Hot-air Balloon Tours

Price from £195 per person

Cappadocia is known around the world as one of the best places to fly with hot-air balloons. The spectacular surrealistic landscape, combined with excellent flying conditions, allows the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys and pigeon houses hewn from the unique rock formations, through beautiful orchards and vineyards and impressive valleys with distinctive rock formations and features – and then float up over rippled ravines for breath-taking views across the region.

Standard Hot-Air Ballooning Tours (1 hour) - Soar Above Cappadocia's Marvels

Our Standard Hot-Air Balloon Tour promises an unforgettable adventure with a minimum of 1 hour spent in the air. This enchanting experience begins early in the morning, typically before the sun graces the horizon. After a light breakfast, we'll pick you up from your hotel and whisk you away to your designated launch site, where you'll witness the mesmerizing inflation of the balloon.

Before taking flight, you'll receive a thorough passenger briefing, ensuring you are well-versed in the essential rules and safety protocols for your balloon journey. Then, the magic unfolds as you step into the balloon basket, marking the pinnacle of your Turkish adventure!

The ascent is gentle, allowing you to capture countless breathtaking photos of the captivating Cappadocian landscapes spread below. The flight concludes with a graceful landing, followed by a delightful Champagne toast to celebrate your once-in-a-lifetime experience. To commemorate your flight, you'll be presented with a flight certificate.

By the time the tour concludes, it'll be around 08:30 am, conveniently returning you to your hotel just in time for breakfast, your next daily tour, or perhaps a rejuvenating nap.

Elevate your Cappadocia visit with our Standard Hot-Air Balloon Tour, an adventure that will leave you with cherished memories and a sense of awe for this remarkable region.

The Deluxe Balloon Tour offers a minimum of 1.5 hours flight time. For people who are interested in photography and aviation, the deluxe tour is the perfect choice. The main difference between the deluxe and standard flights is that the deluxe has a longer flight time and also a smaller capacity - guests fly in smaller baskets, usually between 6 and 10 people.


What better way to celebrate that special occasion, be it an anniversary, birthday, wedding or any other important event, than by enjoying a balloon flight for two in a small balloon. Our VIP balloons are different from the other passenger balloons flying in Cappadocia – there is only room for the pilot and two passengers in the basket, so your flight is a very personal experience which can be tailored just for you and your partner.

The VIP flight offers all VIP services such as a private transfers to and from your hotel to the launch site, special drinks and refreshments at the launch site whilst the balloon is being inflated, a gentle balloon flight for two people, champagne and refreshments upon landing. You will also receive souvenirs of the flight and personalized flight certificates.

"We arrived home from Fethiye on Monday, and would just like to thank you and Akin for planning an amazing trip. The gulet was fantastic and as usual, the Ece Saray Hotel was lovely. The staff there are some of the best we have come across, and the breakfasts were great. We are looking ahead to 2023 and were wondering if you could arrange a quote for a similar trip."  Sue and Mike Fedeczko - 28 September 2022
