BECAUSE RIDING IN A HOT AIR BALLOON IS SO DISTINCT FROM OTHER MEANS OF FLIGHT THESE DAYS, IT WILL BE UNLIKE EVERY OTHER JOURNEY YOU CAN HAVE IN THE SKY.
Hot air balloon rides happen at two times of day, dawn and dusk. At these times it won't be too hot outside and the landscape will be that much more incredible. For the night owls in the world, the rides at sunset normally go on two or three hours before dusk.
AS YOU ARE ARE UPLIFTED INTO THE AIR, YOUR CRAFT IS ONE WITH THE WIND.
The moment you are flying you will find yourself anywhere between 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. Weather permitting, a hot air balloon can travel all the way up to 10,000 feet. Considering that you find yourself in a balloon, this adventure doesn't truly have a specific destination. Typically your balloon will end up travelling anywhere between 2 and 5 miles over the course of about an hour.
This adventure is all about you, so you can only count on the best from us. Each of our pilots is a guaranteed professional. Every single licensed pilot with Vermont Balloon Rides is a specialist certified by the Federal Aviation Administration.
Leaving the ground in a hot air balloon is a trip into pure fantasy. From man's very first voyage into the sky, the hot air balloon still delivers an experience like nothing else.
In your daily life, it's about the destination. There is a great deal to do that you hardly ever get the chance to unwind. Finding yourself out in the world and above the woods changes everything. You are one with the sky in a serene moment beyond the grasp of time. Solely over gorgeous Vermont will you get such a sense of freedom.
Your adventure will start with gas burners bursting to life, raising your balloon off the ground. As soon as you meet just the right altitude, a peaceful silence will wash over you. You are soaring high in the sky, entirely untouchable. The spectacular scenery of Vermont will be just below the basket where you stand. Your captain will be a licensed pilot that guarantees a pleasurable and safe adventure for all. This is your chance to leave your concerns behind.READ MORE

In the past, the very first successful venture into the sky was on a hot air balloon. Having endured all this time from a long time ago in the 1700's, this has become a timeless experience.
While the times have absolutely adapted, hot air balloons are still a straightforward endeavour. Filled with hot air by gas burners, the balloon just above you is a bigger-than-life attraction to behold.
Exactly as there are all sorts of reasons for hot air ballooning, the balloons are available in all sizes and shapes. Hot air balloons are rather flexible too, being able to hold up to 16 people in one go. Nevertheless, balloons will typically fit 4, 8, 10, and 12 people at a time.
As the balloons themselves are raised by means of hot air, it's good to know how that functions. The reason you can enjoy a peaceful and amazing view from up above is simply because cold air is denser than hot. When the balloon is filled with hot air it is hoisted into the sky by the cold air all around it. Just like that, you're moving on air.READ MORE
