Cappadocia Deluxe Balloon Ride
We will pick you up from your hotel early in the morning for Cappadocia deluxe balloon tour. After we arrive there we have a light breakfast service while our balloon is inflated. Following a safety briefing from your pilot which explains the basic rules about balloon flights than getting on the Balloon and our tour starts officially.
Cappadocia Deluxe Balloon Flight
We pick up our passengers from their hotels roughly one hour before sunrise and we bring them to the take-off site. While you are having a light breakfast with tea, coffee, and cookies you will also see the inflation of the balloon. Following a safety briefing from your pilot which explains the basic rules about balloon flights, we climb into the baskets and the highlight of your Turkey holiday will start.
The main difference of this flight from our standard flight is that instead of a pre-designated take off area, we choose from among the 10 different fields we have all around the region, that will give us the best possible itinerary, depending on the wind conditions of that particular day. To do this, our pilots take a tour of the region way before sunrise time and check the winds. We collect our passengers from their hotels roughly one hour before sunrise and we bring them to our base, and serve tea, coffee, and cookies, as the passengers meet. In the meantime we let go several helium test balloons to check the last state of the wind, to make a final decision on the most suitable launching site. Then we climb aboard our vehicles and go to the take-off field. Then you will watch the balloon being inflated and heated up, which is quite a sight in itself. In the meantime, your pilot will give you a safety briefing. Once everything is ready, and your pilot tells you to do so, you can get into the basket for taking off.
During the flight, we rise to altitudes of several hundred meters to give you a good view of all that there is around, but what we do mostly is drift through the valleys and canyons and around the fairy chimneys, performing contour flying. This sort of balloon flight is possible only in Cappadocia in the whole world. The actual flight is between one and a half hours to two hours.
At the end of the flight, we land safely in an appropriate field. On landing, we have a traditional celebration party with a champagne cocktail and cakes, and we give every passenger a commemorative flight certificate written to their names. Then we bring our guests back to their hotels. The whole excursion takes about 3 to 4 hours from pick up to drop off. Therefore if the passengers wish to go on a sightseeing tour during the day, they are back in time to join the tour.
Minimum 1,5 hours flight on the air.
Transfer from hotel & back with high luxury vehicles.
Light Breakfast before balloon tour
