3. RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED with all 4 Sedona Balloon Tours.

4. The minimum height requirement is 48 inches.

Northern Light Balloon Expeditions

Flying directly over Sedona AZ land, this company was the first to offer Sedona AZ tours ballooning the Red Rock area. It's also our Top Pick among all Sedona ballooning tours.

We're partial to these folks out of respect for their long-standing presence. We appreciate that they have "blazed-the-air-trail" for everyone else.

Red Rock Balloon Adventures

Also holding the required Coconino National Forest permit, this is the second, and only other company that actually floats directly above Sedona.

Red Rock Sedona Balloon Adventures has been around for quite a while too. And we think they're also a very good choice. Their equipment is a newer, and their pilots, from what I hear, fly in a way that seems a bit more daring… but rest assured, their safety record is excellent.

Sky High Balloon Adventures & Arizona Balloon Works

These two companies do not fly directly over Sedona, but you can still see the Red Rocks from the adjacent area above Prescott National Forest.

They're both a bit more budget-friendly, and I've heard they fly a lot higher.

The overall experience is very different, in ways that might surprise you. I think these two companies are worth considering.
