- Enjoy an unforgettable sunrise or sunset over St. Louis
- The most elegant form of sightseeing there is
There are some trips that just conjure up romance: cruising along the River Nile, the Trans Siberian Express, and of course, the majestic experience of flying in a hot air balloon. No other form of aviation comes close to that feeling of floating like a cloud across the sky, travelling wherever the wind takes you, and enjoying superb views whichever side of the basket you stand. This hot air balloon ride over St. Louis, Missouri, has the added bonus that it takes place either at sunrise or sunset, when the scenery is at its most beautiful.
Picture yourself cruising elegantly through the sky, with nothing to disturb the serenity apart from the occasional blast on the burners. Your pilot will point out landmarks, and expound on the joys, technicalities and history of ballooning, as you spend an hour up above the treetops. A chase vehicle pursues you throughout, and on landing after the balloon has been deflated and packed away, you’ll be invited to join the aeronauts’ club by taking the traditional ceremonial toast. Bon voyage!
