Cappadocia Hot Air Ballooning

IT MAY BE THE SAFEST MEANS OF FLYING – IT IS CERTAINLY ONE OF THE MOST THRILLING…The skippers of our hot air balloons glide you through the amazing landscapes of Cappadocia and then descend to the valley below. While skimming tree tops, they may even pause over an apple orchard and let you pick apples from a tree.

Includes: Cappadocia area hotel pick up and drop off, pre-flight tea/coffee, approximately an hour and a half flying with full passenger insurance, cocktail ceremony and flight certificate.
Departure: Sunrise daily, weather permitting, as determined by the Turkish Civil Aviation Authority. Previous years have shown a 95% flyability record. Drop offs usually around 9am to 10am.
Program: We choose the take off point en route each day depending on the wind direction. We use over 30 different sites in the area in order to fly over the most interesting landscape as, once airborne, the balloon will travel free as the wind. Preparation of equipment takes about 30 minutes and the passengers are welcome to help or take photographs. The flight includes both low contour flying sometimes disappearing deep into the canyons and also going high enough to see the whole landscape from above. Because the balloon is separated from the earth no sensation of fear or vertigo is experienced. It is not colder in the air than it is on the ground. After the landing and packing of equipment we offer a celebration with our special cocktail and present flight certificates to participants before returning them to their hotels for a late breakfast or to start their day tours.
Conditions: Bring appropriate clothing for the time of year and sensible walking shoes.
