of the balloon which will hold up to six passengers and the pilot. You'll want to have your camera ready to capture the excitement as our beautiful giant (120 feet tall, holding 240,000 cubic feet of hot air) rises for its journey. You'll then climb aboard our basket for the flight of a lifetime enjoying the enchanting sights and tranquility that can only be experienced from a hot air balloon. Imagine a magic carpet ride! We may fly inches over the area lakes for a breathtaking "splash-n-dash," a little higher for some souvenir pine cones from the tops of trees or up to 3,000 feet for a 200 mile panoramic view of 4 states. Throughout the flight, there is no sense of height or motion, only a dreamlike floating sensation.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Everyone that helped was professional in dealing with people and doing what they do best, flying a hot air balloon! If you've never done this, this is the one to do!!!!!!!!!!

Having talked to various people who have flown in hot air balloons in the past, and having checked prices in many different places, I can highly recommend this company as one of the best anywhere! I have no idea if most of Mike's flights were...More

What a cool adventure! We did hope to go a little further but the weather didn't cooperate. We went up, hovered a bit then landed. The pilot and crew were great though.

Our hot air balloon experience was awesome! Mike was very professional, experienced, and personable. He told us many interesting stories about what we were seeing in the air. His crew was excellent as well! We would highly recommend this excursion!

We had a very lovely experience. Everybody was so friendly and made our ride from start to end so fun. The pictures were excellent. The only thing is that we were expecting a continental breakfast, but we only got a muffin (good one)

It was amazing! I am afraid of heights but the balloon was very still and it didn't even feel like I was 2000 feet in the air! I got the best vacation photos ever!

Just curious if this is year round? Coming at the end of July and also wondering what it cost per person. Do you need to make a reservation?

The flight is 30 or 40 minutes. But you arrive at 7 and finish around 10. You watch or participate in all of the set up on both ends. The launch and the landing. It's fascinating.

What time do you lift off? Do you have rides everyday of the week. We're in Pagosa for the month of June. Thank you.
