Your Itinerary

Rainbow Ryders Hot Air Balloon

Rise early to begin your hot-air balloon experience. Stop into the office for check-in, then ride to the balloon launch site (which varies day-to-day depending on weather). Your pilot begins the process of inflating the balloon when you arrive. You can even help out the crew during the inflation process for a more hands-on experience. As you float high above the ground, enjoy incredible birds-eye views of the Rio Grande Valley. Your pilot determines the route for the day depending on the wind’s direction. You may fly over the city of Albuquerque and even dip low enough to wave at people or skim the Rio Grande River. Throughout your flight, your pilot shares informative commentary about the landscape beneath you. After approximately one hour in the air, your pilot lands the balloon and the ground crew comes to meet you. Celebrate your flight with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine and a commemorative flight certificate before returning to the original starting point.

The staff at Rainbow Ryders were very knowledgeable and professional. They were ready and accommodating so that everyone had a wonderful experience. The ride was so peaceful and quiet while gently moving along with the breeze above Albuquerque. Would definitely recommend them to others.


This is an amazing experience. Alfred piloted the balloon impeccably. Beautiful views and a fantastic landing on a street in a residential area. Would book again and fly with Alfred


We wanted to check off the balloon ride from our bucket list, and decided that Albuquerque would be the best place to do it. Rainbow Riders was excellent from preparing us before the ride, providing outstanding pilots, and giving us an unforgettable ride. We would do it again with Rainbow Riders and highly recommend them!


Riding in a hot air balloon is a bucket list dream come true! This is the #1 company for this experience. With 38 balloons, there are plenty of opportunities for you to ride. I did a sunrise tour and was not disappointed! ALFRED was our pilot, and he did an exceptional job. He was incredibly knowledgeable and experienced. By far one of the most fantastic experiences of my life.


Our pilot Brad was excellent. From the beginning to the end we felt that we were in good hands.Highly recommend.


What a wonderful experience! Everything was as advertised and exceeded our expectations! Our captain, Gregg, was fantastic. He engaged us from the moment we met. Actually, the first day we got to the drop site and could not fly that day due to high winds. They went out of their way to get us up (we had a two person private flight) and contacted Gregg and he took us up the next day. Gregg was awesome during the over one hour flight explaining everything to us regarding the ballon as well as pointing our the sights. We touched down in the Rio Grande briefly which was really cool. I highly recommend these guys, they are first class and as I mentioned, the experience exceeded our expectations!


Breathtaking views. Alfred was an excellent guide and pilot making the entire experience fun and educational.


I was delighted with the gentle lift and smoothness of the ride. The pilot was humorous and informative, pointing out landscape features and other interesting details.


The entire experience was amazing and the pilot did a great job reassuring us that they know how to fly safely and are very experienced. The best part is the moment of take off.


Fabulous our guide Alfred was fantastic. I was very apprehensive about doing this, but I’m so glad I did. I loved every minute of it. I would recommend it highly. They are professional and will make you Feel at ease, it was once in a lifetime opportunity.
