Do you know someone special in your life who has always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon? A hot air balloon ride over the Toronto area (Kitchener) is the perfect experience gift!

The adventure begins when you meet with your pilot, crew and fellow passengers. Once the hot air balloon is inflated, everyone will climb into the basket while the pilot continues to heat up the air inside of the balloon. The balloon will gradually ascend above the treetops, over a thousand feet into the sky and you’ll begin floating over the Southern Ontario.

Flying in a hot air balloon is a truly unique experience. You’ll feel like you are in a dream as you gently glide through the sky without the sensation of wind. You’ll will be airborne, depending on weather conditions and wind speed, for approximately one hour.

As approach the end of your flight, the hot air balloon will begin to descend back down to earth where you’ll celebrate your adventure with a champagne toast.

What's included: 

  • One hour approx. flight time.
  • Champagne celebration on landing.
  • Return transport back to the launch. 


  • May thru October. 
  • Valid for ‘Anytime Flight’ Monday to Sunday AM/PM (subject to availability).
  • Flights take place at Sunrise or approximately 2 hours prior to Sunset. Times will vary upon the time of year the flight is scheduled.
