Full description

Situated in Woodstock, VA, this experience provides flights that take off from the heart of the stunning Shenandoah Valley. Soaring over this region is incredibly rewarding and provides breathtaking vistas, including the Blue Ridge Mountains, Appalachian Mountains, Seven Bends of the Shenandoah River, eastern white-tailed deer, and numerous vineyards. Hot air ballooning is a unique aviation experience that enables you to witness nature's beauty and magnificence in a way that no other form of transportation can offer.

Typically, balloon flights are scheduled during the first hour after sunrise or the last hour of daylight before sunset. During the daytime, the air becomes too turbulent, making it unsafe for balloon flights. However, during the cooler months, flying during the day is possible because convection currents are less strong. Our flights usually last from 30 to 60 minutes

If you want to have a unique experience of enjoying the fall foliage, there's nothing better than going for a balloon ride! Don from Valley Ballooning is an experienced professional who prioritizes safety and makes sure you have a memorable experience. The crew on board, such as Randal, are super nice and even share pictures they take of you. The weather and wind conditions can be unpredictable but Don navigates through it with expertise. Although it may not be the most affordable experience, it is definitely worth it and I am grateful for the opportunity to have done it. If you're considering it, let me encourage you to go for it!

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a hot air balloon ride and I have to say that the entire experience, from scheduling to take off and landing, was excellent. Don, the pilot, was fantastic and kept me informed from start to finish. Being able to help launch and recover the balloon was an added bonus, as it allowed me to have a more hands-on experience. The views from the balloon were breathtaking and I truly felt like I was on top of the world. Overall, I would highly recommend this adventure to anyone who wants a unique and memorable experience. Don and his team were professional, friendly, and made the entire experience seamless. I have already recommended this adventure to others and can't wait to go again myself.

Don is an exceptional pilot who offers a must-try experience. The fall colors were breathtaking, and Don's expertise ensured that all four of us could enjoy the beauty of the valley. I highly recommend this experience.
