What You'll Get
The need to "feel the wind in your hair" is best fulfilled by hot air ballooning, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Travel in breezy style with today's Groupon to Beautiful Balloons. Choose from the following options:
- For $189, you get an anytime hot air balloon ride (up to a $330 value).
- For $499, you get a two-person sweetheart charter (up to a $1,200 value).
- For $529, you get three-person private charter (up to a $1,200 value).

Helmed by one of the first hot air balloon pilots to chart Canada's airways, the fleet of captains at Beautiful Balloons transports passengers high above the Kawartha region on routes that soar over the rivers, lakes, and other idyllic terrain. Passengers converge at the Lindsay Airport, where their pilot discerns a route based on winds and the advice of passing weather balloons. Routes vary, but guests may have a chance to bob over Fenelon Falls, swoop over lakes, and skim cloudbanks. The two-passenger Sweetheart flights offer lovebirds a unique getaway with far more romantic potential than a catapult trip. Three-passenger private charters, meanwhile, send trios skywards during one-hour private flights.
After the hot air balloons' final descent, passengers emerge from the gondola into an open field. Crews will then drive passengers back to their meeting location, giving sky walkers a chance to chuckle at the memory of the terrified birds their balloon silently snuck up on.
Though Beautiful Balloons sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
