For THE adventure of a lifetime, come join your professional FAA pilot Lou Bartell for a hot air balloon ride over the Canyonlands in Moab, Utah. Imagine ascending to greet the sunrise as you drift among geologic wonders that were being created when dinosaurs roamed the earth. 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.

Canyonlands Ballooning can't control the weather, but they're damned determined to work around it. I visited Moab with a group of friends in May 2015. It doesn't rain often in the desert, so we must've been there the one week of the year that it actually did. We were disappointed the first day when our balloon ride got rained out,... More

My family took our first hot air balloon flight with Lou and Canyonlands Ballooning! It was the adventure of a lifetime! The crew was very professional, and Lou brought the sights to life with his personal tales. A must do in Mohab!

100% MUST DO! Fantastic family adventure. Sandra answered all my pre-booking questions. Dray & the ground crew were friendly & great with the kids. Lou - owner & pilot- was fun, knowledgeable & made all of us feel like a part of the family...he was fantastic with the kids too! Would do it again!

We set out at daybreak with Canyonlands Ballooning. Our guide was excellent-- very knowledgeable and friendly. The ride felt like sailing, and the views were amazing. We did it our first full day in Moab and it was great because we then knew the lay of the land for what we later explored by car and hiking. It's an expensive... More

This is an adventure you should experience, Moab is the place to do it. These are the people to do it with! We had an amazing flight. Lou is an excellent pilot. My wife and I felt very safe and had one heck of a good time. We flew over Arches NP at various heights. Fantastic views. Easy reservation and... More

Incredible, safe, and fun would be the best way to describe it. We loved every bit of the trip from the email communication to the post drink toast. Perfect landing by Lou and a team effort to keep the basket level. Not scary at all. Great ground team support and enthusiasm. No fake friendliness. Lou and his team enjoy what... More

Lou and his crew were great - excellent service. Fantastic canopy color against the background, great lift off, interesting flight and one of the best touchdowns ever! Would highly recommend - well worth the time and money.

Fantastic experience, well organised and professional from start to finish, everything ran to time and was really relaxed and friendly. Staff all really helpful and personable, and very experienced balloon pilot. Fantastic views over the canyonlands, glass of champagne to celebrate at the end and beautiful weather - can't fault it!
