Best View of the City

Albuquerque is a beautiful city, and there’s no better way to appreciate it than from the basket of a hot air balloon! Fly low over the Rio Grande river and thousands of feet up to see the sun peaking over the Sandia Mountainsthere’s nothing quite like it. Our views are varied, unique, and stunning in every sense of the word!

A proposal is one of those precious moments in life that you will always remember—make it special by flying with us! We have dozens of proposals every year, and we treasure every opportunity to make hearts soar. There’s no better way to escape the ordinary than in a hot air balloon!
