What happens on the day
After a greeting and safety briefing from your pilot, the excitement begins with the inflation of the balloon, climb aboard and as you take off, the feeling will be one of pure excitement. The direction of the flight will be dictated by the wind and the flight itself will last around one hour. Your view of the beautiful Alberta will be uninterrupted in all directions as the scenery unfolds below. After landing, and once the balloon is packed away, it is time for the traditional celebratory toast with a glass of chilled Champagne or soft drink.
After your celebratory drink, you’ll be driven back to the launch site, before heading home with a real sense of achievement!
