Best Way to See Tahoe

Simply put, there is no better way to experience Lake Tahoe than with a balloon ride from Lake Tahoe Hot Air Balloons. There is literally nothing like it in the world.

Your balloon ride starts off in a large launch boat. Your group is motored out into the lake so you get to see the beauty of Lake Tahoe up close and personal. Once out in the water, the balloon takes off for amazing views. On good weather days, you might go as high as 1,600 feet above the lake (that's 7,800 feet elevation total).

When the ride is over, the balloon actually lands back on the boat. It's the only hot air balloon in the world that both launches from and lands on a boat.
