What you can expect
Experience the pristine tranquility of floating above the city of Albuquerque at daybreak aboard a hot air balloon. The Rio Grande, Sandia Mountains, and Albuquerque skyline are all visible as you soar above the spectacular natural and urban landscapes.
Your unforgettable hot air balloon experience begins at sunrise as you arrive at the launch site with an intimate group of up to 10 passengers just in time to watch the giant balloons inflate. Lift off is so gentle that you only notice you have taken flight when you see the ground gradually appearing more and more distant.
Take in the quiet as your balloon glides above the Rio Grande, with breathtaking views of the Sandia Mountains and the Albuquerque cityscape. The hour will literally fly by as you sightsee from new heights.
After you float back to earth, let the chase crew help you out of the basket and deflate the balloon. Enjoy a champagne toast to celebrate your safe flight before indulging in a continental breakfast of pastries and juices. Return to your hotel with your flight certificate to commemorate your aeronautical adventure.
