Float among the clouds with local favorite, Hot Air Expeditions!

Your morning begins with a viewing of the inflation of the hot air balloon, where you'll see just how big the balloons really are as they come to life! Once inflated, you are invited to join your pilot in our luxurious, oversized basket for the adventure of a lifetime! During your approximate 60 minute hot air balloon ride you'll soar as high as 5,000 feet for a beautiful overview of the valley, and the pilot will share the history of the area along with the various flora and fauna. Upon landing, you are welcomed back to earth with chilled flutes of champagne along with a continental breakfast. You are presented with a commemorative flight certificate and whisked back to reality.

If only time could stand still!

Private + shared morning hot air balloon rides depart daily, year-round from the Marana Airport.

FAA Certified // Insured // Uniformed // Hotel Transfers Available. Proudly ballooning in Arizona for over 29 years!
