Hot Air Ballooning Albuquerque

by – Ellen Nowakowski, Tour Manager, USA

Albuquerque, New Mexico is widely regarded as the hot air ballooning capital of the entire world and every year thousands of people flock to the town just to go hot air ballooning.

I always say that the hot air balloons are an experience that you can’t define. Any fears or reservations you may have are checked at the door as soon as you exit the van and witness the balloon being blown up and prepped for take off. Once in the balloon, you soar above the desert to get beautiful shots of the valley of the sun from a peaceful perspective that is both relaxing and exciting all at once!

Hot Air Ballooning is offered as an optional excursion on Contiki USA Tours visiting Albuquerque, while you can also go Hot Air Ballooning in Phoenix.
