Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta with Santa Fe

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, a local balloonist will educate you on ballooning, so you will be ready for the fiesta. Then, 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.

On this Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta tour, 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. During your 3-night stay in Santa Fe, enjoy a visit to the Georgia O’Keefe Museum and a guided trolley tour, including the Loretto Chapel’s “Miracle Stairway.” In Santa Fe, Globus has arranged a special farewell dinner featuring authentic southwestern cuisine. 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 and old mining towns.

If you want to see the spectacular Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta plus spend time in colorful Santa Fe, this tour is the vacation for you!
