  • Albuquerque: Sunrise Rio Grande Valley Hot Air Balloon Rides

    1. Albuquerque: Sunrise Rio Grande Valley Hot Air Balloon Rides

    Your adventure begins at the launch site. Become a hands-on crew member and help with the balloon inflation, or just sit back, observe, and take pictures as the gentle giant comes to life. Embark upon a unique journey at lift-off. Enjoy breathtaking views of the Rio Grande Valley while floating in the sky and sending greetings to earthbound folks below.

During your 1-hour ride, your pilot will answer any questions that you might have and identify local points of interest. The actual time in the air is approximately 60 minutes, but you should plan to spend up to 3.5 hours on your entire ballooning experience. The chase crew will follow the balloon while you’re flying and meet you at the landing site. You can then help pack up the balloon. After the balloon is loaded into the truck and trailer, you will bo...

    The van felt like a covid breeding ground, and being loaded in with strangers was really weird after being so cautious for the last year +. That being said, the balloon ride itself was spectacular, and Kris, our pilot, was a wonderful guide. I would highly recommend this experience, but would also recommend a double mask!!

What people are saying about New Mexico

Our pilot, Dean, was the BEST! So much experience and knowledge! If you want a safe, fun, and memorable flight go with Rainbow Ryders! I'm a bigger lady and we all know the basket must balance. Dean did this in a way to spare my humility! He made the group of 6 think it was their idea to all be on one side and the two smaller parties totaling 4 on one side (my side). You're probably asking, how did i get in and out of the basket. Tall step stool both ways! Offered to all not just the large older lady! Thanks for helping me make a check to my bucket list! High recommend!

The van felt like a covid breeding ground, and being loaded in with strangers was really weird after being so cautious for the last year +. That being said, the balloon ride itself was spectacular, and Kris, our pilot, was a wonderful guide. I would highly recommend this experience, but would also recommend a double mask!!

That was an AMAZING experience as was our Pilot... I HIGHLY recommend everyone give hot air ballooning a try... If it's on your bucket it DO IT!!!!!

We had the best pilot around, Dean. He made the trip enjoyable and exciting!

My son and I had a wonderful morning ride with our talented pilot Chris.
