About Pueblo Balloon
Pueblo Balloon's skilled pilots have been cruising gentle air currents in their colorful balloons for over 30 years. From the safety of a basket, they unveil panoramic views of the arcing earth, the sun above mountains, exposing the desert valley below in the Taos Valley. After the balloon alights upon the ground, the staffers keep the experience going. They treat guests to a champagne toast and a light snack, and give them a commemorative certificate. The crew also sets the tone for each celebration with a short lesson on the origins of hot-air ballooning and how to identify which clouds would yield the fluffiest pillow stuffing.
