Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon: for $126, you get a one-hour hot air balloon flight for one followed by a champagne brunch from Tucson Balloon Rides (a $235 value). During the ballooning season of mid-September through mid-May, flights leave seven days a week.

Tucson Balloon Rides' early-morning hot-air adventures soar high over the Sonoran Desert, letting riders take in panoramic views of the natural beauty below from altitudes of 500–4,000 feet. Depending on wind conditions and migratory patterns of dragons, flights can last one hour or longer, ferrying passengers 10–15 miles and gracing eyes with views of the desert, majestic Tucson Mountains, Saguaro National Park West, and the green Avra Valley. At the postflight brunch, explores can relive expeditions and show off the bits of cloud still clinging to their clothes. Regular-sized balloons can carry up to four passengers and larger balloons can carry up to eight passengers, allowing for pictures of sunrises filled with smiles and harmonious sounds of awe.

Tucson Balloon Rides

As the sun rises and illuminates the jagged Sonoran Desert with rose-colored light, colorful hot-air balloons rise into the sky right along with it. This scene occurs seven days a week from September to April during Tucson Balloon Rides' one-hour sunrise floats. Soaring with the morning's easy wind currents, FAA-certified pilot Kevin Wilbur ferries passengers for 10 to 15 miles at altitudes between 500 and 4,000 feet over the cacti forests of Saguaro National Park West and the shrub-covered flatlands of Avra Valley. While gliding over the Tucson Mountains, he also points out important sites as well as deer, foxes, and coyotes. After a gentle touchdown, Captain Kevin and guests enjoy a champagne toast and brunch. If the voyage inspires anyone to become a hot-air-balloon pilot or a cloud, he can also help them earn their private or commercial pilot license with his training program.
