If Friday night dinners or Sundays at the movies are starting to become the status quo in your dating life, maybe it’s time to consider a hot air balloon ride in Edmonton, Alberta.
Driving through the gorgeous prairies and foothills of surrounding Edmonton is a cool experience that should be done at least once in one’s lifetime. But viewing the rolling hills and vast plains from 1,000 feet in the sky, within the perch of a hot air balloon, blows the driving experience away… literally and figuratively.
Moving mostly with the breeze and wind, your pilot will guide you high above the Alberta countryside for around an hour while the sun begins to set. The flight path will take you above Edmonton’s North Saskatchewan River valley and provide an unparalleled skyline view of downtown Edmonton, so be sure to bring your camera.
You can bring a snack and simply relax in the sky while enjoying the sensation of being lighter than air. And, if a hot air balloon ride wasn’t swanky enough, your ride ends with a toast of champagne.
Having seen Edmonton and surrounding area by sky, it makes sense to see a bit of the city by land. Cap off your day of adventure with dinner at one of Edmonton’s legendary indie-restaurants like Corso 32, RGE RD, or Bar Clementine. Each of these restaurants uses local ingredients and serves up creative and modern dishes that pair perfectly with reminiscing about your favourite landscapes and sights from the flight.
