- Chance to become a hands-on crew member
- Incredible desert sunrise or sunset views
- One of the top locations in America for a balloon ride
There’s only one word to describe this New Mexico gift experience and that is simply: epic. You’ll be carried aloft in a stylish and comfortable hot air balloon flown by an expert pilot, soaring high above the Rio Grande Valley, to enjoy absolutely stunning views of the desert and, depending on your chosen flight time, the sunrise or sunset. You might see a variety of desert wildlife scurrying around below, as well as local points of interest, but you can be certain that the scenery on all sides will be truly mindblowing.
Your Albuquerque gift experience begins with an opportunity to get involved inflating the balloon, or simply standing around and taking photos as the gentle giant comes to life. Climb into the spacious basket and hold your breath as it takes flight. A chase crew follows the balloon the whole way, and after coming in to land you’ll enjoy a celebratory toast with a couple of souvenirs to remember your flight. Cameras are not just recommended for this sightseeing tour - they are essential!
