Hot Air Ballooning

Balloon over Lake Tahoe

See Lake Tahoe from above!  Between May and October, take a hot air balloon adventure that will create some amazing memories.  Cruise out to the designated launching site on the Tahoe Flyer, the world's only USCG certified balloon launch vessel. Enjoy a deluxe continental breakfast will be served on the boat. Upon reaching the designated launching site, the process of the balloon inflation starts on the upper deck of the Tahoe Flyer. Guests will have the opportunity to observe our experienced crew as they prepare the hot air balloon for flight. Once inflated, guests move to the upper deck and begin boarding. The flight takses guests high above Lake Tahoe for an approximateone hour flight.   Flying from lake level to approximately 8,000 - 10,000 feet above sea level provides views of all of Tahoe including Emerald Bay, the second most photographed spot in the U.S., and other vistas. At the end of the flight, the pilot will remarkably land back on the upper deck of the Tahoe Flyer and our crew will begin the deflation process of the balloon. To celebrate this once in a lifetime experience the pilot, crew and our guests will all enjoy a traditional champagne toast with plenty of champagne, mimosas and snacks while cruising back to Tahoe Keys Marina. Please allow approximately 4 hours for this experience.

Guest Reviews

"Super convenient to the hill!
The condo was very nice. Service was great. Ski locker was a bonus. We loved being able to cook meals, and have skiers return home on their own schedule."

"Some of the best lodging I’ve stayed in - ever!
All I can say is "Swanky!" We had an enormous living room, kitchen and balcony area. I loved the fireplace. Staff was cheery, helpful."
