Taos Ballooning: Hot Air Balloon Rides

Eske's Paradise Balloons is the only balloon ride company in Taos NM with a perfect safety record!

Balloon Ride Video from Alison Langley

Best known for her high-end, East Coast boat­ing pho­tog­ra­phy, Ali­son Lan­g­ley was a pas­sen­ger of Par­adise Bal­loons this sum­mer and cre­ated a won­der­ful video of her experience.

The video doc­u­ments  high­lights of a typ­i­cal Par­adise bal­loon­ing expe­ri­ence: infla­tion, lift-off over the Rio Grande Gorge, drop­ping 600′ down to the river for a “Splash and Dash,” and the happy land­ing.  Enjoy!

Music is by the local Taos trio, Moses’ Grandma.

Splash & Dash!

A spe­cial birth­day present for Dad, touch­ing down on the Rio Grande, just north of Taos, New Mex­ico.  When the con­di­tions are just right, this feat is part of bal­loon rides with Par­adise Balloons:
