Description

This scenic hot air balloon ride takes you over the Sonoran Desert at sunset. Majestic views include McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Camelback Mountain, and the surrounding Phoenix metro valley. At the end of your 1-hour aerial tour, celebrate with a traditional post-flight Champagne toast and gourmet hors d'oeuvres.

Two hours before sunset, meet your guide at a central location in Phoenix and board your off-road hot air balloon 'chase vehicle' to the launch site — the location will be determined by that evening's wind conditions. Take in the the beauty of the Sonoran Desert while the hot air balloon is inflated and prepared for launch.

You'll soar into the wild blue for about 1 hour. During this time, learn from your pilot-guide about Arizona history and the area's wildlife, including more than 1,000 species of flora and fauna. At altitude, look down at downtown and metropolitan Phoenix and hear tales of the local lifestyle. 

Just before landing the balloon, cast your gaze over the landscape against a vivid Sonoran Desert sunset while floating above McDowell Mountain Regional Park, Camelback Mountain, and more.

After landing and while the colors continue spreading over the mountains, your guide will pull out picnic baskets and tables for a Champagne toast and gourmet hors d'oeuvres. Once the crew has packed up the balloon and you have enjoyed this age-old tradition, you will be taken back to your meeting point.
