Of the many ways to appreciate Taos' spectacular beauty, none is more memorable than seeing it from the air.
Up in the Air
The sky is indeed big and blue in Northern New Mexico. It’s a adventure in itself up there, from Taos’ fast-changing changing weather and iconic Southwestern sunrises, sunsets, moonrises and moonsets to the never-ending panorama of stars seen against a black, black sky. There’s birdlife to spy as well. For the adventurous of spirit, try soaring 50-stories above the forest on Angel Fire's new zipline ride.
If you’re up for seeing the mesas and Taos’ wildly dynamic geography from above, a hot air balloon ride could be the new high for you. Take flight with expert pilots over strange and sensational terrain. Drift past ancient basalt formations or dip down into the Rio Grande Gorge. Taos and ballooning were made for each other. Welcome aboard!
