Hot Air Expeditions Balloon Ride

DAY 1: Depart Before Sunrise

Your journey begins with the viewing of the inflation of the balloon, where you will first get a glimpse of how large these gentle giants are up close and personal! Upon the conclusion of the inflation, your pilot will whisk you away in the basket for your approximate one hour flight. During the breathtaking journey, you will enjoy floating at different elevations, from up to 5,000 feet in the air for a gorgeous overview of the Sonoran Desert, to within feet of the ground and the giant saguaro cacti that scatter the valley of the sun, to catch a glimpse of local wildlife and plant life. Upon landing you are greeted in the traditional manner with flutes of chilled champagne and cuisine catered by the award-winning Vincent’s on Camelback.
