For anyone seeking exhilarating experience, a ride in a hot air balloon is the perfect thing. Not are you floating thousands of feet above ground, but you also get to see some of the most beautiful sights in the U.S.

Speaking of hot air balloon rides in the States, some definitely rank above the others. Here are a couple of perfect destinations for all you thrill seekers out there.

A Tour Of The Valley

By having over 400 vine brands and being one of the regions with th6e most wineries, Napa Valley is certainly a sight to see. And what better way to see it than from a hot air balloon?

Thanks to Napa Valley Balloons, Inc. anyone can witness the birds-eye view of the famous vineyards and have breakfast and wine served to them upon landing.

And for those even more interested, there is also an offer that includes an extravagant wine tour right after the balloon ride.

As mentioned in one of our recent posts, the Grand Canyon is truly one of the most beautiful and majestic nature’s works.

Instead of hiking or “muling” your way through it, why not enjoy the magnificent view of the most distinguishable natural wonder in the U.S. from a balloon?

There are many air-tours Apex Balloons offer. Lasting anywhere from two to five hours, their tours give you a chance to get as high as 18,000 feet above sea level, and can travel from 20 to 100 miles, depending on the weather.

Soaring Above The Lake

Along the border of California and Nevada lies Lake Tahoe, the largest alpine lake in North America. Not only is it 22 miles long and 12 miles wide, but it’s also the second deepest lake in the States. That being said, isn’t it a sight worth seeing from an hot air balloon?

Lake Tahoe Balloons are here to answer this question – with their rides you can drift at 10,000 feet above sea level all along the lake, and if it’s a clear day, you can see a reflection of balloon in the calm waters below.
