Directions

Where are we going today?

Is it a bird? Is it a plane...no...it's High 5 Ballooning that will take the whole family on an experience they will never forget - right up into the sky! 

High 5 Ballooning is an amazing experience that shows you incredible views of the beauty of New Hampshire. Did you think New England could be so adventurous! 

It's an exciting experience from the moment you see that basket, and hear the loud noises of the flames shooting up into the balloon. And then there's lift off! 

The whole family will float through the sky like a bird on this amazing family aerial adventure - and you can be sure you won't be forgetting this experience any time soon!

As you float, you will see amazing views of the Atlantic Ocean, the Merrimack River, the White Mountains and even the skyline of Boston. They even have in-flight music to entertain you just like on a plane! It's quite a calming experience as you are carried along the gentle winds.

Kids - what can you spot below? Perhaps you can see some of the wildlife that call the area home? The balloon might even pass over a beautiful lake, and if it descends low enough you might even feel that you will be able to touch the water! (Sometimes it's fun to try and catch a leaf from a nearby tree as a souvenir of your flight!

This all year round activity is an amazing experience no matter what the season. It's an amazing sight to see the snow on the mountains, just as amazing as it is to see the fall foliage. 

Ballooning fun for the whole family!

    Tony and his crew at High 5 Ballooning are an extremely talented and professional bunch.

    From the second I spoke to High 5 Ballooning, I was greeted with the utmost professionalism. Having flown with other companies in the past, I can say I felt extremely safe under the care of Tony's experience, along with the pristine state of his equipment.

    There is a very nice soundtrack that plays along with your flight, and Tony is extremely entertaining, which was a lovely added bonus.

    This was awesome. We loved it. The views were beautiful. The takeoff and landing were smooth, safe and yet exciting; and our wonderful pilot made the whole experience memorable from the training session to the celebration picnic at the end and even handed out keepsake certificates. We can't wait to do it again.

    I came a long way to visit family who were taking a balloon ride. They talked me into going with them........WOW - this was the best part of my visit. The entertaining owner (Tony) was unbelievably professional, funny, and excellent at his job. I was upset when the time was UP and we had to go.......OH NO!!!......take me back again SOON!!!!

    I had an amazing time with high 5 ballooning. The views were spectacular, the service was excellent and the staff was friendly and considerate. We got to help set up the balloon which made the experience that much more exciting.

    After the ride there was food and drinks waiting for us and a full staff to break down the balloon while we ate. I hope that I can find the time to go next year or maybe during the fall foliage season.

    Thanks again for the great experience.

    What a great way to be disrespected and spend some dough. The owner made a sexual comment towards my wife upon meeting her, WOW PROFESSIONAL! (This really set our moods for the experience - VERY UNCOMFORTABLE and UPSET!) It was unfortunate that we spent our money with this company and now felt "stuck" spending time with him-BUT two balloons were being flown that day-we rode with the other pilot. The ride itself was fine. Most of the time is spent setting up and taking down the balloon. And not only do you get to watch, they incorporate their clients...Read More

We were also served to a delicious picnic after the flight which was such a nice touch-a little breakfast and champagne to celebrate!

I highly recommend this company for your hot air ballooning needs-especially if you are looking for talent, professionalism, and a great time.

(This really set our moods for the experience - VERY UNCOMFORTABLE and UPSET!) It was unfortunate that we spent our money with this company and now felt "stuck" spending time with him-BUT two balloons were being flown that day-we rode with the other pilot. The ride itself was fine. Most of the time is spent setting up and taking down the balloon. And not only do you get to watch, they incorporate their clients into the work day. And if you happen to work hard in a labor type job and want to relax on the weekend, they will insist that you help them clean up the equipment. (The owner's balloon landed first, disassembled first and left the landing site first...crew and all.) Nothing better than spending money to work!!
After they return you to the parking lot, they open a bottle of champagne and you get to drink in public right on RT111!!! YEAH. This would be fine if I was still 21 or if drinking was important to me. Again WOW PROFESSIONAL!!
If service and professionalism is important to you--GO ELSEWHERE!
