Where to book your Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Ride

There are many different companies that flies in Cappadocia, and a hundreds of Balloons flying everyday on high season! So when it comes to choosing your flight you’ll be spoilt for choice. You can choose online among many options or, as we did, you can reserve your flight from the hotel you’re staying in.

Although you should know that If you’re going during high season (July and August) there’s an high demand. If you’re staying for a short time 4 days or less you should book online. So that you’re sure you can fly.

We were at the Tourist Hotel & Resort that is affiliated with Saray Balloons. If you’re choosing this option the bus will pick you directly from the hotel. It’s very practical especially If you don’t have a car.

The cost of a Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Ride varies depending on the duration and number of passengers. Going from 150€ up to 600€ if you’re booking the solo experience. The duration varies from a 1 hour flight up to 3 hours for the deluxe experience. On Viator you have multiple choices.

Prepare your ride

Balloons fly at sunrise. That implies a wake up call at 5 AM to take the bus. Cappadocia is a desert land. As such temperatures go lows during night. Don’t forget to dress with warm clothes for your Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Ride.

Also dress comfortable! I have a series of funny shoots (that I won’t share, sorry! 🙂 ) of me getting off the basket. Diplomatic accident avoided. Seriously, forget the beautiful flowing dresses and dress comfortably. Pants and baskets are required.

Also consider bringing sunglasses, hats and a sunscreen. The ride may last more hours and the temperature is going to change.

Bring your sense of adventure and enjoy!

Check your camera’s battery, set your adventurous mood on and enjoy! You’re going to live one of the most exciting travel experiences. As one video is worth a million words enjoy the video from our Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Ride experience.
