This was my second time up with Blue Ridge Balloon and I loved it even more this time around! Liana and Jim are incredibly skilled pilots and did a great job of explaining what to expect during the flight. They answered all of my questions...More
I contracted with BRB for a company event and it was a great experience. BRB picked my group up at the hotel and shuttled us to the launch site. They got the group involved with filling the balloon which created a team atmosphere. The balloon...More
I bought this as a Mother's Day present and it was the best experience! We absolutely loved it. Liana and Jim are a husband and wife balloonist team, which is very cool to begin with, but they are also just awesome human beings. It was...More

Big bang for the buck. Money well spent. Efficient, professional, skilled. Detailed information about what to expect. Amazing flight with lots of variety: super high, then guided past tree tops just close enough to pick a leaf, then skimming the reservoir. (Inside the reservoir felt...More
The owner seems to be a very good pilot, we flew right above trees a few feet away, skimmed water twice, and landed exactly where she predicted. Setting up the balloon and taking it down was part of the fun. The area looks very cool...More

Hi there, thanks for reaching out! Flights are about an hour, cost is $250 per person for the sunrise flight, and yes ballooning is extremely weather dependent. Roughly 40% (much higher this year, unfortunately) of our flights are cancelled or postponed due to wind, rain, and/or low clouds or visibility.

Blue Ridge launches from a few sites in town and will advise on where to meet for the flight. Many times it's from Boars Head Inn but the actual launch from there is dependent on wind conditions. I would recommend checking out Stay Charlottesville for accommodations. They have a great variety of vacation rentals in and around Charlottesville!
