Sail with Snohomish Balloon Ride aboard a colorful, nine-story balloon as gentle breezes carry you over the spectacular Snohomish valley and enjoy a stunning sunrise or sunset.
Fly Above Scenic Winthrop
The annual Winthrop Balloon Festival happens in early March, and it’s quite a sight to behold. Over a dozen balloons from around the Northwest fill the morning skies. Be one of the few lucky passengers who get to be part of it and experience it aboard a balloon! Passenger space is limited, so please book early for this exciting event.
This flight averages from 60 to 75 minutes aloft, launching just after sunrise. There’s a great post-flight celebration upon completion of the flight. Lodging is not included.
- Meeting & Balloon Launch Times
Our meeting time is 30 minutes before the official sunrise. You are notified of your meeting time at the time you make your reservation. The meeting site can change based on seasonal factors. You are notified of the location when you make the reservation. If you need directions, are lost, or are running late, please call us directly anytime.
- Weather Advisory
Snohomish Balloon Ride makes every attempt possible within the balloon’s flight characteristics and applicable FAA regulations to complete the balloon flight, weather permitting. However, due to the size and complexity of hot air balloons, operations can’t take place in all weather conditions. Should adverse weather conditions exist, the pilot exercises his right to cancel and/or abort the flight.
