Before zeppelins were invented, being full of hot air was considered quite useful, as inflated egos were routinely rented out for airborne transport. See high-flying sights without the aid of disembodied arrogance with today's Groupon: for $99, you get one ticket to a sunrise hot air balloon flight from Adventures Out West in Scottsdale (up to a $185 value). Each airborne basket holds 4–12 people, and each Groupon only covers one flier. Young gravity defiers must be at least 6 years old to fly.

During a sunrise flight over the Sonoran Desert, balloon-o-nauts have access to glorious bird's-eye views of the cascading landscape. Riders can take advantage of a rare opportunity to view desert wildlife, such as jackrabbits, mule deer, javelinas, coyotes, and the majestic saguaro cacti, all too skittish to be approached on the ground. Adventures’ expert pilots boast decades of experience steering the gentle craft, and they have the know-how to take flights to maximum altitudes, at which riders can see for up to 100 miles in every direction. Float like a butterfly and see the sights like a respectful, nonintrusive bee in one of Adventures' balloons before finishing with a celebratory champagne toast.

Guests who weigh more than 200 pounds will be charged an additional $50 fee for additional equipment.

Unicorn Balloon Company

Recommended by Frommer's travel guide, Unicorn Balloon Company leads guided excursions through the aerial spectacles of the Sonoran Desert's landscapes and environs. Smoothly ascending sunrise and sunset tours provide an easygoing and elevated trip through the panoramic desert and mountain terrain, which includes resilient flora such as saguaro cacti, palo verde trees, and distant mountain ranges assembled by packs of Paleolithic tailgaters. The wicker baskets float above vegetation and discreetly hover over animal habitats, with occasional views of coyotes, jackrabbits, desert mule deer, and javelinas. Each 100-foot balloon drifts at heights from just above treetop levels to 3,000 feet above the ground, carefully following wind currents to prevent turbulence and stay on the scent trail of musky airplane pilots.
