Information & Reservations
Over Lake Tahoe
In 1993 this company was the first to offer hot air balloon
flights over South Lake Tahoe. Their balloons are new state-of-the-art
equipment, certified and registered by the FAA. Their pilots
are commercial and instructor rated with over 21 years of ballooning
and aviation experience. Their vessel is U.S. Coast Guard certified
and operated by a licensed captain.
Your ballooning adventure will begin at sunrise and end approximately
three hours later. Flights take off from the South Lake Tahoe
Airport. After flying out over beautiful meadows, you'll soar
high above one of the world's most beautiful lakes where you
can view mountains beyond mountains in every direction. As the
flight descends down over the lake, you'll be floating peacefully
just above the water.
When your balloon flight is over, you'll land on the forty-foot
trimaran power boat, "Vivid Dreams." During the cruise
back to shore you'll be treated to a champagne and orange juice
toast, fruit, French pastries, cheese and crackers, beverages
and a number of other amenities.
All flights are by reservation and are scheduled weather permitting.
Next day reservations can usually be accommodated. Call for
details, rates and reservations.
