Hot Air Ballooning in Phoenix
If you’ve never been on a hot air balloon ride before, I'd highly recommend it. Early morning ballooning in Phoenix with Hot Air Expeditions is one of the best ways to experience Arizona. An expert pilot will guide your balloon up, up and away to heights of 5,000 feet (at multiple speeds based on wind patterns), as you soak up 360-degree scenic views of the rugged Sonoran Desert terrain and distant mountain peaks. While peacefully floating through the air, peek down below to awe at indigenous animals—including jackrabbits, deer and coyotes—as well as a variety of prickly cacti species.




The hour-long flight was sensational. And after safely landing back on the ground, my morning concluded with a personalized first flight certificate and a gourmet Champagne breakfast. Cheers to that!
