ONCE IN YOUR LIFE!
Balloon tour is highly recommended in Cappadocia. Amazing landscape of Unesco World Heritage can be seen from Balloon. There are several balloon flight companies, some details can be different depend on companies. Please ask for more informations.
Tour Schedule :
Pick up from hotel before sunrise. Have tea or coffee in the area of taking off untill balloon is ready. And take off. Beautiful sunrise can be seen and starts to travel in the air. Enjoy watching fairy chimney, interesting shape of caves and nature of Cappadocia from balloon. After landing, celebrate landing with champaign. Get your own certificate of balloon. And back to hotel.
The best weather conditions are usually at this time. Usually the wind is not very strong at early mornings and there are no thermals. Plus it’s a wonderful view to watch the sunrise from a hot air balloon!
What do you have to wear?
The weather can be a little chilly at early morning and quite cold in winter time. But as the sun goes up it will get warmer. So it’s best to wear in layers. Warm and long trousers, t-shirt and long sleeve pullover or sweatshirts, and suitable footwear for an outdoor will be best options to wear. In winter or early spring times it’s best to bring a coat with you.
Where the balloons take off from?
The take-off site can change according to the direction and the speed of the wind. But you can be sure that whereever the balloons may take-off from you will still be able to see the the most charming valleys and most beautiful views of Cappadocia.
How High the balloons go?
Again this depends on the wind. If the weather is calm the balloons can go up to 1000 feet. And sometimes can go as low as you can pick fruits from the trees.
Can you bring your children?
The hot air balloons can accept children over 7 years old children but unfortunately not younger than that. And please note that pregnant women also not allowed at the balloon.
Can you fly with Hot Air Balloon in winter time?
Yes, hot air balloons are operating all year long but from October to March, there may be more cancellations due to weather conditions.
When does a flight will be cancelled?
Basically the important point here is the velocity of the wind. Again if the rain is very heavy or there is fog the flight may be cancelled. To be able to take off safely the wind has to be less than 10 knots. If you have couple of days in the region you can try to fly the next mornings. But if you don’t have time or don’t want to try again, you will receive a full refund if we have to cancel your flight.
