Discover Edmonton from a perspective unlike any other as you drift above the beautiful Edmonton River Valley area.

When you are ready and the balloon is inflating, you’ll climb into the basket as the pilot heats the air inside the balloon. When it becomes lighter than air the hot air balloon will gracefully ascend to over 1,000 feet, offering spectacular views of the beautiful Alberta countryside.

You will move in tandem with the winds for approximately an hour, providing you with lots of time to relax and enjoy this wonderful sensation.
