The climate in Cappadocia is exceptional for flying balloons, due to its extremely calm and predictable nature.
Cappadocia Balloon Tours 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.
