Hot Air Ballooning over Cappadocia, Turkey

If you have a passion about hot air ballooning then you really need to try this out, but even if you don’t we still highly recommend you experience this. The superb landscape of Cappadocia makes this experience unforgettable. If you choose to book this then the crew will pick you up at your hotel before dawn and will drive you to the takeoff site. After a chilly dawn launch you float silently above the Cappadocian moonscape dotted with villages, vineyards and fruit orchards for about an hour, coming down in a farmer’s field. The crew retrieves you and the aircraft, then breaks out the bubbly for a traditional champagne toast to a successful aeronautical adventure.

You can choose between 3 types of flights:
Regular Flight - Regular 1 hour flight, operated with 14, 16 or 20 people capacity balloons.
Deluxe Flight - Longer 1.5 hour flight, operated with smaller capacity balloons.
Private Flight - Perfect for special anniversaries, honeymoons, weddings, birthdays, the duration is optional, and it can be anywhere from half an hour to two hours.

The best flying weather is from April through October when the skies are clear and the winds light at dawn, but some companies fly in winter as well on days with favorable weather for flying.
