What you can expect

Soar near the magnificent Rocky Mountains as they're drenched in early morning sunlight during this spectacular hot air balloon ride. Enjoy a champagne toast to celebrate your adventure through the skies as you sit back and relish the views of the surrounding mountainous landscapes.

After meeting your guide, head to the launch point, where you board a 9-story-tall hot air balloon, climbing inside a woven basket as the enormous fabric above you swells with air. Listen to the dramatic sounds of the burner as the inflation process continues, gradually lifting you off the ground and taking you to the heavens above. Feel the thrill of drifting 5,000 feet (1,524 m) over the mountains as you raise your glass of champagne in a celebratory toast while ascending high over Colorado Springs.

Your knowledgeable and FAA-certified pilot identifies some of the mountains in view as the sun rises higher in the sky, painting the world before you with rich golden hues. Keep an eye out for native birds flying nearby, as downy woodpeckers, northern flickers, and white-breasted nuthatches are often spotted in the vicinity.

Photo opportunities for breathtaking aerial shots of the Rocky Mountains abound throughout your flight, so be sure to snag a few snaps to commemorate this excursion forever.
