Planning and adpapt.. these people are great and knowledgeable, safety concious, and love what they do.... Sharing the experience of ballooning... Just remember weather changes and so do plans. Try to schedule out and try not to be last minute. As great as the folks are at Sky Drifters, mother nature sets the rules..

What You'll Get

From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon: for $112, you get a 50- to 70-minute sunrise balloon ride in the Sierra Nevada foothills and champagne toast with Sky Drifters in Rancho Murieta (up to a $225 value).

Sky Drifters provides patrons with sensational scenes of the Sierra Nevada foothills from the tranquility of a hot air balloon floating hundreds of feet above hilltops. This deal gets aspiring cloud-touchers an approximately 50 to 70-minute flight around 6 a.m., just as Helios pokes his honey-glazed head up from the east. Gaze at the painting-like serenity of the creeks and trees as the wind carries you above the Deer Creek Hills Preserve and the lush oak forests. Wildlife beholders will gain a new perspective as they play wingman to an airborne flock of feathered fauna or taunt the wingless animals below. Balloon rides typically consist of four to six people. Get to know new fellow air-gondola cowboys over a fun game of Six Degrees of Hot Air Balloon Inventor Joseph-Michel Montgolfier, or organize a group of pals to schedule an early-morning basket party. As opposed to a romantic private flight, group flights allow passengers to chat with the FAA commercially licensed pilot, who'll happily explain the details of the balloon and share memorable flight stories.
