This trip was amazing. If you've never been hot air ballooning, Moab is the place to try it and Canyondlands Ballooning is the company to go with. The views were stunning and the pilot was able to point out so much to us. He was very experienced and knowledgeable both about the area and flying. He even brought us down... More

I've always wanted to go ballooning, so on my trip out west, I splurged for my daughter and I to go on this flight near Moab. Everything was top notch, and the pilot was completely professional. I was hoping that we'd get to float over Arches NP, but when ballooning, you float with the wind. Even though our flight didn't... More

The flight was a birthday present to my wife. We were both thrilled with it. There's nothing like the ride of the balloon and the sunrise views were uniquely spectacular. There were about 15 of us up there (young and old), and we were all similarly intoxicated by the experience...big smiles, wide-eyed. Lou and his GREAT ground crew did a... More

By far this balloon ride was the highlight of our trip. All of my anxiety was erased as soon as we took off. Jimmy our pilot gave us a great, smooth ride. We even had the pleasure of the owner Lou accompany us on our ride. We floated over the desert for about 90 minutes and experienced a smooth landing.... More

This was the second time in 2 summers that we have flown with Lou. He is extremely anxious to make this the perfect experience. Never once did I feel unsafe. He is friendly, personable, professional and attentive. You will enjoy this and it will be the highlight of your trip to Moab!
