Hot Air Balloon Rides

Whether you’re looking for a fun and exciting experience to celebrate a special event or want to experience Southern California from a unique tourism vantage point, there’s nothing quite like hot air balloons! For more than 20 years, Balloons Above has been giving people hot air balloon rides throughout SoCal, including in Palm Springs, San Diego and Los Angeles. We never get tired of seeing the awed looks and excitement of people once we fire up the burners and take them a thousand feet up!

We offer hot air balloon rides for individuals and small groups, for people of all ages. Join us for a morning or early afternoon tour, or book one of our seasonal evening tours to experience sunset like never before. We’ve made our hot air balloons as accessible as possible, to accommodate everyone—no matter your mobility needs. Our baskets are more accessible than traditional balloon baskets, as we have walk-through doors that lock in place once you are inside. No climbing over the basket necessary! Once you’re in, we’ll show you a side of Coachella Valley you’ve never seen before—scenic vistas, stunning landscapes, beautiful horizons and more!

We also offer hot air balloon advertising opportunities for those who want to get their message out in a fun and unique way. We’ve partnered with everyone from private clients announcing their wedding to local businesses looking for great ROI on their advertising budget. Contact us today to learn more!
