Wherever you live, spring is by definition an uplifting time. In California, balloon rides literally take that uplifting feeling to new heights! A combination of perfect temperatures, longer days, and blooming flowers make our most colorful landscapes a wonder to behold, and there's no better vantage point from which to enjoy them, than from up above.

Hot Air Balloon in San Diego

Compass Balloons specializes in hot air balloon tours that float above the mesas, canyons, and beaches of America's Finest City. An array of breathtaking vistas, from downtown to north county, include the range of mountains rising to the east, and of course the endless expanse of deep blue Pacific, stretching onward to the horizon. It's a sight worthy of a champagne toast — and wouldn't you know it? A Compass Balloons hot air balloon ride in San Diego includes complimentary champagne, along with a cheese and fruit plate. It's tough to think of a better springtime adventure! 

Sunset Hot Air Balloon Rides

The timing of our San Diego hot air balloon tours only adds to the scenic beauty you'll experience along the ride. Whatever time of year, tours lift off near the end of daylight hours. But particularly in the spring, when the sun starts dropping over the western horizon, and those famous San Diego sunsets begin to light up the sky with electric pinks and purples, oranges, reds, and yellows, you'll be there to witness it, unobstructed, with a panoramic display throwing a kaleidoscope of colors in every direction. It's a miraculous sight that can't be reproduced any other way. And it can't be beaten when it comes to romance — one reason why, year after year, our sunset hot air balloon rides provide the perfect venue for marriage proposals that will be recounted fondly for a lifetime.

Balloon Rides Temecula

Of course, California balloon rides aren't exclusive to San Diego. Compass Balloons also offers fantastic hot air balloon rides in Temecula. These sunrise tours take flight over the Temecula Valley, where the region's famous vineyards are slowly revealed as the shadows retreat beneath the sun's slow rise over Palomar Mountain, and Mt. San Jacinto. There's no better way to start your day than with a balloon ride over Temecula, sipping champagne while the hillsides come alive with light, and the valley floor becomes a patchwork of blooming spring colors. These tours provide truly inspiring views, exclusive to your serene perch overhead.
