Best of the City

Rainbow Ryders is proud to announce that we were a 2017 Best of the City winner! We are very happy to have been able to receive this honor and love what we do in the gorgeous Land of Enchantment. The Rainbow Ryders team attended the 2017 Best of the City party, complete with a raffle game of guessing how many balloons were in our basket. We had a blast meeting and celebrating with the best of Albuquerque.

We would like to extend our sincerest thank you to all those who have supported us within the voting period, and our dear passengers that we have flown over the 35 years we have been in business. Thank you for the continued love and support and we look forward to another year of soaring among the clouds!

The Land of Enchantment

New Mexico is a unique state of culture, art, language, and adventure. It is rich in creativity and stunning natural wonders. Albuquerque is a popular city for tourists to explore; especially during the month of October because of the well-known Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. The Duke City is known for many things and hot air ballooning is at the top of the list. You can read about a visitors personal experience at the annual festival here.

Believe it or not, the vast desert terrain of New Mexico does contain a gorgeous southwestern style Resort and Spa, the Hyatt Tamaya. The Tamaya is a luxury resort that offers many activities to do when you’re not out exploring Albuquerque.

Albuquerque is home to volcanic landscapes, petroglyphs, and natural monuments. If you are looking for an trip full of adventure, unique experiences, and history; well look no more, Albuquerque is the place for you!
