Get a View From Above While Hot Air Ballooning In Idaho

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to see Idaho from above? How about from a Hot Air Balloon?

Well there are several companies that can help you do that as well as an amazing event that takes place in Boise aptly called the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic.

List of Events: 


Inflation in Ann Morrison Park / “KIDS DAY”
Inflation and Lift Off from Ann Morrison Park
Nite Glow & “V.I.P. Day”
Inflation and Lift Off from Ann Morrison Park

“The Great Launch”

The first inflation of the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic will start at 7:10 A.M. The activity will also be the Balloon Classic “Kids Day”. Children of all ages are invited for an up-close look at the balloons and (weather permitting) an opportunity to go for a short tethered lift. Expect about 15 balloons.       


Beginning at 7:10 AM, there will be a balloon launch and it is also 2014 Balloon Classic Media Day # 2. Expect about 20 balloons.


We show our thanks to those who make the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic possible. We take these patron sponsors up with us on the morning of Friday, August 29th. Expect to see all 50 balloons at this launch from beautiful Ann Morrison Park.

Friday evening, join us for Nite Glow. You can come and enjoy a line of balloons, inflated at dusk and glowing like 100-foot tall lanterns. There will also be great food available, a variety of family activities, and live music. 


Beginning at 7:10 AM, there will be a balloon launch and it is also 2014 Balloon Classic Media Day # 3. Expect about 20 balloons. 


This flight is the last scheduled inflation and launch of the 2014 Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic. Pilots will perform (weather permitting) “The Great Launch” with all fifty (50) balloons lifting off in an approximate two minute window. The Great Launch requires perfect weather so cross your fingers. If we get the weather, this will be one of the most remarkable things you will ever see (and) the absolute “photo moment” in the history of the 
event. If the event weather does not cooperate, a normal inflation and release will be executed.

You can enjoy the Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic or you can visit one of these websites to book your private tour our find out where you can book a private or group ride:

  1. Hot Air Ballooning is one of the most enjoyable activities in Idaho. I also had a good experience of Hot Air Ballooning in this region few months ago during my niagara falls tour with my friends. Through these rides we can explore the beauty and tranquility of floating above the treetops and enjoying the peaceful Idaho breeze. It is also one of the most fascinating adventures we will ever embark upon.
