The Largest Hot Air Balloon Festival in the World! Gather hundreds of giant, brightly colored hot air balloons in the same place on a perfect October morning, have them rise all at once into New Mexico's impossibly blue sky, and you have one of the man-made wonders of the world. Experience the beauty and charm of the “land of enchantment” from our Santa Fe accommodations. We'll enjoy an excursion to Taos Pueblo—a village inhabited by Native Americans for more than 800 years—and have time for lunch and to explore historic Taos Plaza. Witness the sunrise ascension of hundreds of balloons turning the sky into a postcard. Discover Albuquerque's famous Old Town and enjoy a guided tour (followed by free time) of Santa Fe. As the day winds down you'll head back to the Fiesta for the excitement of the Balloon Glow—just before dusk hundreds of balloons are illuminated turning the darkening sky into a dazzling array of color.
