Day 1

Welcome Aboard! Join your fellow adventurers for an unparalleled experience in the Adirondack Mountains at the 48th Adirondack Balloon Festival. Our first destination is the Floyd Bennett Memorial Airport located in Queensbury, New York, where we will witness the amazing spectacle of 60 plus balloons launching (weather permitting). Share in the excitement and pageantry created by dozens of brilliantly colored balloons ascending into the sky. Later it's a short drive to Lake George, New York to check into The Tiki Resort, a resort hotel overlooking the Adirondack Mountains, for the next two nights. Relax and enjoy this secluded, serene, Polynesian themed resort nestled in a breathtaking Lake George location. Tonight, we are treated to a delicious dinner at the hotel's restaurant.


Day 2

There are two ways to view the balloons . . . stay in bed and hope they sail over the hotel, or rise very early and return to the airport with your tour manager and driver to witness this morning's balloon launch, (weather permitting). Later return to the hotel for a delicious buffet breakfast before we meet our step-on guide, and depart for a tour of Lake George. Included on our tour is a photo-stop at Prospect Mountain for a spectacular view of the Adirondacks. Next, we board the Lac du Saint Sacrement for a 2-hour buffet lunch & entertainment cruise on Lake George. Relax and enjoy your time on the water. The cruise features a narrated history of the lake, takes you past secluded islands, tranquil bays, and provides a unique view of the luxurious mansions along "millionaire's row". Later we return to the hotel where you will have some leisure time to sit, relax and freshen up before going out to the airport to witness our final balloon launch, (weather permitting). We return to our hotel for a delicious dinner, and a good night's sleep.
