$125 for One-Hour Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride ($235 Value)

Pilots and passengers inflate a hot air balloon together before climbing into the basket for a flight over Pisgah National Forest. Steered by the wind, the balloon gives riders panoramic views of the Smoky Mountains during a one-hour trip up to 6,000 feet above the ground. Chasers help to land and pack up the balloon, and a traditional toast celebrates the flight. The total experience lasts approximately 2.5 hours. This Groupon is good for one admission for one person, though up to 10 people may ride at one time. This Groupon cannot be used towards engagement flights. Click here for frequently asked questions.

Asheville Hot Air Balloons

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.

Customer Reviews

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!
