You will be picked up at your hotel between 04:30 to 05 :00 a.m and transferred to the hot-air balloon departure point where you will enjoy a hot beverage and Turkish pastry as you watch the professional flight team prepare your balloon for flight. Balloons will begin flights just before and coinciding with sunrise when you will enjoy the spectacular view of Cappadocia for about one hour. After your Cappadocia Balloon Tours is completed you can enjoy a departing toast and a transfer will bring you back to your hotel about 08:00 a.m.
Cappadocia Balloon Tours is unique from any other flight experience as there is no sensation of motion. Travelling at heights of up to 1500 feet, the feeling is one of peace and tranquility. The earth slowly descends and rotates below you. Within moments of lift off you become at ease while you effortlessly drift over the treetops and the spectacular Cappadocia landscape. It is like a dream to gently float over the unique countryside in complete harmony with your surroundings.
The deep canyons and lush fertile valleys of Cappadocia provide hot-air balloons with an ideal playground to delight passengers with a unique and memorable flight. As gentle winds carry the balloon over places that accessible by foot you will gain an unequaled perspective of the ever changing Cappadocia landscape.
To fly in a balloon you must be at least 6 years of age, and we ask that our younger passengers (under 16 years of age) are accompanied by a responsible adult of 18 years or over. Passengers should be at least 4’6″ tall, so they can see over the edge of the basket and are able to adopt the landing position. There is no upper age limit with Cappadocia Balloon Tours.
