Explore the romantic world of hot air ballooning in South Carolina. Venues from Charleston to Greenville to Anderson, SC, offer everything from private sunset tours to group tethered rides with views of South Carolina you only get from the basket of a balloon.

Charleston Hot Air Balloons can take you up in a balloon for a fantastic view of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Float in the air for up to an hour, and at the end of the ride you can toast to the beauty of the sights with a glass of champagne. It’s a peaceful getaway for an anniversary celebration or a birthday treat or even as a company team-building event.

For views of the mountains in South Carolina’s Upstate, escape to Greenville with Hot Air Balloons of Greenville. Experience a hot air balloon ride over the city itself or enjoy a tethered ride at a birthday celebration or family adventure. Before the ride over the city, you can discover everything that goes into launching a balloon before actually loading into the basket for the flight. The flight over the city accommodates up to eight people, and whether you ride with strangers or with friends, you’re sure to be blown away by the uninhibited 360-degree view.

You can also organize a tethered flight with Hot Air Balloons of Greenville to add some fun and color to any special event. It’s a great choice if you are hosting a large group because tethered flights are a simple up-and-down trip — giving all your guests an opportunity to float into the skies and share in the high-flying experience.

If you have a more specific flight in mind somewhere else in the state, check out South Carolina Balloons to plan a trip that fits your exact needs. With certified hot air balloon pilots around the state, South Carolina Balloons helps you find the perfect match for your ballooning dreams.

And don’t forget to plan a weekend in Anderson, South Carolina to experience one of the Upstate’s most exciting festivals, Balloons Over Anderson. Each October, balloonists from around the United States travel to Anderson for this one-of-a-kind festival, where visitors can take tethered or free-flight balloon rides with seasoned professionals.

Use your imagination as you plan your voyage because a hot air balloon adventure in South Carolina offers an array of views like none other.
