Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Flights

Breath-taking views, dizzying heights, limitless exhilaration – the things you’ll experience when you embark on a hot air balloon from Cappadocia. Located in central Turkey, Cappadocia’s stunning scenery is dotted with ‘fairy chimneys’, sets of dramatic stone hills that jut into the sky. Photographers and nature lovers will adore the magical scene, the vivid colours and the atmosphere of the haunting landscape. The best part is, you can see it all from the comfort of a hot air balloon, looking down on a view most only dream of.

Cappadocia’s hot air balloon rides are among the best in the world due to the fantastic views, but also due to the flying conditions. The gentle wind will send you drifting silently over the hills, vineyards, villages and chimneys with grace, giving you plenty of time to snap some pictures. If you love flying, it’s a dream come true, but even those who are wary of heights will feel safe on this smooth and relaxing trip.

There are plenty of tours to choose from – you can take a tour at daybreak and watch the light come up on the mysterious and strange beauty of Cappadocia, a perfect trip for early-birds and romantics who like to watch the sunrise. You can take a full day trip to make the most of the unique experience, or take a special flight just for two, a perfect, intimate gift to the one you love. Before or after your flight, you will often be given a champagne breakfast to start the day off in style, but it doesn’t get much better than the flight itself.

Cappadocia’s hot air balloon tours run year-round, but the summer season is the busiest and best time to fly, with less likelihood of weather related cancellations. Passengers should be prepared for cold mornings, but the weather often gets warmer during the day, so it’s best to wear layers.

If you’re staying near Cappadocia, there are plenty of other sights to see after your balloon ride. Among the fairy chimneys, there are plenty of villages with both aesthetic and historical qualities. There are homes dating back to the Bronze Age cave dwellers, and beautiful churches built into the fairy chimneys. Ihlara Valley is a beautiful spot for hikers to explore, and many tours will take you to the Kaymakli underground city.
