When you think of Cappadocia, the image that comes to mind is hundreds of colourful hot air balloons flying over spectacular natural landscapes. Witness the incredible sight for yourself!
Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Ride
After being picked up from your hotel first thing in the morning, you'll be taken to the Cappadocia hot air balloon departure point, where you'll be served a light breakfast of tea, coffee and pastries.
Once the balloon is inflated, you'll climb into the basket and begin your ascent into the sky. With no noise from a motor engine disturbing you, travelling by hot air balloon is an incredibly peaceful experience, and you'll be able to fully enjoy the tranquillity of the landscape of Cappadocia from your place among the clouds.
Your hot air balloon ride lasts one hour and offers you unique views over a region that is challenging to explore over land. The magical scenery underneath you includes natural geological features like fairy chimneys, troglodyte caves and rock tunnels, which hint as to the long history and extensive cultural heritage that the ancient Turkish region is home to. You'll soon see why this is one of the world's most popular locations for ballooning!
Following your breath-taking hot air ballooning ride over Cappadocia, you'll return to land where you'll have the opportunity to toast to the experience with a glass of champagne. You'll also be given a certificate to remember your ride and prove you've ticked something off your bucket list!
At the end of your experience, you'll be taken back to your hotel for around 8 am.
