The short ride to the base of Sandia Mtn. to the Sandia Peak Tram betrays the exciting ride and magnificent views from atop the mountain. A ride in the evening allows the viewing of one of the most spectacular sunsets and the City of Albuquerque...More

Enjoyed the ride and view during my birthday trip to Albuquerque. I Couldn’t believe the temperature difference at the top! Our ‘driver’ pointed out a few really cool rock formations and the views were amazing. A must-do if you visit the city.

Ride the tram, hiking, visit the Four Seasons Visitors at the top of the mountain, shop at the gift shop at the lower terminal and eat at Sandiago's Grill, also at the lower terminal!
