About Us

Rainbow Balloons is the Hot Air Ballooning Family of Calgary

Balloons Over Calgary by Rainbow Balloons has been flying Calgary and international skies since 1979, and is the longest running family owned hot air balloon ride tour company in Canada.

It is a family business that began as an anniversary gift from our kids. It was so much fun, we bought our own balloon and started our company. This was back in the very early days of ballooning in Alberta. With more than 30 years of experience and countless flights, we’re proud to be the most popular family balloon ride adventure activity in Southern Alberta.

Many of our balloons have flown out of the Calgary Stampede grounds and over the Calgary Stampede Parade. We have participated in and even won balloon races across Canada, the United States, Australia and Africa. We have even crewed for international balloons breaking world records!

Our licensed pilots have over 1,000 hours of flying time each and are amazing to watch! They are also full of interesting information that gives your flight an extra dimension.

Our goal is to give you the same wonderful experience we had back in 1979, at the birth of ballooning in Calgary.

Everything we do is with your personal safety, enjoyment, and satisfaction in mind.

We are a Calgary based family business, locally owned and operated. When you call us, you talk to us here in Calgary. Our pilots are Calgary based too, so they know the weather and the country side intimately.

Rainbow Balloons is a longtime Calgary based family business that uses only experienced pilots who they personally know very well.
