The best experience of my life, worth every penny!! The departure is early in the morning so you’ll be able to catch the sunrise at its best, so do not forget to bring a jacket because it gets really cold! Once in the air, there are no words to describe the feeling.. It is like being in a live postal card!!

You can't not do this. What an experience. I would suggest doing a few tours first as you can then spot the places you've been. If you're pressed for time though you should definitely have this on your list. It's an early start but so very much worth it. The pictures don't do it justice.

Best experience ever! It was absolutely magical! I loved every minute! We went there as part of our honeymoon trip and been very lucky we had good weather the second try and were able to go on the balloon! Very well organised, they picked us up from our hotel 4 am and it was all very exciting! The “champagne” at the end could be better, didn’t really get much and was mixed with some kind of syrup. But everything else was great, highly recommended!

The team was very organized and made sure we were comfortable and safe throughout the entire ride. The views of Cappadocia from above were truly breathtaking and something I will never forget.

FAQ

Hot air balloons exist in a range of sizes, holding 8 to 24 passengers. Depending on the basket’s capacity, prices also change. Everyone in the basket may take in the breathtaking vistas as they stand in various compartments. The flight is influenced by several factors, including balloon volume, ambient air temperature, altitude above sea level, and others.

Only pilots with an FAA license and a clean flying check record are authorized to operate aircraft.

For an additional cost, pick-up from Gamirasu, Kayseri, and further locations can be arranged. Email info@cappadociaballoonsbooking.com for further details about pick-up locations.

The availability of balloon tours depends on the weather. If the weather is suitable, the Turkish Civil Aviation Authority’s Representation Office in Cappadocia will approve balloon flights. All Cappadocia hot air balloon companies must adhere to this.

Unfortunately, we do not accept kids younger than six. They won’t be able to see much or enjoy the hot air balloon tour due to the height of the basket. Children under the age of six may find it challenging to go into the landing position.

A gas burner in a hot air balloon raises the air’s temperature to roughly 100°C (212°F). The heated air causes the entire balloon to rise because it is lighter and less dense than the chilly air surrounding it. The balloon deflates as the hot air is released or when the air inside the balloon cools down.

In order for balloons to fly successfully, consistent winds are required, and the time right after sunrise is the optimum for locating these winds. Since balloons are airborne, the weather has a significant impact on whether or not they will fly. In order to fly toward a good landing spot using the wind currents, the pilot selects a launch point.

You should dress whatsoever makes you feel most at ease. Really, there is no reason to dress up. The day of the flight, you should dress in what you would normally wear if you were going for a walk. Occasionally, wearing a light jacket in the early spring or fall is comfortable. Women should wear shorts or pants, and layering your attire is preferable to wearing a bulky coat. The majority of top clothes should be made of cotton rather than synthetic fibers, and shoes should have flat soles. The radiating heat from the burners may make a cap handy for tall passengers.

Most balloonists love flying at low altitude. Anywhere from tree level to roughly 900 meters (3,000 feet) above the ground would be the normal balloon flight altitude. Climbing to such high altitudes is not actually necessary for Cappadocia Balloon flights. Having a panoramic view of Cappadocia is excellent for a short while before becoming monotonous. Additionally, strong air currents at higher altitudes frequently transport balloons away from the most important places.

The same stringent guidelines that govern airborne aircraft are used by Turkey’s Civil Aviation Authority to regulate ballooning.

When at a high altitude, it is typically 3.5°C cooler than at sea level for every 300 meters (1,000 feet) of altitude. However, the pilot continuously utilizes burners throughout the trip, which radiate heat outward and warm you up. We strongly advise bringing along two sets of socks and thermal underwear, especially for winter flights.

The balloon follows the wind wherever it goes. However, pilots can search for wind currents in various directions by flying at higher or lower altitudes. It is what we consider to be the purest form of sailing.

The team and a chasing vehicle follow the balloon. They ought to arrive at the landing place simultaneously with the balloon because they are in continual radio contact with the balloon’s pilot. The shuttle will transport you back to your hotel once the balloon has been dismantled (and the festivities have ended).

The distance that the balloon travels during the flight depends on the wind speed. On average, a hot air balloon can travel up to 5 km (or more or less) in one hour, but our pilots prefer not to travel too far as there may not be much interesting scenery beyond Cappadocia’s landscape. The balloon can also fly at different altitudes, and our pilots have precise control over the vertical movement of the balloon. It is not uncommon for the balloon to fly close to the ground or brush the tops of trees, making for a truly unique and memorable experience. A leaf or fruit picked from a treetop can serve as a keepsake of the flight.
