Balloon America

Take a Once In a Lifetime Hot Air Balloon Tour along the Santa Catalina mountains, Southern Arizona's magnificent sky islands


Balloon America flies one half of a mile from and frequently closer to the Santa Catalina and Rincon Mountain Ranges. Flight conditions permitting you'll fly up to ten miles along these majestic Sky Islands that soar 9100 feet above sea level. Our exclusive flight path departing from La Mariposa Resort provides passengers with superior scenic views compared to others and stable flight conditions.

Catalina Mountain Tour

This hot air balloon adventure lasts up to three hours total from start to finish, where you'll be traveling 5 to 10 miles at altitudes from tree top level to 3,000 feet above ground. Our typical flight path takes us toward Sabino Canyon and over the foothills of the 9,100 foot tall Santa Catalina Mountains.

Inflated with Perks

With this package, you'll receive:

* An exclusive multiple picture photo album taken in flight. (not from the ground like our competitors.)  Our remotely mounted professional Nikon digital camera is mounted on the basket frame with an articulating arm - and has a wide angle lens - to capture you with panoramic background scenery. This high definition album is uploaded to Google photos the same day for you to share with friends and family. SO much better than any selfie you can take! 

* In addition, we serve French Taittinger Brut Champagne. Showing class and style, Brut La Francaise Champagne offers stunning richness while exhibiting excellent overall balance. Our post flight toast to the inventors of hot air ballooning takes place at our private and serene duck pond at Club LaMariposa in chilled crystal flutes. A choice of juices is also available.

* Exclusive airborne video footage of you taken by our drone which shows you entering the basket and lifting off! Our drone will circle us for the first few minutes of flight providing closeups of you in the basket along with magnificent mountain scenery. This video is available on You Tube with added titles and music for you to share. This is an innovative extra you'll find only with Balloon America!
