After picking up your car rental in Phoenix, you're set to explore this desert side paradise. However, after a stop at the tourism office, you realize there's far too much to see by foot! Fortunately for you, the sky is truly the limit in this city.

Full of hot air

The Sonoran Desert is one of the most beloved areas in the country for hot air ballooning, so why not set aside some time to float among the clouds? With flights occurring year round, there's no excuse not to jump aboard this peaceful journey! While drifting through the sky you can ask the balloon operator questions about the landscape without being interrupted by loud propellers or engines. Why not experience a sunset or sunrise from the vista of a balloon?

'Copter of the canyons

If a balloon ride isn't exciting enough for you, why not try a helicopter journey? The intimate cockpit puts you right in the middle of the action, and offers a birds-eye view of the awe-inspiring rock formations. Being that helicopters are small, quick vehicles, you can expect to travel into even the most remote nooks and crannies during any helicopter ride in the area.

Seaplanes amid the rough

Think Phoenix is an arid landscape? One of the most overlooked aspects of the city is the number of seaplanes it has. You'll love the quick dips and tight turns of the small seaplanes as you cruise through the region's canyons and plateaus. At the end of your journey, there's no cooler way to land than an elegant skim across the water.
