What To Expect

Enjoy pickup at select hotels on the Las Vegas Strip (additional cost) or make your own way to the departure point for the approximate 45-minute drive to the launch location.

Upon arrival in Pahrump, listen to a short safety briefing from your pilot and guide, then climb into the basket and set off. Soar over Pahrump’s residential areas and the Pahrump Valley; and enjoy unobstructed views of the desert landscapes and mountains.

After the flight, your pilot guides the balloon toward earth. On touchdown, enjoy a Champagne toast and receive a flight certificate.

Following this, return to Las Vegas for drop-off.

Bonus: During the winter months, you are able to choose between a sunrise departure.

Las Vegas (Pass By)

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!

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!

Sandy_C, Oct 2022
The whole experience was memorable. From the 3am van ride to seeing the sunrise over the mountains to landing in the middle of the road. It was absolutely the best ride/experience. The flight crew was great, but the pilot was hilarious and very personable. Book this trip you wont regret it! Cheers

Do this! You won't be disappointed
Stephen_W, Oct 2022
If like is you're looking for something different from helicopter trips to rhe canyons, then this is it! Pick up from our hotel was on time and the drive to the launch site is around an hour or so. Jean François is the pilot and has a great sense of humour, along with telling the history of ballooning and pointing out sites as we flew. Our flight was just over an hour and our experience matched the description perfectly. Recommended!

A Must Try Experience!!!
Zishen_F, Oct 2022
Great trip and very friendly staff. Our pilot Jeff was super funny and very professional. The balloon ride was very smooth and time had gone by so quick, we even had someone propose on our balloon ride which made the whole experience even more memorable! Although the start is super early in the morning but rest assured it is well worth it.

What an adventure!
Kylie_A, Jun 2022
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.
Exciting and memorable
