The fragile sandstone of Arches National Park and precarious rock towers drift past, each one defying gravity with you.

Enjoy this once in a lifetime opportunity... in the safety of the latest "state of the art" equipment. No two flights are ever the same. Most guests, ranging in ages from from 95 to 5, tell us it's their most memorable event of their vacation. Come fly with us at Canyonlands Ballooning for your hot air balloon adventure.

The Canyonlands Ballooning experience was the best way imaginable to start a vacation in the Moab area. We got to see everything from magnificent mountains to Prairie Dog mounds in a whole new way. As an experience that happens early in the morning, the balloon flight was an opportunity to maximize our vacation time in the area. It was a... More

It was a perfect day from lift off to a really nice 2 touch landing. Totally professional in all aspects from ground/chase crew to Captain Lou Bartell. Winds were favorable and we were able to float over Arches National Park and view many of the highlights we later drove through on the ground. Also saw some game viewing as we... More

This is a well run outfit. Ten members of our family were all on the same hot air balloon and one other one was doing a skydive at the same time. Lou, the pilot/owner radio the plane and they did a fly by close enough to see each other and wave. Very exciting for the whole group. He also managed... More

We were a family of three visiting from Ohio and this event was a surprise for my wife. She had always wanted to take a hot air balloon ride and could not have been more thrilled. While visiting Arches and Canyonlands National Parks we decided to try this to hopefully expand our experiences at these wonderful locations, and that we... More

In July of 2015 our family took a balloon flight with Canyonlands ballooning. Lou and his entire crew were consummate professionals and made our entire family feel very safe. His large balloon takes up 16 people. The flight was perfect and Lou was a real pleasure. During our flight, we mentioned to Lou that we had another family member scheduled... More

We are an older couple and my husband uses a wheelchair quite a bit. Sandra and I had some emails to check if hubby could take the flight and it was agreed that he would probably be ok. We met up at Archview RV park north of Moab and were taken by minibus to the launch site. When we arrived... More

Early morning pick-up near Arches Nationalpark; we were shown / explained how balloon is being prepared.Nice atmosphare, lots of information. Really liked that the pilot explained a lot, also during the flight. Made you feel very safe. Very smooth ride. Was impressed how well you can steer a balloon.

This is a must to really enjoy the parks of Moab Utah.! Lou is a great pilot and makes you feel at ease the minute that you meet him. Lou is an avid hiker, and shares all kinds of interesting information during the ride, makes some suggestions of areas to visit during your stay and shares a few jokes too.... More
