Albuquerque Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride

by Rainbow Riders Duration 3h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $179

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 12 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.

It was an awesome experience. the staff and our pilot are very well prepared. You feel secure and have fun too! It feels so good to float. I am afraid of heights but for some reason I did not feel fear during the flight. Great job from rainbow ryders. Thanks a lot to our pilot Dean Doney

This was the highlight of our visit to Albuquerque! The flight was just awesome. We were all a little nervous but our pilot Alfred and his crew made us feel that we’re in good hands, This is an experience not to be missed and I highly recommend Rainbow Ryders.
