The balloon flights in Cappadocia are always very early in the morning in order to capture the awe-inspiring sunrises across the Cappadocia landscape.

Pick up time: Between 4:00 am and 5:00 am depending on your hotel location - our crew will inform you of your final pick up time the day before the flight.

Pre-flight: After the pick-up from your accommodation, you will be taken to the launch site where there is a light breakfast of coffee/tea and snacks. While the balloons are prepared and inflated, you are free to watch and take photos. These preparations take about 15min.

Take off and the flight: The balloons begin to take off at around sunrise and rise to around 1000 feet, giving you the experience of sunrise across Cappadocia's landscape. Perhaps just as spectacular is the sight of dozens of balloons drifting up with you - making the most memorable photos.
The balloon then descends and floats through the valleys, between the fairy chimneys and caves, giving you the best views of these bizarre formations.
Upon landing, there is a toast with sparkling wine! At about 7 am, our minibuses will take you back to your accommodation.

Excursion includes:
- Flight of approx. 1 hour. Excursion from pick-up to the sparkling wine toast lasts about 2 hours.
- We use 16-24 person capacity balloons with the Standard Balloon Flight.
- Transfers to / from your accommodation.
- Light breakfast of coffee/tea and snacks before take off.
- All passengers are insured up to 1,000,000 EURO
- A commemorative flight certificate or commemorative medallion
