Ballooning in the Hudson Valley of New York is about as close to the NYC area as you can get with a hot air balloon. Due to airspace restrictions and congested cities in the tri-state area, Middletown is a perfect blend of beauty and convenience. We are only an hour from New York City and much closer to Rockland, Westchester, Yonkers, Putnam, Dutchess, Ulster and Sullivan Counties. I do not know of any balloon ride operators in Nassau or Suffolk Counties of Long Island. What I can tell you is that we have flown thousands of Long Islanders and they have all told me it was well worth the trip!
Our views of the Hudson Valley are worth the trip from anywhere! We have rolling green hills and beautiful farms. We fly over small towns, lakes and streams, and there is no shortage of deer or red tailed hawks! What a great way to enjoy nature. A balloon ride is not something you'll do every weekend, so do it right! Give us a call today!
