Early Morning Hot Air Balloon Trips

Chiang Mai Hot Air Balloon


We are delighted to have teamed up with "Wind and Fire", offering professionally organised international standard hot air balloon tours. Departures "join in small group" every day in the early morning between 1 November and the end of February.

 Daily morning departures from Doi Saket, from November until February, based on a joint tour.
     The launch site is situated just a short 15 minute drive from the city center of Chiang Mai in Doi Saket.

     Balloon flights take place in the in the early hours each morning, before the air heats up. Meeting is typically one hour before sunrise at the launch site / Balloon Office. Our staff will tell you about the meeting time upon confirmation of the booking.

     You are welcome to enjoy a cup of coffee / tea while the balloon is being inflated. For those wanting to learn more about ballooning and "jump in" we welcome you to help the crew with the inflation, under the pilot's supervision.

     As the sun peeks over the horizon the balloon will gently lift off sky ward, into the calm breeze guiding it . The 'birds eye view is' surprisingly detailed. Guaranteed breathtaking panoramic views, of the distant mountains, terraced rice paddies, the lush green Ping River valley and rural villages, are sure to take your breath away. Visiting 'Unseen' Thailand by way of a gentle free-floating balloon is an experience of a lifetime. An aerial view of the many striking golden temples, typical for the Chiang Mai area, adds to the picturesque adventure.
    After a tranquil flight of approximately one hour, you will land wherever the wind has brought you. Upon landing you will be congratulated with a champagne style breakfast served at the landing site. The pilot, as a remembrance of the flight, will also award all passengers with a flight certificate.

     The full journey takes roughly 4 hours; balloon inflation, flight and breakfast.

     The balloon flight adventure includes :
  • transportation to/from your hotel in Chiang Mai,
  • Coffee or tea up on arrival at the launch site / Balloon Office,
  • a balloon flight,
  • an après-balloon champagne breakfast at the field landing site,
  • a balloon flight certificate
  • passenger insurance.
Note! In windy or otherwise marginal conditions the pilot may choose to postpone or cancel the flight, as safety is highly valued. Fortunately Thailand typically has perfect ballooning weather thus flights rarely need to be cancelled. In the event we do need to cancel a flight due to weather conditions, we will be delighted to reschedule the flight or issue a full refund.
