Get Carried Away!

Experience Beauty and Adventure...


Here at Asheville Hot Air Balloons we offer one-hour sunrise flights in and around the Great Smoky Mountains. We are located just minutes from Asheville, NC. We fly in one of the best areas for hot air ballooning. The views you will see from the balloon are spectacular.

We have operated a commercial ride business for 30 years and also have operated an FAA certified repair station since 1983. Please contact us if you need a balloon repair. We do pilot training and are dealers for Firefly Balloons.

Flying High on Five Stars!

Absolute must do!

Loved, loved, loved being able to check this wonderful experience off of my bucket list. Such a wonderful flight with knowledgeable pilots and crew. Would never fly with anyone else.

What an experience

Not only did Rick go over ever precaution that is possible, he made us feel completely comfortable. In the preflight drills on taking off & landing, we new what to expect. I also want commend the setup crew and the landing crew.

One heck of a sunrise!

The views over the Pisgah National Forest are simply stunning. If you're celebrating something (or even if you're not!), this is a memory you won't soon forget.

Great view of the mountains of Asheville

This is one of the best customer service experience from the staff who took our reservations to the pilots of the balloons. It was a great ride with an awesome view. I can not wait to go again.
