- Fly from ‘the Balloon Capital of the World’
- Enjoy one of the most memorable dawns of your life
This New Mexico gift experience sees you soar above the Rio Grande Valley in a hot air balloon, launching from Albuquerque, known as the ‘Ballooning Capital of the World’ for the superb flying conditions. You’ll take off before dawn, to witness a magnificent sunrise over the Sandia Mountains, crossing spectacular scenery that might include the Petroglyph National Monument, and the Rio Grande itself with the El Bosque forest on either side, depending on which way the winds are blowing.
With a professional pilot at the helm, you can relax and enjoy a scenic and stylish voyage through the skies. Chances are you’ll see at least a couple of other balloons up at the same time. After an hour of gentle cruising you’ll come in to land, where the crew will meet you with the traditional champagne toast, as well as a light continental breakfast. You’ll also receive a flight certificate to remind you of your experience. This part of New Mexico offers some of the most beguiling scenery in the southern USA - expect to be wowed.
