Feel the serenity as you enjoy picturesque 360-degree views for approximately one hour with the finest pilots.

  • Float over Pahrump's desert region by hot air balloon

  • Fly over Pahrump Valley, not Vegas Strip; with hotel transfers at extra cost
What to Expect
Make your own way to the departure point (hotel pickup is available for a nominal fee). From here, you will be driven to the Pahrump Valley where, after a short safety briefing, you’ll climb into the basket of your hot air balloon and take off. Your pilot will take you high in the sky for a hot air balloon ride over the rugged desert of the Pahrump Valley, located about an hour from Vegas and its Strip. The scenery from 10,000 feet (3,048 meters) up is simply stunning! Afterward, your pilot guides the hot air balloon back to land. When you touch down, share a Champagne toast, receive a flight certificate, and end your tour with a return to the meeting point. Bonus: During the winter months, select the sunset option to see the sun dip below the horizon and cast a golden glow across the valley.

This was a superb experience, floating in the air where it felt quiet and poetic. I felt safe even though it realistically might sound impossible. I would do it again and having bubbles after the ride was pretty fun too! If it helps, some of the people in the balloon expressed

All facets of the experience were well executed, the pilot was humorous and the ride itself was amazing. We experienced fantastic views, an incredibly calm and quiet trip (except for the burners, which could roast marshmallows 40 feet away). Definitely one to consider for your

If I could give a review on just the customer service, professionalism and actual flight time (60 minutes) it would be a full 5 stars. This was an amazing experience. Because we’ve ballooned before- I have to be honest the whole process is a little daunting with a ton of wasted

Thank you very much for your feedback! We always try and learn from every review and improve our processes wherever possible. We don't ever tell anyone they will be near the strip though, so we aren't sure where that came from. All of our advertising is very clear that we do not fly near the strip. If there is any way you can let us know where you saw that, we would appreciate it. Again, we will always take this back and try and improve our procedures and the quality of the experience so we sincerely thank you for the feedback! Buoyantly, Vegas Balloon Rides
