Colorado Springs: Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight

1. Colorado Springs: Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Flight

After meeting your guide, head to the launch point, where you will see the 9-story-tall hot air balloon for the first time. Climb inside a woven basket as the enormous fabric above you swells with air. Listen to the dramatic sounds of the burner as the inflation process continues, gradually lifting you off the ground and taking you to the heavens above. Feel the thrill of drifting 5,000 feet (1,524 m) over the mountains as you raise your glass of champagne in a celebratory toast while ascending high over Colorado Springs. Your knowledgeable and FAA-certified pilot will identify some of the mountains in view as the sun rises higher in the sky, painting the world before you with rich golden hues. Keep an eye out for native birds flying nearby, such as downy woodpeckers, northern flickers, and white-breasted nuthatches.  You'll have the chance to take breathtaking aerial shots of the Rocky Mountains throughout your flight, so be sure to take a few snaps from the air.

Rocky Mountain National Park: Scenic Airplane Flight

2. Rocky Mountain National Park: Scenic Airplane Flight

On this 30-minute private flight, you’ll experience the Front Range of Colorado from a bird’s-eye view, with your pilot acting as your guide. Enjoy your window seat as you soar over landmarks such as the Big Thompson River Canyon and savor incredible views of the Rocky Mountain National Park.   Departing from Longmont, your pilot will provide headsets for you to don as you glide over the beautiful nature of Colorado. Experience the view over the expansive Carter Lake and Big Thompson Canyon before glimpsing Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park.  Gain perspective on the Cameron Peak burn scar and learn other interesting facts about the land as your pilot narrates along the flight route. Be sure to bring a camera to relive this unique and unforgettable perspective of charming northern Colorado.

Then reverse course and head towards the Great Sand Dunes National Park to see never-ending sand dunes in among the desert and mountains.

What people are saying about Colorado

I am afraid of heights, but the crew made this the BEST experience ever! They clearly explained what was happening each step of the way, and made me feel safe. The first pilot, Kyle, had a sense of humor, which made it all the more fun; and Elijah, our second pilot, helped create the right timing to make my son’s proposal to his girlfriend just perfect!!! We had a great “flight” and enjoyed the view of Pike’s Peak, Garden of the Gods, and some running wildlife down below. After the flight, Kyle explained the history of Hot air balloon rides and the reason they end with Champagne (as he was pouring our champagne). We all did a toast. Then he sang happy birthday to my son, congratulated him on his engagement and included two other couples celebrating anniversaries. It was such an incredible experience, I would highly recommend this company to everyone and anyone thinking about checking off their bucket list!

Staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Our pilot John was awesome and got us off the ground safely and back to ground safely. The beauty and serenity and peacefulness once ur in the air is so amazing. If u have not done a hot air balloon ride I would highly recommend this company
