The outdoors: Hot Air Balloon Tours

Hang time in Scottsdale means taking to the skies to see the city and magnificent Sonoran Desert aloft from a hot air balloon. Sunrise and sunset hot air balloon tours give visitors the chance to see breathtaking vistas from hundreds of feet in the air, showcasing the city and desert when the light is just right. Talk about a photographer's dream! From these heights, roads ribbon off into the distance, saguaro cactus seem to march across the desert, and desert denizens like coyotes and cottontails can be seen in their natural habitat.

Of course, all good things must come to an end. But when the sturdy, handmade wicker baskets do come back down to earth, participants find a champagne ceremony uncorked in their honor in a tradition dating back to early French balloonists. For those in search of a wilder blue yonder, soaring provides another unforgettable airborne adventure. Riding wind currents in silence and serenity, clients are free to gaze as professional sailplane pilots navigate our friendly skies. Even more adventure awaits visitors interested in testing their skills in a vintage fighter plane with the aces at Fighter Combat International. There is nothing like a little air-to-air combat to bring out the Top Gun in anyone, especially in Scottsdale, where the sky is the limit.
