DAY 1 : Hot Air Balloon Tour

Your hot air balloon tour experience begins as you are collected by a luxurious vehicle from your hotel. You are then transferred to one of the ten different launch sites that have been carefully selected for you in order to achieve the optimum flight path.

At the launch site you will have the opportunity to sit back and enjoy a delicious breakfast snack while you experience the inflation of the balloon. Once your pilot has completed the final checks and you have been given a general flight and safety briefing, it is time for the true magic to begin!

Once your expert pilot lifts you off into the air, allow the peace and tranquility to wash over you. As the gentle winds carry you away, be enchanted by an unforgettable journey over the extraordinary rock formations that were created by a volcanic eruption more than 3 million years ago.
During your balloon flight, you will have the opportunity to experience flying at varied heights from tree-top level – where you will enjoy contour flying at low levels amongst the infamous ‘Fairy Chimneys’, and through the canyons and ancient valleys (for which the weather in Cappadocia is uniquely suited), to an average altitude of up to 2000 feet (600 meters): the perfect vantage point to experience the majesty and timeless beauty that is Cappadocia.

Once you have landed, celebrate in style with a glass of Champagne – a hot air ballooning tradition! And before you are transferred back to your hotel, your pilot will present you with personalized flight certificate to commemorate your day

* Transport both to & from your hotel * Tea, coffee & snacks before the flight * Full insurance ( Cover over 8 million Euro ) * Champagne celebration at landing * Flight certificate
