Experience the wonder of Cappadocia from the skies with our Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Tour, a must-do in your Travel in Turkey itinerary. This unforgettable adventure offers a panoramic view of Cappadocia's stunning landscapes at sunrise. We recommend arriving in Cappadocia the evening before, as the tour starts early in the morning before dawn to capture the best views.

After a breathtaking flight over the unique formations of Cappadocia, celebrate your experience with a traditional champagne toast. The rest of your day is free to explore more of Cappadocia's wonders through various available day tours. Note that balloon tours are weather dependent and typically operate from April to November.
If you're already in Cappadocia, booking your balloon tour early in the morning is advisable to account for possible weather changes. Rescheduling for the next day is an option if the weather is not favorable. Cappadocia is known for its high number of suitable ballooning days, approximately 300 days a year.
Choose from a range of experienced and professional balloon companies, all of which adhere to the highest safety standards, including pre and post-flight services. Rest assured, all operators we recommend comply with Turkish Civil Aviation regulations, ensuring a safe and memorable adventure in the skies of Cappadocia.

Tour Itinerary
Pre-dawn pick-up from your hotel or hostel in our minibus, which will take you directly to the launch site.
Free tea/coffee and snacks are provided while we prepare the balloons for launch.
(You can enjoy watching the balloons being filled with air and readied for take-off).
At sunrise we will begin take-off and ascend to an altitude of about 1000 feet to enjoy the early morning view over Cappadocia.
We will then drop to around 500 feet and float through the valleys enjoying the fairy chimneys and the magical landscape. There is plenty of time to take memorable photographs and soak in the beautiful scenery.
We will celebrate with a glass of champagne upon landing.
All passengers will receive a commemorative flight certificate.
Our minibus will then transfer you back to your hotel or hostel, the entire balloon adventure having lasted about 3 hours.
The deluxe tour uses smaller baskets designed for between 12-16 people which allows greater comfort and better viewing and photographic options. All passengers are insured

Why do we fly in the morning?
Wind and weather conditions are more stable during the morning, therefore guaranteeing a more pleasant and safe flight.
What to wear?
Please wear comfortable clothing. As we ascend the air will become colder, so we recommend you bring a light jacket or coat during the cooler months. We also recommend you wear flat shoes and pants or jeans.
What about my camera?
Your camera will be perfectly safe; however, we recommend you bring a soft case that you can use for the landing.
Can we bring children?
Children must be over 6 years to travel with us.
I get motion sickness - will this be a problem?
The balloon rides are very smooth and, due to the absence of turbulence, motion sickness is not an issue.
I am pregnant - is this a problem?
We advise pregnant women not to travel in case of a rough landing. Our insurance does not cover this type of medical situation.
Where will we land?
Good question! The simple answer is that nobody knows exactly where! The pilot will have done flight planning before the launch to ensure that the forecast wind direction does not take the balloon towards an unsuitable area. He will use the different air currents at different altitudes to steer the balloon toward a good landing place. The pilot also closely follows agreements with local landowners. This means that the balloon will not fly too close to livestock or land with areas planted with valuable crops.
What if I'm afraid of heights?
Flying in a high sided balloon basket is not like standing in a roof or a high ladder. You don't get that vertigo feeling. It is more like the ground is unfolding beneath you and because you are moving with the wind, there is no sensation of the wind blowing. The basket does not rock or sway, so you can't possibly fall out.
I sometimes get airsick when flying. Is a balloon the same?
No, it is not. The turbulence which usually causes motion sickness is completely absent in a balloon ride. The flight of a balloon is almost too smooth to describe.
