Experience the Romance, Adventure, & Celebration

Sail with Snohomish Balloon Ride aboard a colorful, nine-story balloon as gentle breezes carry you over the spectacular Snohomish valley, sweeping just over tree tops, floating above a river or lake, or rising high above the earth for a picturesque view of the Northwest mountains and waterways. Relax with panoramic views of the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, including Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier, the Seattle and Everett skylines, Puget Sound, and the beautiful farmlands of our valley.

The Snohomish area was voted the Best Hot Air Balloon Ride in the Romantic Excursion category of the 2003 “Northwest Backroads Great Escapes'” poll. It was also named the Most Unusual Romantic Getaway, winning Best Balloon Ride in 2010, 2011, and 2012 in KING 5’s “Best of Western Washington” contests, as well as Best Balloon Ride in KING 5’s 2009, 2013, 2014, and 2015 “Best Northwest Escapes” contests.

Weather permitting, flights are available seven days a week from May 15 to September 30. Sunrise flights average 60 to 90 minutes aloft, meeting half an hour after sunrise. Sunset flights average 45 to 60 minutes aloft and meet two and a half hours prior to sunset. Sunrise and evening meeting times are seasonal.

We at Snohomish Balloon Ride like flying in Snohomish best of all. The Northwest is a beautiful place for hot air ballooning, and seeing it as you soar above everything aboard a hot air balloon is an experience like no other. Floating just above the river and the trees high enough to see Seattle and Vancouver creates an unforgettable balloon ride moment.

It’s a Beautiful Day for a Balloon Ride!

We got married on the balloon!

My husband and I had our first official date on a hot air balloon over 5 years ago. We wanted to elope but wanted it to be somewhere special and meaningful to us. Since our first date was on a balloon, we figured getting married on one would be perfect! My sister was our officiant, our pilot was amazing and the staff allowed us to take pictures with our families before taking off. It was fun, stressfree, and relaxing!

Best Birthday Ever!

This was the best birthday ever! The ride was amazing and invigorating. This is something that everyone needs to do at least once in their lifetime. Bob and the crew are amazing people to be around and the celebration at the end was the topper to an amazing evening. Thanks for the ride of a lifetime.

Awesome Experience

We had a wonderful experience with Snohomish Balloon Rides! We had an unfortunate turn of events with another company and Snohomish Balloon hopped in and really helped us out. They were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and fun! They really went above and beyond and we had an amazing time.

Best Balloon Ride Ever

After several days of having to cancel due to weather, the company fit us in for a perfect Friday evening ride that was everything we could have wanted....just the right wind speed for a beautiful, quiet ride over the farm fields surrounded by the Cascade Mountains with Mount Rainier clear in the distance. Our pilot was delightful, humorous and obviously took safety first.

Above the Tree Tops

What a beautiful and amazing experience. It was so calming to be above the hustle and bustle of the city life and take in the spectacular 360 degree view of all the mountain ranges and the Snohomish valley landscape. Bob and his crew did a fantastic job throughout the flight and we celebrated with a fun champagne tradition afterwards. Definitely will do this again
