Albuquerque Balloon Rides

Soar above the ordinary! Treat yourself to a once in a lifetime experience with an Albuquerque hot air balloon ride. Albuquerque, New Mexico is the hot air ballooning capital of the world. Imagine floating over the Rio Grande River valley with the majestic Sandia mountains towering nearby.

You can either become involved “hands-on” as a crew member and help with the balloon inflation, or you may sit back, observe and take pictures as the gentle giant comes alive. Remember to bring your camera! Afterward, celebrate your memorable adventure with a champagne toast. Complete your sky-high adventure with a trip on the Sandia Peak Tram to the top of the Sandia Mountains and enjoy a spectacular view of the Rio Grande Valley for miles around.
