The lunar landscape of Cappadocia can only truly be appreciated from a high vantage point, and a balloon trip starting at dawn is a breathtaking experience not to be missed.
The balloon flight in Cappadocia is said to be the best in the world alongside the balloon flight in Kenya. It’s easy to fit in a balloon trip in with your other tours because they start very early in the morning – just don’t forget your camera!
Cappadocia balloon tour The company picks you up from your hotel and offers you a bite for breakfast before taking you to the launch site. It’s very exciting watching the balloon being inflated. There’s a brief lesson on how to take off and land safely … then you’re off!
Every flight is different because of the wind direction. The talented pilots go as high as 2 km for fantastic birds-eye views and so low that you can almost touch the huge rock formations and pick fruit from the trees. During sunrise the colors of the sun mix with the colors of the rocks making this an unforgettable moment.
On landing, there is the traditional celebration and cakes, and you can help the land crew pack up the balloon if you want. Everyone who completes the trip is awarded a flight certificate. Then you are taken back to your hotel in time for breakfast and any tour you have planned for the day.
There are two flights: a 60 minute flight (prices start from 160 Euros cash) and a 90 minute flight (prices start from 230 Euros cash). The price depends on the company you fly with and includes all-round-service, full passenger insurance and all taxes. With the long flight a small basket (roughly 12 passengers) can be guaranteed. With the short flight baskets may be bigger with more passengers. As balloon flights are very popular, advanced booking is advised. Should you not be able to fly, cancellation is free if notice is given in writing up to 24 hours before the flight.
