Discover Cappadocia in Turkey from the air on this early morning 1-hour or 1.5-hour hot air balloon ride. Travel to the launch site in an air-conditioned minivan, and climb aboard for your scenic flight. Then, it’s up, up and away over the lunar-like chimneys, spires, pinnacles and valleys, all made extra magical by the soft morning light. Ogle the views, spot cave houses and villages, and capture the panoramas on camera as your pilot points out places of interest. Finally, float gently back to earth and collect a special souvenir certificate of your flight.
Start your experience with an early morning pickup from your Cappadocia hotel. Board an air-conditioned minivan and head for the launch field.
When you arrive, meet your experienced pilot and receive a safety briefing as the crew prepares your brightly colored balloon. Each basket holds up to 12 – 18 people and there’s plenty of room to sightsee comfortably from inside. Climb aboard and feel the adrenalin rush as your balloon ascends into the sky for your safe, scenic flight.
As you glide, marvel at the stunning views over the lunar-like Cappadocia region. Gaze down at the fairy chimneys, volcanic spires, craggy cliffs and plateaus, and look for churches and houses carved into the rocks as you soar over the valleys. Sculpted by wind and floodwater over many millennia, the contoured rock formations create what is undoubtedly one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
Have your camera poised to record the scenery as you sail through the air. As you fly, listen to your pilot describe the sights and identify hidden gems and points of interest, all made extra magical by the soft dawn light.
After roughly one hour (1.5-hour if option selected), savor the last of your time in the air as your pilot gives you instructions on your smooth landing. Then, back on the ground, receive a special personal certificate to commemorate your flight.
Relish the memories of your trip on your return transfer. Your experience concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.
