Up in the hot air balloon!In 1784, Thomas Jefferson was profoundly interested in the great new technological innovation of hot air balloons. He believed the balloon would have many uses, including transporting goods, gathering military intelligence, and discovering the North Pole. Experience the same fascination and amazement that our eminent founding father felt, while flying over the same landscape in which he felt it!

A hot air balloon ride is an incredibly peaceful and gentle way to witness the beauty of Central Virginia. Trust us--we've flown a number of times ourselves and found the experience to be relaxing and breathtakingly beautiful. There is simply no better way to tour Virginia's gorgeous rolling hills and flowing rivers.
