Welcome to Sky Drifters Ballooning!

Hot Air Balloon Rides in the Spectacular Sierra Nevada Foothills. Located just 30 minutes East of Sacramento in Rancho Murieta. Flying daily! Launching the balloon from the banks of the Consumes River is a spectacular experience and a true ballooning adventure. Unlike many other popular ballooning locations, we will be flying over rivers, lakes, creeks, tall trees and stunning scenery. In the early morning hours it is not unusual to see a variety of both ground and airborne wildlife. With stunning views of the Deer Creek Hills Preserve and thousands of acres of protected oak forests, vernal pools and wildlife, this location is one of Northern California’s best secrets. With limited vehicular access to these areas, flying a balloon over them provides a rare view of some spectacular places! We also fly a variety of other sites throughout Northern California and the Sierra Nevada’s. Come out and experience one of Northern California’s most spectacular hot air balloon ride locations!
"Once you have flown, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you long to return." - Leonardo da Vinci
