Description: Riding the soft desert winds is the perfect way to celebrate your special...
Riding the soft desert winds is the perfect way to celebrate your special occasions with friends, family or when there is romance in the air. And, there is no better place to enjoy it than around Taos. We fly the scenic Rio Grande Gorge as it cuts through the high desert mesa like a 650 ft. deep Grand Canyon. The famous Rio Grande River gently flows through it. As we're gently gliding and enjoying the beautiful panoramas we drop down into the Gorge and kiss the river for the most thrilling balloon ride anywhere. We see baby coyotes, deer, mountain goats and elk in the Spring, blossoming flowers, bushes and cacti in Summer, the colorful changing Fall foliage and the beautiful snow covered Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the Winter - there is always majestic beauty everywhere! Join us for your adventure of a lifetime today!

One of the most wonderful adventures of my life

If you get a chance TAKE A RIDE with this company. They are courteous professional and educational. I never once felt afraid. What a blessing Captain Chris and the crew are

My favorite part of our 10 day road trip. Wish I would've scheduled more time in Taos! Loved "touching" down on the Rio Grande!

My wife and I were travelling in New Mexico on vacation recently and on a whim decided to see if there were any spaces open for a balloon ride while we were in Taos. Lucky for us, we were able to get a reservation with Pueblo on our last day. We met the driver/balloonist bright and early, a very personable... More

The trip was Magical. Floating in the air was so peaceful, so quiet. Supposed to go to the Gorge, but the wind had other ideas for us that day. Saw a minor gorge instead. Great time of day during sunrise that captured the balloon's shadow on the ground. Worth every minute!!!

It was a pleasure to have such a professional crew to float around the beautiful Rio Grande Gorge with. The pilot and chase team really know what they are doing and put you at ease quickly and naturally. The chase team member that drove us out there even took the time to serve as our knowledgeable tour guide for NM.... More

Awesome adventure starts with an early rise and helping get balloon ready. Hardest part is climbing into the basket! You are gently lifted away by a skilled pilot and drift so peacefully along the Rio Grand Gorge's beauty. Simply wonderful trip, highly recommend this company! Great pilot and ground crew!

Bucket list, a little scared of heights, Taos Rio Grand river gorge. Priceless! Cool,crisp morning air, subtle breeze on the Mesa top overlooking the gorge. Floating away over the canyon edge, watching the river turn to rapids just after sunrise. Bliss. Pilot put everyone at ease. 5 stars!

My wife has always been fascinated with hot air balloons. As part of a week in the Taos area, she booked a balloon flight. I was not that thrilled, but 5:30 on a Saturday morning we met the crew and rode with them to the launch site. They drive you there for two reasons, you would probably never find it,... More

Chris, our pilot was just fantastic. He picked us up in Taos and took us to the launch site. He gave a great safety lesson, listened to the weather forecast, sent up a small balloon to check the wind and how to get into and out of the balloon safely. When we were in the air, he took us down... More
