Canandaigua Lake, the area rolling hills and the surrounding Finger Lakes region provide a beautiful backdrop for a hot air balloon ride!

We offer several launch sites in Canandaigua. From the air, all command an impressive view of Canandaigua Lake and the surrounding Finger Lakes area. Our standard launch site from this area is from the Chalet of Canandaigua, a top-rated B&B. From there or, depending on weather conditions, from one of our surrounding area sites, we launch your Finger Lakes balloon ride experience!

Centrally located in the heart of the Finger Lakes, Canandaigua is home to CMAC, Roseland Water Park, the New York State Wine and Culinary Center, and great B&B’s, including the Chalet of Canandaigua.

Be sure to ask about our customized tour and limo packages!

Finger Lakes (Canandaigua) flight availability

We schedule morning and evening flights Monday through Saturday, year-round.  While booking in advance is highly recommended, we can often accommodate passenger groups even at short notice.  By using “small” four-passenger balloons, we are proud to offer a personal experience.  When you book with Liberty Balloon Company, you join no more than three other people in the gondola; or, you may reserve the entire balloon for your party with a private flight.  Because Carroll (dad), Lance (older son) and Lee (younger son) all are FAA-certified commercial hot air balloon pilots, we can fly up to three balloons per flight period.  So if you have a large group, we will accommodate up to twelve people for a ride.
