Hot Air Balloon Rides

Highlights / General details

Ballooning is a Nevada classic, providing the unforgettable feeling of warmth and glowing air as it rushes skyward into the early morning darkness. Your balloon comes to life and stands upright just seconds before whisking you into the heavens, rising up and up over the Sierra, and deep blue waters below. Faintly, the chatter of mountain quail, meadow larks, and blue jays fade as you drift over the dramatic contrasting scenery. Each breath brings the aroma of pine trees, alfalfa, and wood smoke softly lingering in the morning air. The mountains appear in all their splendor basking in the early morning sun as all to soon you drift slowly back to Earth.

Your balloon adventure starts at pre-dawn with our complimentary weather check followed by a shuttle pickup at any local hotel. Pickup times are pre-dawn and vary with the season. We help make it easy, providing weather checks, transportation and a continental breakfast en route.
