anniversary flight
  John -- Aug 21, 2008 03:31 pm
We flew with them for our 25th anniversary in june of '08 and were treated to comments on local history and how hot air ballooning was controlled ( not a lot of control). We had a great time and really enjoyed the gourmet brunch afterwards. We would enthusiastically reccomment this adventure to our friends! ... more

We felt like kings
  Babara -- Feb 14, 2008 06:38 pm
We arrived for our flight and from the very start were having fun. Our pilot had a good time and made sure we had a good time. I did not know that the flight would be so much fun!

The breakfast was first class and delicious! Can't say enough good things about these guys ... more

Details of Hot Air Balloon Rides above Northern California, Rancho Murieta, California Ballooning Details for Hot Air Balloon Rides above Northern California

Active Adventure


Located 40 minutes East of Sacramento. We offer flights above The American River Valley and historic Coloma. Unlike most ballooning locations where flying over sprawling fields is the order of the day, we offer a true adventure. Skimming big trees with the basket, dropping into the river for a little Whitewater Ballooning (yes, right in the water) is the order of our day!

Unlike most balloon companies we do not put six to ten people in a giant basket. We limit our baskets to four passengers at a time. This allows for a more personal experience. We pride ourselves on a quality experience for our passengers. We are not interested in being the biggest operator in the business, just the best.

Typical Day


We meet just before sunrise. The flight starts at sunrise and lasts approximately one hour. The flight is followed by a speedy retrieval and drive back to our launch site for a Champagne toast and gourmet French breakfast. After breakfast you will be given on official "Aeronauts" certificate with a photo of your flight.

Expect the entire adventure to last approximately three to four hours.

Age range, type of group


Ballooning is for people of all ages! However, we do no recommend bringing children under five years of age. The noise and ten foot flame of the burner tends to upset younger children. It is also very loud for young ears.

Sleeping and meals


The area has many B&B's there are also some inexpensive hotels available approximately 30 minutes from our launch site. Contact us for a recommendation.

Restrictions


Cell phones are not permitted to be on during flight. They do not interfere with any of our flight instruments. We just don't like disturbing the tranquility of the flight. No smoking in or near the balloon.

Rates


Rates start at $175.00 per person for groups of four.

Other Information


We offer unique advertising solutions for businesses as well as tethered balloons for events. We can fly up to 48 passengers an hour during a tether flight. Contact us for more information.

Tim Nelson (View My Profile)
Sky Drifters Group Hot Air Balloon Rides are a great and affordable way to get in the air above the Sacramento Valley. We do our best to create a fun and exciting environment for everyone in the basket.

Unlike your typical “romantic” flight, where the pilot tries to been seen or heard as little as possible, group rides are all about having fun. The pilot is full of good flying stories, jokes and is there to have a good time with the balloon riders.

This hot air balloon flight is tailored to the desires of our passengers and can be anything from very relaxing to quite exciting. Just tell your pilot what kind of experience you are looking for and he will do his best to provide the kind of flight you want. The Flight is followed with a French Champagne toast!

Expect the balloon ride and post-flight picnic to last three to four hours. Upon occasion we do run late. Please let us know of any potential scheduling conflicts before the flight. We will do our best to get you back on time.

Costs are based on the number of people flying. If you are booking a single person you must pick a day others are flying to ensure you will fly on the date you choose. We also offer a stand-by option if you are local to the area. Call or visit our website for details.
