Great company to deal with. They gave clear directions, instructions, and were easy to contact with any and all questions. The actual Balloon Ride was amazing even for me who is afraid of heights!!! Highly, highly recommend!!!

It can be difficult to fly because of very strict weather restrictions (it took me 3 tries to go up), but when you do go up it's an incredible experience! I plan to go again soon!

Absolutely an awesome adventure!! We had wanted to take this Hot Air Balloon ride for some time and certainly was not disappointed. The staff and crew were wonderful and made this an event that we will always remember.

FANTASTIC adventure! We will definitely be back! We took our 10 and 7 year old and they weren't afraid thanks to staff. The owner and staff are amazing!

Well worth the money. Very peaceful and I was quite nervous. The pilot really makes you feel safe and comfortable. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you!

One of the best experiences in the past 10 years! Make sure to wear a baseball hat - with no hat - it can get pretty hot when the burners are on.

From Our Editors

According to many Asheville residents, the best place to propose marriage is about a mile above the trees, with mountains in the background and a good grip on the ring. Such engagement flights might even lead to a midair wedding party comprising four colorful balloons all tethered together as they ferry well-wishers through the clouds. When the baskets touch down, a traditional champagne toast pays homage to the journey and the bond shared by its passengers.

Asheville Hot Air Balloons' pilots also helm more casual sunrise flights seven days a week. Each expedition takes them over Pisgah National Forest according to the whims of the breeze and the severity of the moon's allergies. The wind's unpredictable path ensures that the last leg of the trip is always exhilarating—"chasers" must tail and land the balloon in the nearest suitable space by securing ropes thrown from its basket. Spring, summer, and fall flights all arrest riders with their own brands of scenery, from woodland greenery to fiery tableaus of autumn leaves.
