World Balloon is Albuquerque's original hot air balloon ride business that’s been taking to the skies for over forty years!

World Balloon is Albuquerque's original hot air balloon ride. In business for over forty years and counting, we fly each day just before sunrise. Our flights are typically over the Rio Grande valley and may include the river itself, El Bosque (the forest) on either side, the city of Albuquerque with view of the Sandia Mountains & the mountains surrounding high desert, and maybe even over the Petroglyph National Monument. Our rides typically last about an hour, although they do range in length from 45 minutes to an hour and a half. Duration will depend on weather, location, and available landing sites. Your safety and comfort is always at the top of our minds, and we take great strides to ensure that we only fly in the most ideal conditions. We can never get enough of the amazing views Albuquerque has to offer, and we look forward to sharing them with you soon.

[03/21/20]   Due to an abundance of precaution, all flights with World Balloon have been postponed until April 10, 2020. We look forward to filling the skies after April 10, 2020.
