Our morning (or evening) hot air balloon rides begin at our meeting location off Coors Blvd. Once all guests have arrived, we’ll hop into the chase vans and head out to one of our balloon launch sites (a 10–15 minute drive).
While traveling to the launch site, your pilot will share some fascinating hot air balloon history and provide a safety orientation. Upon arrival, our crew will pull the hot air balloon equipment off the trailer, turn on the fans to inflate the balloon, and you’ll experience the balloon come to life!
Once all passengers climb into the balloon basket, the burner will surge, and you will slowly lift into the air. As you move effortlessly with the winds, you will enjoy the views of the beautiful Rio Grande Valley, Sandia Mountains, and spectacular views of Albuquerque from 2,000ft. Our typical hot air balloon rides travel 3-7 miles and last right around 45 minutes to an hour.
After your pilots safely lands the balloon, we’ll celebrate your hot air balloon ride with a 235+ year old tradition, a champagne toast!!! During your post flight celebration the crew will be packing up the balloon. Once everything is packed up we will drive you back to our meeting location leaving you with memories that will last a lifetime.
Enjoy your shared hot air balloon ride with stunning views of the Sandia Mountains and Rio Grande River, with an additional 3-4 other guests.
All the views of our shared hot air balloon ride, but with the intimacy of having your own balloon to yourselves. Great for anniversaries, birthdays, and engagements.
Reserve the entire balloon for your party. Experience all the beauty of the Rio Grande Valley and City of Albuquerque with just your family and friends.
