“‘You’ve never experienced true magic, until you’ve flown in a hot air balloon over Cappadocia’”
The climate in Cappadocia is exceptional for flying balloons, due to its extremely calm and predictable nature. Flights generally take place in the early morning (because the weather is more stable), and the average distance we cover, in accordance with the wind speed and direction, is anywhere from two to fifteen miles. The height at which we fly will vary from tree top level - where we enjoy contour flying at low level amongst the ‘Fairy Chimneys’ in the canyons and valleys (for which the weather in Cappadocia is uniquely suited), to several thousand feet up: the perfect vantage point to observe the majesty of Cappadocia.
What You Should KnowIn summer and spring, it is no colder in the balloon than it is on the ground, and generally, you should wear sensible shoes and dress comfortably, in the knowledge that it will get warmer as the morning progresses. We collect you from your hotel approximately one hour before sunrise. Transport to and from your hotel is provided in our luxury company vehicles. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided at the launch site before the flight. Your pilot will give you a safety briefing before take- off and tell you everything you need to know for a safe and enjoyable flight. After landing, we celebrate in style with a traditional glass of Champagne, and your pilot hands out your personalized flight certificate. You should allow 3 to 4 hours from start to finish. We aim to have you back at your hotel in time to join any morning sightseeing you may have arranged. Flights are dependent on good weather conditions.
