Experience the Rio Grande Gorge Balloon RideOver the Rio Grande RiverHot Air Balloon PilotsPreparing for Flight with Rio Grande Gorge Balloon Ride

If you have ever wanted to ride in a hot air balloon, now is your chance. Celebrate life as you ride over the Rio Grande Gorge and River, Taos, and Sangre de Cristo; take in the beautiful views and capture the moment with amazing photos. This is an unforgettable experience that you'll be talking about for years to come. 

Not only will you see the amazing landscapes, but you'll see wildlife as well; bighorn sheep, falcons, and deer can be seen! Your experienced expert pilot will fly you through the gorge and take you down to the ground, skimming just six inches above the water! The crew is professional and will make you feel at ease if you are nervous about the flight. 
 
You will depart from the Taos Visitors Center back parking lot. You will be driven to the desert outside of Taos and will get to watch the inflation of the balloon. You'll get a balloon safety lesson and even get to lift the balloon off of the ground if you'd like!  Then, you'll board the basket and take off into the sky. You'll fly up, over, down, into the gorge. After landing, the crew will pack up the balloon and equipment and everyone will have a champagne toast and snack! The whole experience lasts approximately four hours and the flight itself is one hour. You must be twenty-one to drink and the maximum weight per passenger is 270 pounds. Add this adventure to your next vacation!
