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.
