Overview
Most Sonoran Desert off-roading tours may take you off-the-beaten path, but they still don’t offer 360-degree views of the stunning desert landscape. During this hot air balloon ride from Phoenix, take to the air for the best vantage point of the area. And, as a bonus, see the sunrise, too. After your flight, reminisce about the beauty of the Sonoran Desert over a Champagne breakfast.
What to Expect
Meet for this Sonoran Desert sunrise hot air balloon ride in central Phoenix. Your guide drives you to the launch site.

Listen to a short safety briefing before your trip and then climb aboard the basket with your other group members. Your pilot flies up into the air as you enjoy 360-degree views over the Sonoran Desert. Learn about the wildlife and history of the desert from your guide.

Once you land back on the ground, sit down at picnic tables and fill up on breakfast hors d'oeuvres, accompanied by Champagne.

Your Sonoran Desert sunrise hot air balloon ride ends with a ride back to the original meeting spot.

Really really cool

Short 30 min drive out of town. About one hour up in balloon up to 7,000 feet. Great views. Minimal wind. Great staff. Champagne toast after landing. Enjoyed the experience. The balloon goes up and down very gently

Great experience!

Our host Patrick was great and kept us entertained and the whole experience was great. We were greeted nicely in the morning and very informative and entertaining experience. Nice views of the Phoenix valley and early morning sunrise.
