What you can expect

Board a nine-story-tall hot air balloon and let the calm breeze carry you over Phoenix and the Sonoran Desert. Enjoy a champagne toast to celebrate the morning's adventure as you sit back and relish the views of diverse wildlife, dramatic landscapes, and the rich variety of nature.

The adventure begins as you step inside the uniquely woven basket, hear the burner ignite to begin the inflation process, and gradually lift off into the open sky. Feel the elation of drifting 5,000 feet (1,524 m) over the vast open desert.

Fly confidently with FAA-certified pilots knowledgeable in both hot air balloon safety and the nature of the Sonoran Desert. Here you find the only place in the world where the famous saguaro cactus grows in the wild, reaching 15 – 50 feet (4.5 – 15 m) in height during their 150-year lifespans.

Continue sailing through the Arizona sky as you sweep just over tree tops, float past the Four Peaks, and watch the sunrise paint the sky a golden hue. Keep an eye out for desert wildlife such as coyotes and native birds such as Gila woodpeckers, purple martins, and gilded flickers.

Your balloon ride allows for breathtaking aerial photo opportunities that capture the Sonoran Desert's highlights from an unparalleled view. The adventure wraps up with a refreshing pastry breakfast once you've set foot back on the ground.
