Rio Grande Balloons offers sunrise hot air balloon flights over the Rio Grande Gorge. We are locally owned and operated and are grateful to be able to share our love of flying over the unique and beautiful landscape of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.
The Sangre de Christo Mountains provide a backdrop to the dramatic landscapes of the Rio Grande Gorge cutting through the expansive sage-covered Taos Plateau, providing beautiful scenery for the dreamlike experience of flying in a hot air balloon. Depending on the time of year and weather conditions, we will often descend into the canyon to fly just above the Rio Grande, allowing an opportunity to see the local wildlife, including Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, in their canyon habitat. We believe that this is truly one of the most unique and beautiful flights in the country!
