Behind automobiles and turtle-drawn rickshaws, hot air balloons offer the swiftest escape from uncomfortable situations. Make an airy break for it with today's Groupon: for $109, you get a hot air balloon ride for one at Boise Hot Air Company (a $225 value).

Boise Hot Air Company's pilots sail person-packed gondolas across cerulean skies using the laws of gas density and one snazzy balloon. Passengers convene 30 minutes before daybreak at a site of the pilot's choosing, and nibble on pre-flight pastries, coffee, juice and excess sand bags. During a 45- to 60-minute flight, hot-air propelled vessels ascend 1,000–3,000 feet above the Earth's surface, granting passengers eagle-eye views of Boise, Treasure Valley, and rumored bald spots. Curious riders can help helm identified flying objects with the blessing of the pilot, aiding in altitude adjustments and acting as wing men for cumulonimbus flirtations. When air odysseys come to a close, balloon wranglers find an appropriate landing locale, and passengers de-basket for a champagne or sparkling-cider toast and photo.

The balloon-chasing crew knights journeyers with hot-air pins and a hot-air certificate. Grounded patrons kiss wicker goodbye before being escorted back to their own ground-dwelling vehicles. Some balloons can accommodate up to 7 people. Call ahead to make a reservation.

Boise Hot Air Company

As the early-morning sky lightens and the sun paints the horizon in purples, blues, oranges, and yellows, a fleet of balloons takes flight. These are Boise Hot Air Company’s balloons—colorful inflated vessels bedecked with purple and yellow stripes, red checkerboard patterns, and the stars and stripes of the American flag. Captains take groups aloft at 30 minutes before official sunrise in baskets equipped with seats and dividers for added safety. Flying only in fair weather and usually at speeds of no more than 8 miles per hour, the captains pilot leisurely flights low over the countryside of rolling hills from March through November.

Customer Reviews

It was far more amazing than I thought I recommend this to everyone that has the health to do it 😊

Way better than I expected. The ride was just the right amount of time. The staff was so friendly and made sure we were comfortable and knew exactly what to expect. The pilot was very professional and proved his experience. The toast and certificate at the end was the perfect touch to end the beautiful morning. I loved that the staff stayed and talked to each of us personally and weren't in a hurry to leave after it was over. One of the best experiences of my life.
