Very few people can truly say they love their jobs..but we can. Gliding effortlessly over the gorgeous Montana countryside observing some areas for the first time, places that have not yet been affected by human population, places you can’t even imagine. With each balloon ride we take we see or learn something new about the Treasure State. That is what makes this job so spectacular, to constantly be learning new things about the environment we call home.
Other than being host to The Battle of Little Bighorn during the Great Sioux War of 1876 and the birthplace of Evel Knievel, Montana holds one of the top ranking positions of the most beautiful states in the US. With so many places to inspire your natural heart it’s hard not to love the Montana countryside.
One of the most spectacular sights in MT is Granite Peak. With its snow capped peaks standing at 12,799 feet above sea level, the mountain range is one of the most spectacular views in the entire state. Another amazing natural landmark is the famous Berkeley Pit. From above, this deadly lake appears to be filled to the brim with red water. Some may call this an omen considering the acidity of the lake and it’s gradual rise, that it will eventually topple over and flood into clean streams close by. Despite its deadly nature, the lake is still beautiful to behold from the sky.
These among the many gorgeous sights, from the comfort of one of our baskets under the colorful globe of one of our balloons, are what makes our ballooning company different from the rest. Having pilots servicing nearly every city in Montana, you will never have to worry that you will be limited on what you can see. We ask that you come along with us, see the gorgeous landscape, experience something entirely new that you will thank yourself for later.
HOT AIR BALLOONING WILL SEEM AND FEEL DISTINCT FROM EVERY OTHER ADVENTURE IN THE SKY.
Hot air balloon rides occur at two times of day, dawn and dusk. Both reserved times of day make sure that it won't be too heated and it's difficult not to enjoy a view like that. The flights offered around sundown go on two to three hours before sunset, which is a great option if you aren't an early bird.
BY DRIFTING ALONG WITH THE WIND, THERE WON'T BE ANY BREEZE TO FEEL, MAKING THE EXPERIENCE VERY TRANQUIL.
Once you are flying you will find yourself anywhere around 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. Weather permitting, a hot air balloon can reach all the way up to 10,000 feet.
