GLOBUS 2021: Enchanted New Mexico with Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta & Santa Fe (AFE)
8 Day Tour from Albuquerque to Albuquerque
Whoever said 'Life isn't all sunshine and rainbows' never visited the enchanting state of New Mexico or attended the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Artists, writers, and poets have long been inspired by the hues of hot pinks, deep purples, and flaming oranges that dance daily across the mystical southwestern sky. But for one week in October, chasing rainbows becomes even easier as hundreds of hot air balloons take flight and turn the already stunning atmosphere into a kaleidoscope of dizzying color. The Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta may be the largest balloon event in the world, yet its Mass Ascension, fiery Balloon Glow, evening fireworks, and other beloved rituals aren't the only highlights on this vibrant New Mexico vacation. Visits to historic Route 66, artsy Santa Fe, and the pilgrimage site of Chimayo are equally uplifting. Want more tamales? More turquoise? More peppers? More pottery? Who doesn't?! Extend your New Mexico vacation with two extra days in sunbaked Santa Fe and linger a little longer in the cafes, galleries, missions, and museums this is adobe haven is known for.
