Your Cappadocia tour begins with a front-door pickup at your hotel. Settle back for a scenic and comfortable ride through the Turkish countryside as you head to the hot-air balloon office, where you’ll enjoy a delicious breakfast spread.
From there, you’ll move to the nearby launch field to watch your 100-foot-tall balloon fill with air. Board the basket and feel the balloon lift as the distance between you and the Earth increases. Soon, you’ll have a bird’s-eye view of the incredible lunar landscapes, stone-cut churches, volcanic spires, and multicolored “fairy chimneys” that make up Cappadocia. As you reach the cruising level of 1,000 feet, your pilot will give you information on the unique geological history of the region, which has been inhabited since ancient times. You’ll even spot the old volcano that helped create this otherworldly scenery.
After your ride, you’ll refresh yourself with a celebratory Champagne toast and even receive a silver or gold medal as a souvenir of your flight. You can choose between a 20-person balloon ride, or upgrade to a longer flight with a maximum of 12 people to enjoy a more intimate experience.
