There is no better way to view the majesty of Lake Tahoe than from a hot air balloon basket a few hundred feet above the glassy surface. And only in Lake Tahoe will you get to launch and return from the world's only balloon aircraft recovery vessel on the deep blue water. Friendly staff will welcome you with breakfast treats and a post flight champagne toast. Rides take place just after sunrise, when the winds and waters are calm. Fit up to sixteen people in your hot air balloon and spend the morning taking in the natural scenery of a lake as beautiful as a bride on her wedding day. Be sure to bring along warm clothes, as Tahoe is known to be quite brisk in the mornings.
