Things to do in Ouray Colorado - Balloon Over the San Juans


Hot Air Ballooning in Ouray County, Colorado

Hot Air Balloon Over Ridgway

Nearly everyday in the summer months, visitors can enjoy a Hot Air Balloon Ride in Ridgway, Colorado.  

Check it off the bucket list:  Hot Air Ballooning in SW Colorado.  Ridgway, a mere 10 minute car ride from Ouray, provides a wonderful backdrop to a Hot Air Balloon ride.  Warm shoes and a jacket are needed when you watch them inflate the balloon for an early morning ascension as morning temperatures are cool.  They take off by 7:00 am as the winds are calm at that time of day so it can be a bit chilly.  Once in the air, the sounds are only the voices of the passengers until the roar of the propane burners kick in to raise and lower the balloon to different altitudes.  Surprisingly, the ride is not windy in the least.  The balloon gently floats above Ridgway for a spectacular sight of the San Juan Mountains and Mount Sneffels in the background.  The valley floor, affectionately referred to as the Magic Carpet, provides a beautiful accompaniment to the stunningly beautiful Sneffels Massif.  

Hot air balloon rides are available most times of the year with San Juan Balloon Adventures and these make wonderful wedding presents for your friends and family.  The Box Canyon Lodge & Hot Springs offers a special balloon package which we call our "Up Up and Away" special.  We need to book these packages in advance as there is limited space available each day.
