A morning balloon flight over Warren/Washington Counties is one of the most exhilarating and beautiful experiences I have had. Being up in a balloon is an awesome opportunity to really take in the beauty of nature. The air is cool, crisp, and clean and you can see for miles over the Adirondack foothills. it's really cool.
UPstate ballooning's pilot and crew are knowledgeable and friendly. The whole process from setup to takedown is a positive experience with this company.
A balloon ride with Upstate is definitely something you will remember forever.

Wow! What a ride! I had the pleasure and acceleration of a balloon ride with UPstate Ballooning last Summer. It completed my "Bucket List" and then some. Andrew(the awesome pilot) was humorous yet very cautious and made me feel safe and a special part of his team. Speaking of teams, his balloon crew where very well trained, super friendly, and they too made the adventure one of a kind. If you haven't has a balloon ride here's the company to do it with. I hope to go up again with friends so I can show how unique and mind-blowing it can be.

I flew last year with UPstate Ballooning and it was the most incredible experience.

I would never fly with anyone but UPstate Ballooning pilot Andrew Avon. I have known him for years to be the most cautious and safe pilot and I trust him completely. I've bought gift certificates for my whole family and there's no way I would send them up with anyone else.

The views take your breath away! I was speechless and awestruck during my ride. I put it off for a long time thinking I would be too scared, but it was completely amazing.

Everyone needs to try this!
