Balloon Rides over Yorkshire and Lincolnshire

Balloon Rides is York's longest running balloon operator, created by founder Tom Donnelly's unbounded enthusiasm for the sport of hot air ballooning. His 30 plus years of experience in both the flying and the manufacture of hot air balloons, put Balloon Rides at the forefront of modern hot air ballooning. With Tom retired and making just the occasional flight by gas balloon, Balloon Rides is now part of Adventure Balloons, another founding member of hot air balloon rides in the UK. This provides you with the option to take your balloon flight from even more locations should you wish.

Our pilots have flown television and film celebrities, have added to their experience making a number of 'adventure' flights crossing the English Channel, over the Alps and flights in many other countries such as Australia, Africa, Canada and most of the European countries. Hardly surprising then that we offer to you unmatched expertise, the best equipment, an enviable safety record, excellent service and above all, enthusiasm for our sport. Indeed, after the flight you will have no difficulty getting our pilots to tell you a few ballooning stories.
