Hot air balloon flights are meant to take in panoramic views and vistas of the surrounding natural beauty. That is why Verde Valley Balloons flies in the Cottonwood area, in the Prescott National Forest. They are 20 miles south of Sedona, which provides extraordinary views (depending upon wind directions) of Mingus Mountain, the Verde River, the Prescott Forest, Tuzigoot National Monument, Jerome, Cottonwood and even sites as far away as Sedona and the San Francisco Peaks at the base of the Colorado Plateau near Flagstaff. You simply can’t get these vistas anywhere else. Plus, you can save money … click to see our Verde Valley Balloons Coupons, Discounts and Deals page.
Additionally, because of where they fly, they can fly more days per year and in more varied wind directions than their competitors closer in to Sedona because of the geography of their flying area. This allows them to keep their costs lower and pass those savings on to you. Of course, you could pay almost $50 more per person to fly in closer to Sedona if you wish, but why would you do that when you can enjoy the vistas from up high where they fly and then enjoy a jeep tour to get up close to the Red Rocks area and have a more enjoyable and adventurous day at almost the same price as their competitor charge just for a balloon ride.
Verde Valley Balloons – The Experience
Verde Valley Balloons is the only Balloon Ride Operator permitted by the Prescott National Forest to operate within the forest and they do everything they can to be good stewards of that land. The flights all begin with them picking the guests up at a central location in Cottonwood. Then you are transported to one of their launch sites where the day’s adventure begins. After the balloon is inflated, you board the aircraft and begin your magic carpet adventure. During the flight, the pilot will share information and stories about the unique history of the local area and the history of ballooning. After landing, the pilot will lead guests in a traditional champagne (or non-alcoholic) toast before returning you to your car to continue your adventurous day.
AS Leonardo Da Vinci said “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
