Hot Air Ballooning at its Best

Whether you’re new to the wonderful world of ballooning, or have soared through the skies many times before, Albuquerque, the hot air ballooning capital of the world, is the perfect place to be. Ballooning began over a century ago in Albuquerque, but didn’t truly become popular until 1972, when the Albuquerque International Balloon Festival was born.  Albuquerque has become such a popular ballooning destination, thanks of course to the spectacular weather, but also due to the unique box wind pattern, which features distinct directional winds that allow the pilots to launch, fly for longer distances, and then land at their original location.  This wind pattern is particularly favorable on October mornings, which is why the International Balloon Festival takes place then. No matter what time of year you visit us, you’re bound to see these majestic balloons soaring through the air during your visit.  If you’d like to feel the wind in your face and soar high above the skies of Albuquerque, there are plenty of Hot Air Ballooning companies in Albuquerque waiting to take you on your next adventure.

Hot Air Ballooning AlbuquerqueThere are over 300 balloonists that live in the area year round, which is more than in any other state, and ballooning has become a deeply rooted part of the culture in Albuquerque.  If you’re as fascinated by this majestic sport as we are, then you’ll enjoy a visit to the popular Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum in downtown Albuquerque. Here, you’ll find the world’s finest collections of ballooning equipment and memorabilia and innovative exhibits that highlight the adventurous spirit of modern-day ballooning.  It’s not too late to plan your summer getaway to Albuquerque, and it’s never too early to start planning for Albuquerque’s most photographed event, the International Balloon Fiesta.
