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.

We woke up at the crack of dawn to meet our driver, Eric, on Airport Road in Breckenridge for an approximate 1 hour scenic guided ride to our destination for our Hot Air Balloon ride.......Eric had more tidbits to share along the route and his knowledge and personality were a plus at that early hour of the morning. Everything ran... More

Very good pilot. He constantly maneuvered the balloon to keep every minute of the flight interesting. The ground staff were very professional, very friendly, and worked very hard to make the entire experience memorable.

The entire staff was fantastic, from our pilot to the guys cooking our meal. So friendly and accommodating. Food was fantastic, especially the mimosas :) Would love to do it again! Special shout-out to our pilot Greg and the very-entertaining Steve :D

Had a wonderful time with the Hot Air Balloon Company. Started with the shuttle driver Eric. He had trivia about any and everything going and coming from the launch site. Our balloon captain was a tall Swede who had over 40 years experience. The trip was about an hour and we went over a small-ish mountain where the captain brushed... More

The Colorado Balloon Company is truly one of a kind.  From the time that we arrived for pick up the driver Dave had coffee with the fixings ready.  He provided useful history and information about the local area and the day ahead.  When we got to the launch location the breakfast table was already set up and nicely decorated.  Steve...

Get the Platinum Flight package, it is worth it. At least to me and my wife. We always wanted to do it too. The shuttle picked us up in Breckenridge and it is about an hour drive into the South Park valley where the weather and winds are optimal for the ballooning experience. The weather wasn't not cooperating at first... More

Loved everything about this experience. From the friendly shuttle drivers to Tommy our pilot and Steve our entertainment haha! The flight was incredibly smooth and peaceful.

It was an amazing experience and beautiful. Our flight was scheduled for a Monday, but got cancelled due to strong wind predictions. They were fully booked the rest of the week and Greg made it possible to fit us in on a Saturday our last day in Colorado. Great way to end our vacation. The staff is very nice and... More
