Balloon and the moon

Enjoy the amazing landscape as the balloon glides over the Tucson Mountains and Saguaro National Park West on Tucson’s northwest side.  Each journey is unique, combining low level views of the beautiful desert landscape and spectacular panoramas from higher elevations.  On most flights numerous wildlife are spotted, including javelina, deer, bobcats, rabbits, foxes and red-tailed hawks.  Fly as low as 500 feet and as high as 2500 feet above ground, so you can get the very most out of your ballooning experience.

After landing, each flight is celebrated with a delicious continental brunch and premium champagne (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) served in beautiful crystal flutes.  You will hear the history of hot air ballooning, receive digital pictures of your ride (taken from the chase vehicle as it follows your adventure) and a frame-able flight certificate.
