A hot air balloon flight in Alaska is guaranteed to be many things, most impressive of which is just how amazing the view of the scenery is here. Although Alaska has been part of the United States for years and years now, it still leaves the impression that it's almost an undiscovered territory. Its obvious people have inhabited the state because of the many industries and communities working and residing there, but the wilderness is so vastly untamed that it's almost foreign in nature.
This is precisely the reason that we believe this is an ideal location for a hot air ballooning adventure. You have the potential to fly high above the treetops and get a glimpse of the landscape below from a distance that is so elevated that you are well above the elements in nature here that serve to make it so wild and dangerous and yet somehow, by observing them, you are in fact interacting with them too. From the rivers where large grizzly bears seek fish for supper to the mountain tops where you may be lucky enough to spot an elusive wolf howling at the moon or calling her cubs to supper, both of which is a one of a kind experience and yes, made even better from a distance. We guarantee on your balloon flight, you’ll have the chance to see it all.
Additionally, you may have the possibility of getting a peek at some of the more well-known attractions that drive people to sightsee, tour or visit here, like the Mendenhall Glacier or Kenai Fjords National Park.
Regardless of what you see or don’t, an Alaskan hot air balloon flight is sure to be unrivaled in any other community in the world. Call us today to start your ballooning excursion in Alaska.
BECAUSE RIDING IN A HOT AIR BALLOON IS SO UNIQUE FROM OTHER OPTIONS OF FLIGHT TODAY, IT WILL BE UNLIKE ANY OTHER EXPERIENCE YOU CAN HAVE IN THE SKY.
Hot air balloon rides occur at two times of day, dawn and dusk. At these times it won't be overly heated outside and the landscape will be that much more remarkable. For the night owls in the world, the flights at sundown typically occur two or three hours before dusk.
COMFORTABLY COASTING ALONG, IT WILL FEEL LIKE A COMPLETELY STILL MOMENT WITH THE WORLD AROUND YOU.
The moment you are up in the air you will find yourself anywhere around 500 and 3,000 feet above the ground. In some cases, if the weather is perfect, your pilot may take you up as high as 10.000 feet. Now should you find yourself wondering, balloons don't exactly follow a distinct route. What you can expect though is being up in the sky for approximately an hour, making it somewhere between 2 and 5 miles from where you began.

The very first story of man reaching the sky was in a balloon. From the first ride in the 1700's, hot air balloons have stood the test of time.
While the times have definitely evolved, hot air balloons are still a straightforward practice. Containing hot air by heaters, the balloon just above you is a bigger-than-life sight to behold.
Just like there are all kinds of explanations for hot air ballooning, the balloons are available in all sizes and shapes. Hot air balloons are rather versatile too, having the capacity to carry as much as 16 people in one go. Numbers of 4, 8, 10, and 12 passengers are the most common however.
Balloons full of hot air is a fairly special way to fly, and how it runs is actually pretty neat. The reason you will get to enjoy a peaceful and fantastic view from up above is because cold air is denser than hot. When the balloon is loaded with hot air it is hoisted into the sky by the cool air all around it. Just like that, you're drifting on air.READ MORE
