Know More about this tour

Begin your experience in the afternoon with check-in at the downtown headquarters (or choose optional pickup from your Albuquerque hotel). Afterward, hop in the van and head to the launch site.

When you arrive, watch your hot air balloon fill up with air. You even have the option to assist the crew as they fill up the giant balloon!

Once the balloon is ready, step into the sturdy basket and float up to the skies. Soak up bird's-eye views of the Rio Grande Valley and Albuquerque as you gently drift high above the ground. Snap photos of the sprawling mesa and the Sandia Mountains, a landmark mountain range to the east of Albuquerque.

Your pilot decides the route for the evening depending on the winds. You could glide over Albuquerque, hover low enough to wave at people in the city, or see the Rio Grande River up close. Expect stunning panoramic views of the desert landscape, any way the wind blows you. Your friendly and informative pilot shares commentary about New Mexico throughout your flight.

You can also learn about your pilots tales from the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta, the biggest hot air balloon festival in the world. During the annual fall event, some 750 balloons dot the desert sky.

After about one hour in the air, your pilot takes you back to solid ground, where a crew comes out to meet you. Toast to an incredible flight with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine accompanied by light refreshments.

Before you leave, receive a certificate that commemorates your hot air balloon flight. Then return by van to your original starting point (with optional hotel drop-off paid to the tour operator).
