Welcome to the Island Balloons website!
We fly hot air balloons all over Virginia. Our base is near historic Williamsburg and we also fly in
the Shenandoah Valley Winchester Virginia. This part of the Valley is
one of the most beautiful regions in Virginia, and still only about an hour
from the Washington metro area.

At a whim, we climb to several thousand feet and absorb a breathtaking
panoramic view of the entire Valley. We fly with the wind. Launch sites
are carefully chosen to send the balloon across the valley. Our faithful
chase truck follows to meet us at the end of the flight. Upon landing, the
crew packs the balloon in the back. Everybody piles in to return to the
launch site. We celebrate the flight’s completion with a traditional
champagne toast (sparkling cider for those who prefer). Then off we go about
