This was a first for both myself and my wife (who is scared of heights) but Dan put her at ease and after the ascent she was enjoying herself as much as I was. We both had a great time and would recommend this to anyone. From pick up to drop off it was an experience we will not forget.

What a beautiful way to watch the sunrise in Sedona! I was a tad nervous, but Blair was the coolest, warmest, and funniest pilot! His staff was fantastic too! The whole experience was soothing, stunning, and a blast. And Blair--don't forget about Silly Billy! :-D

Me and my wife had a fantastic time. Blair was a great pilot and we were totally at ease the whole time. Blair and his crew were great and the breakfast at the end was a nice touch. This will definitely be the highlight of our trip to Sedona.

What a fabulous experience.... We were picked up early for a sunrise accent ( sadly that did't work out perfectly but was the only glitch) Everything about this experience was a first for me and absolutely fascinating. The balloons and baskets were in the truck when we were picked up and brought to the launch site where they broke us... More

The balloon ride was augmented by a set of grandchildren who were so excited to be up in the basket that their enthusiasm was contagious. Dan, our pilot, had great information and patiently explained much of the process to the boys, who may return to Ohio and become balloon pilots some day. The advice to wear warm clothing was probably... More

What an experience for our family of six (ages 9 - 76)! We were picked up while it was still dark and driven to our launch site. The filling of the balloon was fascinating but could not compare with the early morning sights of the glorious rock formations of Sedona in the morning light. We felt totally safe and well... More

It was an incredible journey... A definite bucket list adventure. We had amazing views... Wonderful picture opportunities and a smooth adventure from take off to landing. Our pilot was fun, informative and responded to every question we asked. Plus he always made us feel safe. When we were done we had wonderful mimosas, strawberries with a yummy sugary dip and...

Our flight was good... the pilot Blair was informative. Our landing was bit running rough... as just when we were about to get down, a draft of air toppled our basket. Blair and the ground crew managed it the best they could and we got out safely. My only wish was that we should have flown near the Red rocks.... More

WE had adventure from soup to nuts back in April! Our pick up was on time, and the drive to the take off grounds was short. Winds almost knocked us out of the opportunity to fly, but the able crew put us on course. My twenty-seven year old autistic son was ecstatic for awhile, but as we rose higher, the... More

We tried booking with another company but they were booked solid. So we gave Northern Lights our business and boy, were we glad we did! Excellent service from start to finish. Over a 1 hour ride 1 mile up! And yes, THEY FLY BETWEEN, OVER AND AROUND THE RED ROCKS of Sedona. Our pilot, Dan was wonderful, very informative about... More
