Best Seattle Gift For The Holidays

Coming up with amazing holiday gifts is hard. We decided to make it easy on you this year. Take your loved one on a hot air balloon ride in front of Mt. Rainier or fly in a hot air balloon festival.

March 3rd-5th this year is the Winthrop Balloon Roundup. Over two dozen hot air balloons come from across the Northwest to fly in the snow covered Methow Valley. Seattle Ballooning provides private and semi-private hot air balloon rides during the festival. Hot air balloons will launch Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning (weather permitting). Don’t worry, if the weather doesn’t work out, we will issue you a certificate to come fly with us in front of Mt. Rainier. During the day there are a ton of activities to partake in, and on Saturday evening the 4th you’ll get to partake in the annual hot air balloon glow in downtown. As a luxury hot air balloon company, we take a max of four guests at a time. That means, spots are extremely limited and fill up fast. Flights during the Winthrop Hot Air Balloon Festival are $400 per person.

Get a flight certificate for a private or semi-private hot air balloon flight directly in front of Mt. Rainier. We fly out of Kent or Auburn Washington, and fly towards Mt. Rainier and Lake Tapps. Imagine the excitement when your wife, husband, or kids open an envelope with a hot air balloon certificate inside. The recipient can then go onto our website at and book a reservation. Semi-private flights start at $275 per person and private hot air balloon rides start at $1100.

Easy huh?
