Hot Air Balloon Rides Are In for birthdays And Anniversaries In 2016

For many people, a hot air balloon ride is a lifelong dream. It’s a staple on most bucket lists, used to celebrate life’s special occasions.

Often, Seattle couples spend their anniversaries dining at fancy restaurants, like The Herbfarm or SkyCity at the Space Needle. Instead, imagine a romantic hot air balloon ride for two:

It’s an hour before sunset and your hot air balloon pilot directs you to climb into the basket. The pilot pulls the burner, and a warm flame heats the air around you. He signals to the crew, and you lift into the air. Gravity almost ceases to exist, and the earth just moves away from you. You float inches above the treetops, and, out of the corner of your eye, you see Mt. Rainier in all it’s glory. The pilot pulls the burner, and the balloon climbs to 3500ft. You experience one of the world’s wonders– watching the sun set twice that evening.

You breathe in the fresh air and find yourself in awe of the beautiful Snohomish Valley. Toward the end of the flight, the pilot skims the basket along the water of the Snohomish river, and minutes later lands gently back on Mother Earth.

Upon landing, you nosh on French cheeses and fresh baguettes, and your pilot pulls a sword out to open an exquisite bottle of champagne with a single swish through the air. You toast to living life to the fullest and having more adventures together. Fancy restaurants are wonderful, but it is impossible to forget the experience of flying into the sunset together.

Is your anniversary coming up? Book your Seattle hot air balloon ride today, or call us to get a gift certificate for a later date at 206-588-9788.
