About Pueblo Balloons
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 an interactive activity worth every penny. This outfit offers more than expected with a surprise twist at the end..not referring to the landing :)

We had a wonderful time with our pilot Sol and ground crew Alex. They were kind, knowledgeable and professional. The peacefulness and beauty of flying over The Gorge was awe-inspiring. Highly recommend this company and the experience.
