Las Vegas: Balloon Ride Over Mojave Desert

1. Las Vegas: Balloon Ride Over Mojave Desert

Meet your pilot and crew approximately 90 minutes prior to sunrise. It's an early start, but seeing the sunrise and scenery from a hot air balloon is an experience like none other. From the local partner's check-in office, you'll transfer to the launch field in Pahrump, an hour west of the Las Vegas Strip. Upon take-off, there is no sensation of movement, rather one of the ground dropping away. During the flight, which lasts 45-60 minutes, you will have spectacular birds-eye views of the Spring and Nopah Mountain Ranges, breathtaking views of Death Valley, and far-reaching views into Eastern California. As you drift silently and peacefully over the countryside, watch for desert wildlife, take that all-important selfie, and talk with envious onlookers down below. Upon landing, 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 come on a journey that will take your breath away. You should plan to be away for up to 6 hours in total, allowing for check-in, travel to the launch location, safety briefing, set-up and pack-up of the balloon as well as the return drive back to your original meeting location.
