Fly high above Virginia's historic triangle aboard a traditional hot air balloon and see this most beautiful part of America from a whole new angle. Launching from a pretty woodland you'll soon be rising high above the treetops and gasping in awe as the majestic York River comes into view.
In the distance lies the picturesque and historic Willamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown, whilst to the north is the spectacular York River State Park. Below you is the stunning vistas of Virgina as dense forests give way to rolling hills, raging rivers and silent twinkling lakes. This is both a truly memorable trip into the wide blue yonder and also back in time as you float gently over a landscape that helped shape the birth of democracy in America.
On landing celebrate your fabulous voyage of discovery with the traditional post balloon flight toast of chilled champagne - the perfect end to a fantastic experience.

Very responsive and helpful. The staff members I dealt with were all very courteous. Had an issue which was not the fault of Great American Days, but the representative worked with me to resolve it. Had a great time...my first hot air balloon ride. The group was very professional, but at the same time fun.
