Overview

You have a unique opportunity to "break the earthly bonds of gravity," and if you've been dreaming about flying--try this! Imagine a magic carpet ride. The adventure begins shortly after sunrise when the mountain air is still calm and stable. Ballooning is an "hands-on" participation sport, and we will enlist your energy in the set-up and inflation of the balloon (optional). Have your camera ready to capture the excitement as our beautiful giant (120 feet tall, holding 240,000 cubic feet of hot air) rises for its journey. You'll then climb aboard our basket for the flight of a lifetime enjoying the enchanting sights and tranquility that can only be experienced from a hot air balloon. We may fly inches over the area lakes for a breathtaking "splash-n-dash," a little higher for some souvenir pine cones from the tops of trees or up to 3,000 feet for a 200 mile panoramic view of 4 states. Throughout the flight, there is no sense of height or motion, only a dreamlike floating sensation.

Lovely experience. Pilot Mike made the experience come alive with the history of the area as well as ballooning.

This was something on our bucket list, so for my husband’s 50th birthday we did it. Mike was an excellent pilot. He knows the area and has been doing this for a long time. This was the best!

This was my second time to take a hot air balloon ride with Mike and his crew at Rocky Mountain Balloon Adventures. It is a must-do while in Pagosa Springs. Very professional and knowledgeable. I felt safe and loved the experience!

It was nice to see how the hot air balloon gets set up and torn down plus the balloon pilot pointed places out when we soared above them. The fire did get pretty hot on my head so I had to get as far away...More

Although we discourage flyers under the age of 5 because the noise of the burners can be loud and scary to younger children, the choice is left up to each family. You know your kids best. Mike, the pilot's biggest advice... More
