Hot Air Ballooning


You haven’t seen the red rocks and incredible desert of Tucson until you’ve seen it from the sky. The city is home to established, reputable hot air balloon companies like Fleur de Tucson Balloon Tours. The oldest, most experienced company in the city offers a number of packages to choose from—or you can customize your own for a special event from anniversaries to birthday outings and proposals.

Some balloon companies take 8 – 10 people per balloon, but Fleur caps each ride at just 4 – 5 people. Pre-packaged rides range from 60 – 75 minutes and whisk riders across the city to see Saguaro National Park West and the Tucson Mountains. At 10 – 18 miles round trip and elevations ranging from 500 – 2,500 feet, balloon season starts October 1 and you don’t want to miss it.

Up, Up and Away

Easily accessible from Tucson hotels, you can choose to upgrade to a continental brunch paired with champagne served in crystal flutes (non-alcoholic is also available). Choose from up to 20 digital pictures of your experience to remember the experience, and even get a frame-able flight certificate. Although flights are just over one hour, allow for three hours in totality.

Rates start at $245 per person, private rides for two are $800, and children are $175. If you want to see Tucson like never before, schedule your flight today. A sunset or sunrise tour is the perfect addition to a desert getaway.
