Soar over Bryce Canyon in a hot air balloon and get a unique bird’s eye view of the park. Bryce Canyon is an ideal place to try a hot air balloon ride. Because the mountain air is so clear, it’s possible to see for hundreds of miles in every direction. One-hour flights depart during sunrise throughout the year from Cannonville, which is about a 15-minute drive from the park. Afraid of heights? The experience isn’t as scary as you might think. Balloon rides are smooth and stable during flights, which makes ballooning feel more like standing on top of a mountain than flying through the air. Kids ages 4 and older can ride in the balloons. Rates start at $299 per person.
