Type: Balloon rides, Outdoor Activities, Sightseeing Tours
Owner description: 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!

This was one of the greatest things we've done! I'm afraid of heights & was relaxed the entire ride! Our pilot Kris is the best. He has many hours/years of piloting experience. He's made us feel so comfortable the entire time. Our chase car driver (also named Kris) was great too! I highly recommend Pueblo Balloon Company!! Even Leslie that... More

My wife and I hemmed and hawed a little about this venture, but eventually she persuaded me and I am so very glad she did. We were picked up at our Taos hotel before 7AM. We had a beautiful calm day and the views were spectacular. The balloon rose so slowly and gently that we hardly knew we were airborne.... More

We went for the morning flight in to the Royal Gorge. They picked us up at the hotel and took us to the take off spot. They were very thorough in reviewing the winds and flight conditions. We were able to fly into the gorge for quite a while. Because of conditions, we were not able to touch the basket... More

This was my second flight with Pueblo Balloon Company. I brought my husband this time. The staff was great and focused on Safety first and foremost. The pilot was very knowledgeable and experienced.

We were told by a fellow tourist at the Ghost Ranch that we MUST take a balloon ride once we arrived in Taos. She raved about Chris and crew and the excitment of dipping the basket in the river at the bottom of the gorge! Since the balloon fiesta had just wrapped up in ABQ balloons were on our minds....

Post Balloon Fiesta we went to Taos and had a balloon ride there. It was much saner and more scenic. The crew from making a reservation through the champagne post ride celebration were professional and very responsive. Chris the pilot was an expert and showed us sites we would never have imagined.

Bucket list experience of a lifetime! Our pilot Chris made us feel like family along with the rest of the crew. The opportunity to help with set up and take down made the experience even more memorable and the views were breathtaking! This was Lady Lucks final flight before retirement and our group felt extra special. Dave was so knowledgeable... More
