Imagine floating over Yamhill County’s beautiful wine country in one of the greatest adventures of a lifetime. Between April 1 and October 1, you can see Oregon from a wonderful and unique perspective! Your adventure will begin one-half hour before dawn at Sportsman Airpark in Newberg, Oregon. You’ll have the opportunity to be involved in the inflation process of the balloons or just relax and watch as the huge lengths of rainbow colored nylon are unrolled. Watch as the crew holds the balloon tight while industrial sized fans breathe life into the fabric. Finally the propane jets are ignited and the balloons rise ten stories into the morning sky. Then you’ll take to the sky to enjoy the view as you fly over the beautiful countryside. Conclude your adventure with the balloonist’s traditional full catered breakfast and complimentary flight souvenir.

For more information, or to book your adventure, contact Vista Balloon Adventures at 503-625-7385 or 800-622-3309.
