Tour overview

Embarking in 1975, our flagship balloonport located in Fox River Grove, Windy City boasts as among the oldest and safest hot air ballooning locations in the United States.

Considered an ideal vacation destination for Chicagoans in the late 1800s, historic Fox River Grove holds true to their reputation for the optimal weekend excursion away from the city. Float alongside the winding Fox River, catching aerial views of forest preserves and country farms as spotted cows dot the landscape. At the close of your trip, toast to your unforgettable experience with champagne and light hors d’eourves catered by the Great American Balloon Company!

Your adventure commences with a pre-flight briefing at the Brunch Café on Highway 22. Meet your pilot, learn about your flight, and ask our F.A.A. licensed and certified guides any questions you might have about your flight. Following your flight, we gather at the descent site for transportation back to our original location. Don’t forget your camera, and double the film you think you’ll need. You’ll want to capture each breathtaking moment of your flight to relive again and again.
