- ABOUT THE SPOT
Hot Air Ballooning in Saint Ignace, Mackinac County, Michigan USA
Imagine yourself sailing across the sky in a brightly colored hot air balloon, floating above the treetops, lakes and streams. Hot air ballooning cannot be compared to any other forms of flight. While the balloon drifts with the wind, you will be able to look down the picturesque landscape of Michigan.
Your ballooning experience in Michigan can start either at sunrise or sunset. When you reach the takeoff spot, your thrill begins immediately with the inflation of the hot air balloon. As soon as the safety checks are finished, your flight begins. Most hot air balloon flights reach 500 ft/152 m to 3000 ft/914 m above ground and last approximately one hour. However, the experience is not over, as the traditional champagne toast awaits you upon landing.
