Up, Up, and Away | Take in the views from a hot air balloon ride
The world is a beautiful place to see and explore. Unfortunately, most of the time we can only enjoy it from one vantage point, the ground level. But take a ride in one of these hot air balloons and you can experience the natural beauty that surrounds us from way up above.
Probably one of the most famous destinations for a hot air balloon ride, Cappadocia’s prehistoric landscape is thanks to volcanic eruptions that took place millions of years ago.
Best time to visit: In the springtime from April to June and the fall from September to October. But plan to stay a few days in the area as the weather can change quickly.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
Experience Africa’s Great Migration from above the plains of the Serengeti.
Best time to visit: Around June or July when the migration begins in Tanzania.
Loire Valley, France
It’s not every day your rendezvous is set near a château. Watch the sun rise over the vineyards in the region often referred to as the “Garden of France.”
Best time to visit: Starting in April all the way through October.
Lake Tahoe, California
Take in the surrounding views of the Sierra Nevada Mountains on a hot air balloon over Lake Tahoe. You can even make out the peaks of Yosemite National Park on a clear day.
Best time to visit: Lake Tahoe is known for its beaches … and its snow. So, plan your aerial adventure for the milder months from April to October.
