Cappadocia is known around the world as one of the best places to fly in hot air balloons. The spectacular, surreal landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses built into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards – through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features – and then float up over rippled ravines for truly breathtaking views over the region.
We offer 3 different types of balloon flights in Cappadocia – according to flight duration and services.
SHORT HOT AIR BALLOONING TOURS (45 – 50 minutes)
The Short Balloon Tour offers a minimum 45 minutes flight time in the air. You will be collected from your hotel early in the morning, usually before sunrise and driven to the take-off site. While you are having a light breakfast, you will watch the inflation of the balloon then get a passenger briefing which explains basic rules & safety measures for the balloon flight. Then it’s time to climb into the basket and highlight of your Turkey trip begins! The take off is gentle – soon you’ll be taking hundreds of pictures over the valleys of Cappadocia. After the flight lands, there is a small celebration with champagne and you will receive your flight certificate. You will be driven back to your hotel around 08:30am just in time for breakfast, going on a daily tour or a nap.
The short balloon flight is 149 Euro per person including transfers from/to hotel, a light breakfast, champagne celebration, insurance and flight certificates.
LONG HOT AIR BALLOONING TOURS (1 hour 45 minutes)
By joining the Deluxe Balloon Tours you will have a minimum 1.5 hour flight. For people who are interested in photography and aviation, the deluxe tour is the perfect choice. The main difference between the deluxe flights, is the longer flight time but you will also fly in smaller baskets, usually between 6 and 10 people.
The Deluxe balloon flight is 249 Euro per person including transfers from/to hotel, a light breakfast, champagne celebration and flight certificates.
VIP HOT AIR BALLOONING TOURS (2 1/2 – 3 hours)
What better way to celebrate that special occasion, be it an anniversary, birthday, wedding any other important event, than by taking a balloon flight just for two in a small balloon. Our VIP balloons are different from the other passenger balloons flying in Cappadocia. It only has room for the pilot and two passengers in the basket, so your flight is a very personal experience which can be tailored for you and your partner.
The VIP flight offers private transfer from your hotel to the launch site, special drinks and refreshments on the launch site whilst the balloon is being inflated, a gentle balloon flight for two people lasting around 3 hours, champagne and refreshments after landing, then transfer from the landing site back to your hotel in your personal transport.
