Lou has this super fun adventure dialed in for families/couples/singles. He's a skilled pilot with a great deal of knowledge of the area. His crew is very responsible and takes great care of patrons. Trip worth every penny. Fully exceeded expectations.

Awesome experience! It was our first time in a hot air balloon, but hopefully not our last. Lou was a great host and pilot. If ever in Moab again, would definitely do this again.

I agree with Nancy. Check with Lou. I know we were very tight with 16 people in the basket and the landing was such that we turned on our side, which could make it difficult for a person in a wheel chair. But, it never hurts... More

If you call or email Canyonlands, they answer all questions that you have. I think that would be the best way to find out the answer to that.
