Nothing says romance like a hot air balloon ride at sunrise, with majestic Mount Rainier as your backdrop. If you only take one hot air balloon ride in your life – take this one – it’s magical. Experience floating silently above lakes, forests, and beautiful farmland at a height of 3,000 to 5,000 feet, while viewing the Cascade and Olympic Mountains. After landing you’ll be taken back to your starting point by the crew. Although this activity starts super early there’s something really special about seeing the sunrise from this elevation – it’s totally worth it! Shared flights (maximum 4 people), start at $295.00 per person, private flights at $1,400. Summer flights start VERY early, so be on time to ensure the perfect viewing moment!
Rainier Tip: Until the WA State is moved to stage four, no food or drink will be provided by the
balloon company. Best to bring a granola bar or two for the drive to this adventure.
Suggested Total Time for Balloon Experience: 2.5 hours, (not including drive time to location)
