Take off for adventure with a magical hot air balloon ride. Atlanta residents and visitors alike will appreciate the gift of wide open air and the sense of freedom as they take a magical voyage of discovery over North Georgia's most celebrated highlights on a dream flight to remember. Show someone what it's like to soar like a cloud in a graceful hot air balloon and gain an unforgettable bird's eye view over the dramatic changing landscape, just a stone's throw from the city of Atlanta.
From your privileged vantage point, you'll look down on an ever-changing canvas of color and light and witness local landmarks including Stone Mountain, Kennesaw Mountain, the Atlanta skyline and more. See the start of the Appalachian and Blue Ridge Mountains as they snake their way into the distance and take in the true immensity of Lake Sidney Lanier, with its 30,000 acres of crystal clear waters. Catch a glimpse of the occasional deer running below you or fly with a red-tail hawk or the large cranes and blue herons that inhabit the abundant local lakes, ponds and marsh areas. Atlanta by air is breathtaking, and an experience that will never be forgotten.
