Hot Air Balloon Rides over the Arizona desert

Albuquerque and Phoenix make perfect starting places for these stunning balloon flights over the Sonoran Desert. Float over this beautiful landscape in the early morning or at sunset, on a private tour, or joining a group.


The particular climate of the Sonoran Desert means that a large variety of flora and fauna thrive here. It is the only place in the world where the Saguaro cactus grows in the wild. The biseasonal rainfall pattern allows many palms and wildflowers to form a beautiful carpet on the desert floor that is visible from your balloon flight.

A fleet of 40 balloons and the pilots have over 50,000 hours of flying experience, so you are in good hands. The post-flight-celebration includes delicious Prickly Pear Mimosas and other Arizonan delicacies. You will also receive a commemorative flight certificate and of course memories that last a lifetime.
