About
You have a unique opportunity to "break the earthly bonds of gravity," and if you've been dreaming about flying -- try this! 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 balloon 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. After the dreamlike floating sensation of the balloon, you'll enjoy a closing ceremony back on the ground.

Entire thing was perfection (except email could’ve been more clear about meeting in parking lot at 7am instead of only giving address). We loved Austin and also all the drivers (especially the girl but can’t remember her name). The trip was beautiful, relaxing with perfect weather. Views are stunning from balloon! Loved our adventure and highly recommend to all!

My family of 5 really enjoyed this once in a lifetime experience! Austin and his crew were amazing! Austin has been doing this for a long time and it shows - very professional and happy to answer all of the questions we had. It was amazing to have an aerial view of beautiful Pagosa Springs! Highly recommend this experience!

The entire experience was an absolute BLAST! The crew is so kind, knowledgeable and funny. The views are breathtaking. We toasted champagne post flight with a history lesson and professional photos to take home ❤️ 11/10 would recommend!

Rocky Mountain Balloon took us up to start our wedding day and it was a breathtaking experience! Our pilot, Mike, was very professional and friendly, accommodating us as we took professional photos inside the balloon as it was airing up. He also took photos of us while in flight. We had such a memorable time, especially when we had to be carried by the chase crew after we landed in a fenced-in field. We can't thank Rocky Mountain Balloon Adventures enough for helping to make our wedding day simply unforgettable!

Just do it, at least once in a life time! The view up in the air is incredible and serene. Austin and his crew are the very best. Experience, experience, and experience. There were other hobbyist hot air balloons who are friends of Austin and his family went UP the same morning with us because Austin's crew can watch and support them too. The whole experience from watching the balloon being blown up, getting the gear set up, up in the air, takes down... toasting champagne is a truly a ceremony to celebrate THE Moment.

It was a worthwhile adventure that kept us beaming from ear to ear while we were ascending 2200 feet! It was such a smooth flight, much smoother than an elevator or airplane. My sister didn't even realize we had ascended so high and so quickly because it was such a smooth ride!
This was a Bucket List dream for my Mom so we three had a wonderful time!
Additionally, we floated just over our vacation spot, so our young children and husbands could watch us throughout the ride. It was memorable, for sure!
Also, If the calendar looks booked, go ahead and give them a call. They may have cancellations the day of/day before so they may be able to fit you in on a last minute's notice! (That's what we did and they were so accommodating!)

It was an excellent experience all the way through the process: purchasing a spot online, receiving updates from the staff regarding the weather and departure times, the actual experience itself, and the little champagne celebration at the end. It was all very cool and helped accentuate my time in Pagosa Springs. If you want a lay of the land and see how spectacular the area is, I highly recommend a spot with these folks. It left me floating on air ;)

Austin and crew were great, from start to closing ceremony. Be prepared to be flexible with flights, as Mother Nature has a big say-so as when you might be able to go. We slipped a day due to snow but the next day was amazingly clear and calm so well worth the delay. Be ready to get cozy with your fellow passengers, if you're not booking a private flight. Had a great time meething our fellow passengers and crew. Highly recommend this experience and operation!

Shawn and his team gave us an amazing experience, snow covered mountains, viewing of a herd of elk from high above. Gave us some hiking and camping options in the area...and of course the best local dive bar!!!!

A hot air balloon ride is something that we always wanted to do and finally at 75 years old we had the great experience. It was wonderful. The staff was great and so friendly and helpful. The Pilot of the balloon gave us a minute by minute Verbal tour and pointed out all the many different spots that we could see from the air. I would recommend this for any age. Great experience!
