“One of the best ways to discover this magic land is flying

over Cappadocia in a hot air balloon. Cappadocia is the only

place in Turkey where you can do a balloon flight. Flying over

fairy chimneys, deep canyons and valleys will be one of the

most unforgettable experiences of your lifetime. You will feel

the freedom on this journey . ”

Discovery Balon

The climate in Cappadocia is exceptional for flying balloons, due to its extremely calm and predictable nature. Flights generally take place in the early morning (because the weather is more stable), and the average distance we cover, in accordance with the wind speed and direction, is anywhere from two to fifteen miles. The height at which we fly will vary from tree top level - where we enjoy contour flying at low level amongst the ‘Fairy Chimneys’ in the canyons and valleys (for which the weather in Cappadocia is uniquely suited), to several thousand feet up: the perfect vantage point to observe the majesty of Cappadocia.

Deluxe Flight – This flight has a duration of between 1.5 and 2 hours, depending on weather conditions and terrain.
