the Largest Ballooning event…in the World!

See the world’s largest Hot Air Balloon Show where balloons from around the world come together to experience the best flying conditions on the planet.  Imagine being parked in your own reserved area where you can conveniently view the drama from your own RV or our hospitality tent as hundreds of multi-colored hot air balloons of varied shapes and sizes ascend together.  Nothing can match the spectacle of these brightly colored airships soaring skyward.  It’s an inspiring sight and a thrill of a lifetime!

Even before the sun crests the Sandia Mountains, hundreds of hot air balloonists are readying their balloons to fly the cerulean desert skies of New Mexico in early October. You are invited to become a part of history as the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta celebrates its annual festival. Observe the beauty of more than 800 graceful balloons in mass ascension, marvel at the skills of pilots in competitive events, watch the spectacular evening balloon glow ceremonies and the unbelievable special shapes ascension.  Experience the challenges of the chase crew or realize your secret dream of an optional ride into the crisp morning air in a giant rainbow-colored balloon.

The most photographed event in the world, Albuquerque is a mecca for pilots, photographers and observers alike. Join Adventure Caravans for this great Rally headed by our experienced staff that will ensure you have a memorable adventure.

In addition to fabulous Hot Air Balloon experiences, we take a tour of Old Town Albuquerque, visit the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, experience the thrill of the tram up Sandia Peak and have lunch at the top! We take the Acoma Pueblo Tour and journey up to Santa Fe for a day via the Turquoise Trail. Amazing we can fit it all in – 9 days of tours, balloon events and spectacular beauty. You can’t miss this rally!

RV CAMPING

We stay in the official ‘premium RV parking area’ which includes electric, water and mobile sewage service. The balloons ascend and when the wind is right, drift right over our rigs after take-off. The park is near the launch site and a free shuttle continually goes back and forth for those who want to talk to the pilots, walk amid the balloon gondolas, touch the balloons, help set them up, take them down or even volunteer to be part of a chase team.
