Itinerary
Pass By:  
Las Vegas
Passengers will meet their pilot and crew approximately 90 minutes prior to sunrise and be transported to their launch location in Pahrump. While that does make for an early morning, launching in a hot air balloon while the morning sun simultaneously continues to make its way above the peaks of the desert mountains, is an experience like none other!
Stop At:  
Pahrump
Guests will be transported from the check-in office to the launch field in Pahrump, just an hour west of the Las Vegas Strip. During your flight, which lasts approximately 45-60 minutes, you will have a spectacular birds eye view of the Spring and Nopah Mountain Ranges, expansive and breathtaking views of Death Valley, and far-reaching sights into Eastern California. As you drift silently and peacefully over the countryside, you can watch for desert wildlife, take that all-important selfie, and talk with envious onlookers down below. Upon landing, passengers participate in a traditional Champagne toast, hear the story of how hot air ballooning began, and how it led to modern day aviation as we know it. Hot air ballooning is truly a bucket list item, and something you must do during your visit to Las Vegas. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the Strip and join us on a journey that will simply take your breath away!

We had the most amazing time on this balloon ride! The early morning was VERY early, but the experience made it all worthwhile. All of the team were a pleasure to be around - they really love their jobs and it shows. Can't recommend this highly enough - the views were spectacular. One of our group is scared of heights and was terrified to go up, but hasn't stopped raving about it ever since! Thank you.
