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.

Pagosa Hot Air Balloon Ride

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!

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)

We had a wonderful time! Feeling like part of the team getting the ballon ready to go gave us a sense of ownership in our ride. Once up in the air we were given historical facts from our gorgeous view of the mountains and valleys. Our pilot was well versed on the history of Pagosa. Thank you for the experience!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this balloon flight. It was a gorgeous day in Pagosa Springs. In fact we could have used a little wind to see more. It was very calm. Loved it!!!
