A balloon flight is one of the world’s most beautiful experiences, and Cappadocia is one of the best places to fly.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Your flight experience begins before dawn with pickup from your Cappadocia hotel and transfer to the balloon company office for registration and final weather checks.
Drive to the the takeoff point to watch the final stages of the balloon inflation. The ground crew will direct you when it’s time to enter the basket and meet your pilot. Listen carefully to the safety briefing before takeoff.
As the gas jet flares your balloon will gently lift into the air and your romantic adventure begins – some of the best photographs of your life!
Every flight is different, depending on the weather conditions and wind direction you will gently float over different locations- possibly the towns of Göreme or Uçhisar, Red Valley (Kızılçükür Vadisi) Rose Valley Güllüdere, Love valley Aşk Vadisi Bağlıdere. Watch the dawn light sweep across the landscape – look out for fairy chimneys, water canyons, gardens, orchards, wild flowers, maybe you will see wild rabbits, pheasants or partridges and maybe even a fox out hunting.
After approximately an hour’s flight your pilot will choose a safe place to land, and radio the following ground crew.
pickup & drop-off at your hotel, Civil Aviation inspected balloon and equipment, licensed English-speaking pilot, comfortable air-conditioned vehicle and professional driver, flight certificate, post-flight celebration
