Description

Float gently through the air as dawn reveals its brilliant colors over the sand dunes, ranches, and mountainous ridges of Palm Desert. Admire a spectacular sunrise that takes your breath away, marveling at the arid landscapes of the Coachella Valley. Your entertaining and educational tour will incude the San Andres fault, the Salton Sea, the rise and fall of the Santa Rosa and San Bernardino mountains. Get a different perspective of the Coachella music festival grounds and vast Polo fields. Marvel in how many date palm orchards and other agriculture that grow in this beautiful desert.

Your adventure begins in the cool predawn hours at the launch site in Palm Desert. Receive a quick briefing on flight routines, hop inside the balloon's basket, and wait in anticipation. Feel the fire start to push the balloon up into the sky over the well-manicured estates surrounded by stunning mountain ranges of the region.

As you meander through the air, traveling on the gentle morning wind, take your camera out and snap some photographs of the ever-changing light. Witness the sky begin to brighten and display an array of colors as the day arrives. Enjoy the tranquility and gorgeous surrounding landscapes as they’re set aglow, and keep an eye out for native wildlife frolicking in the scrub before landing back on the ground. A celebratory glass of champagne with cheese and chocolates ends your experience on a high note before you're transferred back to the launch site. You'll receive a commemorative flight certificate with free souvenir pictures to remind you of your magical flight.

I had never been in a hot air balloon before. I have always wanted to go. We went on the early morning flight. It was beautiful out. The pilot and his Ground support were Friendly ,and informative. We had a wonderful time. I would Highly recommend doing this trip. One of the other passengers was not that thrilled about going. By the end of the trip he had totally changed is Mind! Check that off the bucket List!

Our pilot, John, was wonderful. His ground crew, Vince and Jerry, were very attentive and hard-working. It was our first balloon ride. It was amazing.
