About this experience
The Experience: Enjoy a hot air balloon flight over New Hampshire. A Hot air balloon ride is one of the most fascinating experiences you will ever have. The balloon take off point is about a 30-minute drive from Boston, MA. After preflight safety training, your experience will begin by helping the crew to assemble the balloon and taking some time to take some pictures. The hot air balloon will ascend between 500 to 2,000 feet in the air for approximately one hour allowing you plenty of time to take in aerial views of the surrounding land and mountains at sunrise before alighting on the ground for a champagne toast with crackers and cheese. You will also receive an official flight certificate.
Young or Old, we are confident that with the pilot, Andre and his 25+ years experience you will walk away with a memory of a lifetime and a story to share for years to come.
To enjoy the hot air balloon ride you must be 5 years or over. Women who are pregnant are not permitted to take a balloon ride. The Weather Hot air balloon rides will not operate in stormy weather or rain. Wind is the most critical factor in safe ballooning; it effects every phase of a flight. More balloon flights are cancelled due to wind than for any other reason. Balloons fly best in light and stable winds of 4-6 miles per hour or less. In the case of a cancellation because of bad weather you will be contacted beforehand and offered another date. We ask for passengers’ understanding if a flight must be rescheduled due to weather. Our pilots are just as disappointed as you when the weather causes a delay or cancellation Session Length Your experience will last approximately 3 hours including hands on launch and refreshments. Your balloon ride will last approximately one hour. Numbers This voucher is valid for one person. You will share the ballon ride with other passengers.

The temperature in the air is the same as the temperature on the ground. Dress casual and comfortable, shorts and dresses are not recommended. Morning launch sites are usually damp due to the dew or snow, sneakers or waterproof footwear are recommended and high heels and flip flops are prohibited.
