Hot Air Balloon Rides in Phoenix

Phoenix, Arizona is a dream location for a hot air balloon ride for locals and visitors alike, with mind-blowing sunrises and sunsets, expansive saguaro dotted mountain ranges, and native animals like jackrabbits, coyotes, and burros scurrying about, there is no better way to take in views (and snap amazing photos!) of our beautiful city. Boasting optimal flying conditions with over 300 days of sunshine a year, Phoenix/Scottsdale is home to the most flyable days per year of anywhere in the country for hot air ballooning, making it one of the most desirable places to take flight.

Breathtaking Views

While in flight, soaring 2,000-5,000 feet in the air, the expansiveness of the Arizona Sonoran Desert is overwhelmingly humbling. In what feels so picturesque, the views almost feel unreal. In the distance, points of interest like Downtown Phoenix, Camelback Mountain, Lake Pleasant and State Farm Stadium (home to the Arizona Cardinals) are commonly seen, as the pilot shares the history of our fascinating city, and points out local wildlife and plant life.

Not only are the views breathtaking, the calm and peacefulness of ballooning is unparalleled. Floating with the wind, the journey is a smooth one, you’ll hardly realize you’ve left the ground. “Riding on a cloud” and “a magic carpet ride” are phrases that have been used to describe the feeling of gently floating thousands of feet in the air among the clouds. With virtually no background noise, the only sounds you will hear up, up and away are the clicks of cameras, and rustling of desert animals below, as well as the occasional use of the burner by your pilot.
