You’ll climb into the basket as the pilot continues to use the burner to heat up the air inside the balloon. As the balloon becomes lighter than air the hot air balloon will gracefully ascend to over 1,000 feet, offering spectacular views of farmland and the expansive boreal forest.

Your hot air balloon ride will fly over Bear Creek (as it flows through the city) and the hilly terrain of Grande Prairie, high above the scenic region local’s call “Peace Country” and lets you see the peeks of the Canadian Rockies. 

The balloon will travel at wind speed for approximately one hour, providingyou with lots of time to relax and enjoy this incredible sensation.
