Hot Air Balloon Rides


category : Ballooning
Explore the Sonoran Desert from the basket of a hot air balloon. Each flight is a unique journey guided by the wind and the skills of your pilot.

At highest flight levels you will experience the panorama of the desert and mountain terrain stretching out for 100 miles in all directions. Changing altitude brings different wind currents used to "steer" the balloon. We float close to the ground to skim over the unique plant life such as the giant Saguaro cactus and Palo Verde Trees. We often see coyotes, jack rabbits, desert mule deer, and even javelinas...animals that are normally too shy to let you approach when you are walking on the ground.
