This was a great experience. My husband loved being able to be part of the balloon preparation at the beginning and the take down at the end of our flight. All the staff are so friendly and the pilots very knowledgeable. The champagne brunch at the end was so tasty. We would recommend this experience to family and friends.

This package involves a flight followed by a brunch. You are expected to help ready your balloon and gondola for flight, and the entire sequence from that to launch is a whirl of sounds and motion. The rise to apex is accompanied by the blast from the propane burn, but thereafter, the flight's only inanimate sound is the occasional blast... More

Just celebrated a birthday in the friendly skies of the Willamette Valley with Vista Adventures hot air balloon ride. It was a gift from my husband and my first time up. Not once was I concerned about safety. These guys and women are pros. From finding the right launch location, to inflating the balloons, sailing over one of the prettiest... More

I book our flight as birthday gifts to my daughter (20), my son (25), and his girlfriend (25). We had a great time and really enjoyed the early morning glide around Newberg and especially the river. It was quite amazing how we can go down and touch the water and rise so quickly. We got to see the new bypass... More

The best way to start your morning drifting in a hot air balloon while the sun rises and highlights the beautiful scenery of the Pacific Northwest. We were able to see the lush surroundings and magnificent mountains. The weather in late July was just blissful. The staff and crew are spectacular and truly love what they do. They are outstandingly... More

Well worth having to get up early in the morning. The pilots and crews are all friendly and the pilots are very good at pointing out things that we were flying over. Safety is a major concern with them. Group of 5 or 6 balloons so will be able to get good photos of other balloons. Fantastic breakfast after ride.
