Albuquerque Sunrise Balloon Ride
Fly and ride above the clouds on a Sunrise Balloon Ride in Albuquerque, New Mexico. You will begin at the launch site where you'll be checked in by the staff where you will then be introduced to the pilot and crew, then after a safety briefing and weather check they will prepare to inflate the balloon and you can even help the pilot for a more hands-on experience as well. The morning adventure takes approximately 3 1/2 hours and you will be up in the air for 1 hour.
After stepping into the hot air balloon's basket you will soar up to the skies high above the ground where you can enjoy 360-degree beautiful awe-inspiring views of the Rio Grande Valley and Albuquerque. Be sure to bring your camera to take tons of pictures of this unforgettable view! You will see views of the Sania Mountains, Petroglyph National Monument, and even volcanoes in the distance of the city's landscape.
Depending on the weather your route could be different during every flight, you may go right over the city of Albuquerque or head towards the beautiful waters of the Rio Grande River all while the pilot shares an informative commentary for you of the area. A chase crew will follow during the flight to make sure everything is safe and will meet us back at the ground shortly after landing. After an hour in the air, you will head back down to the ground safe and sound where you can then celebrate your flight through the sky with a free glass of champagne and a light breakfast. There is non-alcoholic beverages for participants who do not drink. You and any participant who participates in the hot air balloon ride will receive a commemorative certificate to celebrate the adventure.
