Hot Air BalloonFlight – 05:00AM to 08:00AM

There is a reason Cappadocia is famous for its hot air balloons.Every morning just after dawn the sky is filled with balloons of all coloursfloating dreamily across the valleys. The feeling of being up in the air isincredible and every journey is guaranteed to be unique and magical. Eachballoon flight relies on an unrepeatable pattern of wind conditions and istherefore an experience to cherish forever.

We welcome our visitors in style by picking them up dirctly fromtheir accommodations in service mini-vans and bringing them to the main officeof the company they are flying with. Visitors are then checked off the guestlist and given a balloon pass/safety information card, before being registeredfor the flight. After registration, visitors are welcome to enjoy a full buffetbreakfast with fruit, cereal, cakes and wide selection of drinks. Later,visitors are invited back to the mini-vans and transported to the balloonlaunch site, which is usually a short 10-minute drive.

Visitors arrive at the launch site in time to see the balloonitself being inflated with large industrial-sized fans. The sky is dark at thispoint, providing the first photographic opportunity – the chance to capture theballoons spread out in the valley, sporadically illuminating with the light of powerful orange flames asthey steadily inflate.

The standard balloon basket is divided into four sections, withfive visitors per each section. This is the optimal layout that ensures theweight the basket will carry is evenly spread out and balanced. Flight crewmembers are on hand at all times to answer questions and to assist visitorsinto the basket once the balloon is fully prepared for its voyage. And then atlast the balloon takes off and the adventure begins!

Take-off in a hot air balloon in Cappadocia is so smooth thatvisitors will not feel the moment the balloon leaves the ground and enters theair. The ascent is steady and dreamlike and the wind determines the directionof travel. Fellow balloons fill the sky above, below and around, creating thesea of hot air balloons suspended over the volcanic valleys of Cappadocia.

Flight durations may vary but most of them last approximately onehour. Over the course of the flight, the sun climbs higher and higher, slowlyfilling the landscape with an incredibşe warm glow that has to be seen to bebelieved. Balloon captains in Cappadocia are among the most experiencedballooning practitioners in the world. We ask our visitors to watch out for theway that captains are frequantly able to land the balloon basket directly onthe truck trailer bed. Landings are one of the most exciting moments andhandlers are fixed inside the baske for visitors to steady themselves (thoughthey are more of a precaution than necessity).

After disembarking, visitors are again met by crew members who helpthem to go our of the basket, pour out champagne and give our certificatesmemorialising the flight.
