Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

About Albuquerque

See the mass ascension of balloons and stand in awe during the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, the largest ballooning event in the world and one of New Mexico’s most dazzling spectacles. On this Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta tour, experience the pre-dawn opening ceremonies and the unforgettable Mass Ascension of hundreds of hot-air balloons, where the sky transforms into a rainbow of colors. In the evening, see the dramatic Balloon Glow, when all the balloons fire up their burners and light up at the same time, and After-Glow Fireworks Show. There’s also time for sightseeing with visits to the International Balloon Museum, dedicated to the art, culture, science, history, sport, and spectacle of ballooning. You’ll also visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, a fascinating museum and crafts market collectively run by the 19 New Mexico pueblos.

Enjoy a guided walking tour in Santa Fe, including the San Miguel Mission and Loretto Chapel’s “Miracle Stairway.” Globus has also included a drive along the Turquoise Trail, a scenic drive between Albuquerque and Santa Fe with breathtaking views of the Sandia Mountains as well as old mining towns. In Santa Fe, Globus has arranged a special dinner at La Casa Sena, one of the oldest-surviving houses in Santa Fe.
