500ft/152m to 3000ft/914m
Weather condition:

Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, St. Ignace is the connecting node between the Upper and Lower Peninsula at the northern end of the Mackinac Bridge. Saint Ignace is the second-oldest city founded by Europeans in Michigan and the third oldest continuously inhabited city in the U.S. It is inhabited by Native Americans, Europeans and is rich in history. With its pristine beaches, water filled activities, entertainment, history and annual events, St. Ignace is a great vacation destination for all.

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.
