Balloon Flight over The Grand Canyon
Even if you have seen the Grand Canyon, we're betting you've never seen it like this. Indeed, few people have.... more less
In this unbelievable experience, you will step into a colorful hot air balloon and fly high above one of the world's greatest natural treasures for a breathtaking perspective typically available only to the birds. Rise with the sun and float among the clouds with veteran pilot Chris Dewhirst as he takes you to 12,000 feet (so high you will temporarily don an oxygen mask), then let the wind carry you gently and smoothly across the majestic chasm. It's a dazzling and sublime experience fit for a postcard, and a once-in-a-lifetime trip that offers an unparalleled view of nearly two billion years of Earth's geological history.
After landing you'll join Chris for dinner to debrief your epic day, and hear his stories from an incredible ballooning career including flights over Mount Everest in the Himalayas and Mount Blanc in the Alps. This is the way the Grand Canyon was meant to be experienced. With nothing but the Colorado River winding below and the blue Arizona sky above, this is truly an adventure unlike any other.
