A gentle, birds-eye view of the scenic Delaware Valley
Drift along with the wind to see what the birds see, tree tops rustling beneath as you take in a golden sunset. Feel the thrill of climbing a half-mile into the sky, suspended beneath a colorful hot air balloon. Take in the breathtaking views that stretch from the Philadelphia skyline all the way to New York City, with the Delaware Water Gap in between.
Just remember to relax and enjoy the hour-long ride. When ballooning, the trip is the destination — you never know where you’re going until you get there.
Balloon flights are available in both Lancaster and Chester Counties.
Wear casual, weather-appropriate clothing. Skirts and high heels are not recommended.
Hot air ballooning has a long Philadelphia history. The first U.S. flight left from inside the city, with dignitaries such as Benjamin Franklin and Betsy Ross in attendance.
