Hot Air Balloon Rides in Western North Carolina 

Interested in seeing the beautiful mountains and meadows of Western North Carolina from a unique perspective? Then a hot air balloon ride is for you! Flight times vary but a typical outing is between 45 minutes to an hour in the air and leave daily from April until January, weather permitting, at sunrise. The entire process from start to finish, including flight time takes about 21/2 hours. The balloon floats in the direction of the wind and can rise from 500 to 2000 feet in the air. Flights offered by the Asheville Hot Air Balloon company, in business since 1981 and the only hot air balloon outfit in WNC, are typically above the countryside west of Asheville and include parts of the Pisgah National Forest.

Asheville Hot Air Balloons 909 Smoky Park Highway, Candler NC 28715, 828-667-9943.
