We offer our Mountain Hot Air Balloon Flights in the South Park Valley located high in the central mountains in the exact center of Colorado. Located between Hartsel and Wilkerson Pass and perched above 9,000 feet this unique historical area offers the ultimate topography for hot air ballooning with a mixture of vast rolling hills, 360 degree mountain views and native wildlife. We provide complimentary transportation for those passengers staying in Summit County and the Vail Valley. These passengers will meet us at our central meeting place in Breckenridge where we will provide transportation from there to and from the launch site.

It was one of the most amazing things I have ever done in my life. I couldn't have chosen a better tour operator to provide us with that awesome and unforgettable experience. Every single crew member was incredibly professional,attentive and had a great sense of humor that made our early excursion a whole lot better. Highly recommended!

From beginning to end our experience with the staff and the ride was superb. Competent pilots who will take no chances. All handled scientifically. Staff very personable and made people very comfortable with the event. The balloon ride itself was lovely soaring above the valley with views of lakes, mountains and forests from high in the air. Smooth flight in... More

We spent a week in Breckenridge and had a flight scheduled for Wednesday. Balloons were not able to fly that day but we were able to reschedule for Friday. The flight was nice and smooth, we flew at the tree tops over a hill, and captain Tommy was funny and informative. But watch out for Steve!

We stayed the night in Breck and rode the shuttle van to the lift site which is an hour south of Breck, closer to Colorado Springs really. The driver Eric was very friendly and pointed out things of interest along the way. At the lift site the entire staff was so friendly. Our pilot Tommy has been flying balloons for... More

The people are terrific. We had a great experience from pickup in Breck to safe drop off back. Preflight view of interior of balloon was amazing. It is huge. Pilot Tom is pleasant and as talkative as you want him to be. He answers questions and tells stories about his adventures if prompted. The ride was wonderful from takeoff to... More

We had such an amazing time this morning effortlessly soaring a thousand feet or more above the valley floor in central CO. The views of Pikes Peak, the sunrise, and the many mountain ranges in every direction were a sight to see. As importantly, the entire team at Colorado Hot Air Balloons is very friendly and welcoming and truly understand... More

Highly recommend!!! This was the splurge of our trip and definitely worth it! Everything was perfect from our pick-up in Breckenridge to the mimosas and breakfast post-flight. The entire staff was so friendly and fun (especially Steve!). They worked hard to make sure the whole experience was perfect for everyone.
