I had never done a hot air balloon. But it was on my bucket list. So in the lower rockies with incredible mountains and views so why not here. It was amazing. The sense of movement goes away. The feeling of being free of the earth makes you feel like a voyeur to the world. It is exciting and heart... More

If you have ever wanted to do this, this is the place and this is the company to use. We went to the Activity Center for Wyndham resorts and found a deal for 1/2 price balloon rides on Tuesday mornings. It is only a 1/2 hour ride, but more than worth the 110 pp it cost us. I mean, how... More

On our first morning (Sunday, 9/21/14) at Pagosa Springs there was a Hot Air Balloons Festival – it was beautiful. 48 balloons, beautiful sunny morning! At first we went to the Wyndham village, but then realized that the best view is right from our balcony at Eagle’s Loft - around the lake. It was spectacular. We decided that we have... More

Found this business through Trip Advisor. When I called to reserve (while driving to Colorado from Illinois) was greeted by Voice mail. Was a little concerned as I wondered if this was a fly by night business. As it turned out my fears were unfounded. Mike the owner and pilot has been offering flights for 29 years and had vast...

It was an awesome experience with an experienced group. Mike was very knowledgeable and interactive with everyone in the basket. We had a big group so he took eight of us up for 1/2 hour and then with a precise technique lowered us back down and we got out to that the other eight could get in. It was a... More

We booked for a Tuesday through Wyndham because they have a special on that day. The crew was awesome and answered everyone's questions. I will admit I was pretty scared before we did it. I highly recommend loose fitting jeans or even workout clothes. You have to climb in and out of the balloon and I noticed some People had... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to ride the hot air balloon. It was fun helping to setup the balloon, and very interesting. The landing was fine and helping pack up the balloon a very efficient endeavor. The pilot narrated local sites and history and the ride was quiet and smooth. This was a highlight of our vacation.

Booked this trip through our hotel. We were not advised of a website to read about this place. We simply payed out $125 per person for a 30 min ride. We were not briefed that we would be partly responsibility for the set up and take down of this balloon ride. Both my husband and I have back injuries so... More

A fantastic adventure of seeing Pagosa Springs and the San Juan mountains. Captain Jon and his crew were great and made it a wonderful adventure. I really liked how they included you in being part of the balloon set up. The after ride champagne toast to the Balloonist Prayer was a lot of fun. If you're in Pagosa Springs this... More
