Your Itinerary


We fly within a 30 mile radius of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We choose our launch sight to give you safest as well as the most scenic flight.

Rio Rancho

During days that will have a lot of balloons activity we plan our flights in the Rio Rancho area (north of Albuquerque) in order to show you all of the balloons flying for competitions.

Tome Hill Park

One of our favorite flights is slightly south of Albuquerque in a farming community called Los Lunas. There we fly over the mighty Rio Grande river and if you’re lucky we might even touch down in the river to do a “splash and dash.” Followed by a beautiful flight over historic Tome hill.

Incredible experience! Smaller company, with a more personalized experience than larger hot air balloon companies. My entire family had a wonderful time.


It was absolutely beautiful. Everyone was so nice. We had an amazing time The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable


Amazing flight, the attendants were equally friendly. First time on a hot air balloon wonderful........


Advise to book directly with local operator. Booking directly gives you comfort of knowing your expensive life time experience is well taken care. Had a terrible experience booking thru TripAdvisor. Tickets are expensive compared to booking directly thru local operators. Even though we received email confirmation that our booking was confirmed, before the event we got to know our booking was cancelled. Had to spend few hours with helpline on calls and emails to prove that we were not at fault to get our refund and all this was a traumatic experience where this shud have been a fun vacation.


It was so peaceful but such a great natural high. Brittany and her crew made it an experience we will never forget


Loved this experience! The crew was experienced, funny, knowledgeable, & made the entire trip wonderful. Absolutely would go again!


Had a blast! Very memorable moment! Couldn't have gone any better! Wishing it could've gone a little longer, but it was so much fun, didn't even realize how much time passed.


Yes, a bit of a drive but that’s what it takes to get these kind of views. The knowledgeable and fun crew made this experience the BEST for the time taken and price! Followed by a charcuterie board, local customized wine, mimosas, and a history of hot air ballooning…you just can’t beat that! 😍 Thank you Fly Albuquerque 🪂 —closest thing to hot air balloon emoji 🤷‍♀️😅


The entire family was there. Everyone loved the experience. The crew and pilot were wonderful. Extremely knowledgable and very courteous. My leg was giving me fits and they were very helpful getting me into and out of the basket. Truly enjoyed the ride. The eats and champagne at the end were just an added pleasure.


The staff and pilot were amazing. Everyone was friendly and sensitive to fear of heights and being first timers. Lots of patience and good humor. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day which made it even more worth it. I definitely feel we got our moneys worth, including the transportation to and from the site and champagne for after!
