Balloon Flights

Hot Air Balloon Flight in Cappadocia Region

Cappadocia is known around the world as one of the best places to fly with hot air balloons. As you take off for sunrise you will start to be hypnotised by the spectacular and surreal landscape that lies below you. You will gently drift over the fairy chimneys, through valleys scattered with pigeon houses, over orchards and vineyards. The different colours of the diversified landscape will leave you breathless. An activity not to be missed. As long as the weather allows, hot air balloon flights can be made during all year.

We meet our guests one hour before the sunrise in order to drive them to have open buffet breakfast in our authentic restaurant. (in Goreme, Cappadocia). Afterwards, we transfer you to the take off area. While the crew prepares the balloon for take off, you will have the chance to witness how a hot air balloon inflates.
Once we take off, this thrilling experience lasts approximately one hour. As the wind gives the direction to the balloon, you will travel through the spectacular valleys of Cappadocia and even get so near to volcanic formations.

Standard Balloon Flight

Comfort Balloon Flight

Deluxe Balloon Flight

Private Balloon Flight

1-hour Standard Flight is the most popular balloon flight option as it’s available daily throughout the year (as long as the weather permits). This flight begins with a pick-up from your hotel about one hour before sunrise. We will travel to one of our take-off sites, depending on the wind direction and prepare the balloon for flight. The inflation takes about 20 minutes and is the perfect time to get some impressive photos of the inflation process in the early morning light.

Before taking off your professional, fully licensed balloon pilot will go over the flight information, safety briefing and landing instructions…  Then we’re off! The gentle gliding motion of the hot air balloon through the rock formations and up to the low clouds is a comforting sensation. With vineyards, orchards, unique architecture of ancient villages, many diverse rock formations and mountain ranges to see, this one hour flight option is perfect to see the whole area from a bird’s eye view!

Each flight is completely different as the wind determines the general direction.

 After landing we’ll celebrate our return to the ground with a glass of local champagne. The champagne toast has been the traditional way of finishing the hot air balloon flight since the Montgolfier Brothers first flight in France in 1873. Fruit juice is also available for those who do not drink alcohol.

Standard balloon flight is operated with 20-28 passenger basket balloons.

General Guideline

Do we have to fly so early?
The best weather conditions are usually at this time. Usually the wind is not very strong at early mornings and there are no thermals. Plus it’s a wonderful view to watch the sunrise from a hot air balloon!

What do you have to wear?
The weather can be a little chilly at early morning and quite cold in winter time. But as the sun goes up it will get warmer. So it’s best to wear in layers. Warm and long trousers, t-shirt and long sleeve pullover or sweatshirts, and suitable footwear for an outdoor will be best options to wear. In winter or early spring times it’s best to bring a coat with you.

Where the balloons take off from?
The take-off site can change according to the direction and the speed of the wind. But you can be sure that whereever the balloons may take-off from you will still be able to see the the most charming valleys and most beautiful views of Cappadocia.

How High the balloons go?
Again this depends on the wind. If the weather is calm the balloons can go up to 1000 feet. And sometimes can go as low as you can pick fruits from the trees.

Can you bring your children?
The hot air balloons can accept children over 7 years old children but unfortunately not younger than that. And please note that pregnant women also not allowed at the balloon.

Can you fly with Hot Air Balloon in winter time?
Yes, hot air balloons are operating all year long but from October to March, there may be more cancellations due to weather conditions.

When does a flight will be cancelled?
Basically the important point here is the velocity of the wind. Again if the rain is very heavy or there is fog the flight may be cancelled.  To be able to take off safely the wind has to be less than 10 knots. If you have couple of days in the region you can try to fly the next mornings. But if you don’t have time or don’t want to try again, you will receive a full refund if we have to cancel your flight.
