Adventures and Activities
ALBUQUERQUE BallooningIt’s common to see hot air balloons dotting the skies on any given day, which is why New Mexico is widely regarded as the “Ballooning Capital of the World.” Every October, thousands of visitors make their way to Balloon Fiesta Park to witness hundreds of balloons in all shapes and sizes ascending over Albuquerque.
ALBUQUERQUE HikingVery few destinations can rival the diversity of hiking options offered by a city that sits a mile high and is framed by a mountain range that reaches over 10,000 ft. From the cottonwood-lined banks of the Rio Grande to the alpine ridge of the Sandia Mountains, hiking in Albuquerque is a one-of-a-kind experience fit for any skill level.
From the network of single-track trails at the base of the Sandia Mountains to the 50-mile activity loop that surrounds the city, Albuquerque is a paradise to experience on two wheels. The diversity of terrain and moderate high-desert climate offer plenty of options for bikers of every skill level.
