Welcome to our Ithaca launch location of Southern Tier Balloon Tours. Our Ithaca flights offer a spectacular view of Cayuga Lake, Ithaca College, and Cornell University in the Finger Lakes region of New York.

Hot air balloon rides in the Finger Lakes region of Ithaca, NY depart every morning and evening, that is twice a day, weather permitting.

Flights from Ithaca, NY are like no other with the view of the 40 mile long and two mile wide Cayuga Lake at the Northern Tip of Ithaca. Flights meet at Stewart Park on Gibbs Dr right off Highway 13 and are 45 - 70 minutes in the air, but make sure to plan for 3-4 hours for the whole experience. (Meet up, flight, and drive back).

Stewart Park offers plenty of parking for everybody in your party including family and friends that would like to tag along or just watch us take off. After meeting at Stewart Park we will go through some info on what to expect during the balloon ride and then drive to our launch location which is different every day depending on what the wind is doing for that day.

Hot air balloons cannot steer and so we move with the wind (yes this is safe, it is actually the first form of flight and we have been doing it for years). We will pick an optimal launch site to make sure your balloon flight is nothing less than spectacular.

Have a question or two about safety? Email, text or call us and we will get those questions answered promptly. We have thousands of hours of flight experience with a perfect safety record and we will do our best every flight to maintain that record.

Come join us today for a flight in the beautiful Finger Lakes region of Ithaca, NY!
