Emerge from the comfort of your Caliente Springs hotel room or suite and see the desert from a falcon's point of view on a hot air balloon tour. Visitors can select from a variety of different flights. Whether traveling with family, friends or your romantic sweetheart, this is one tour you don't want to miss out on.
SoCal Balloon Tours
It all started in 1982, when Thomas and Kami Brundage began hot air ballooning through the Rocky Mountains. With a growing adoration for the sport, they moved to Palm Springs in 1995 where the weather was beautiful year round to open up SoCal Balloon Tours. Ever since, they have lofted hundreds of visitors into the skies over the Palm Springs desert.
An All-Romance Adventure
For those looking to enhance their romance, the Sweetheart Flights takes two to the skies at sunset or sunrise. Flight includes champagne, an honorary first flight certificate, free pick-up from a number of hotels, and a picnic tote equipped with silverware, wine glasses, plates, cotton napkins, a corkscrew and a spiffy cheese knife.
Family Time Amongst the Clouds
For those traveling with family, a picnic tote for four is offered in a variety of colors. Choose from burgundy & Bordeaux, navy with plaids linens or hunter green with purple or Irish green linens. The kids always love being up there amongst the clouds peering down at the tiny looking canyons and desert palms across the landscape. For added fun, see if you can tell which clouds are which. The real fluffy ones are cumulous clouds. As for the other ones - just take a wild guess!
SoCal Balloon Tours also offer flights from Del Mar which leave at sunset, and Temecula which leave at sunrise. Palm Springs is the only destination that offers both sunrise and sunset tours.
