Day 1 - Albuquerque, NM – We fly from Baton Rouge to beautiful Albuquerque, known as “the Land of Enchantment.” After we settle in at the hotel, we’ll enjoy a special welcome dinner.
Day 2 - Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Mass Ascension – Today we will learn why Albuquerque is called the Balloon Capital of the World. We depart for an early morning departure to Fiesta Field to witness the incredible Dawn Patrol, a tradition that began at Balloon Fiesta in 1978. Just at dawn when the winds are calmest, watch the mass ascension of hot-air balloons in a rainbow of colors and a variety of shapes. Enjoy breakfast afterwards and a mid-morning driving tour of Albuquerque, “The Jewel of the American Southwest.” Visit downtown area, University of New Mexico and Old Town. Free time this afternoon to rest. Next, we’ll enjoy a ride on the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway to the mountain’s 10,378-foot summit with its thrilling panoramic views of the city and the Rio Grande Valley. Tonight, enjoy the city at your leisure.
Day 3 - Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta – This morning we experience a fascinating introduction to the way of life enjoyed by America’s first “apartment dwellers,” the Pueblo tribes of the Southwest with stops at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, and the Turquoise Museum. After learning about turquoise and viewing the roman gothic decor, we are off to Albuquerque’s Old Town. After you enjoy some shopping and savor some lunch on your own we are headed back to the Balloon Fiesta and the Chaser’s Club. This evening, enjoy an included dinner before we head back for our evening feature, the Balloon Glow and After Glow Fireworks Show.
Day 4 - This morning we say goodbye to the Land of Enchantment and fly home after an amazing time at the Balloon Fiesta.
