Rising from the plains of Anatolia, Cappadocia is an ancient, fairytale landscape famous for its honeycombed underground cities and towering, chimney-shaped rocks. Get a bird’s-eye view of the unforgettable scenery from the region’s best vantage point: by hot-air balloon. You also enjoy a breakfast buffet and a post-flight toast of Champagne.

    Stop: 45 minutes -
    The Cappadocia region of Turkey is the perfect location for a hot-air balloon flight, thanks to its outstandingly beautiful landscapes and great weather conditions. After complimentary pickup from your hotel by comfortable, air-conditioned minivan, take in views of the Turkish countryside as you head to the hot-air balloon office, where you’ll enjoy a complimentary buffet breakfast of fruit, pastries, meats and salads. Head to the nearby launch field and watch as your 100-foot tall (30-meter) hot-air balloon is inflated before boarding the balloon basket with your experienced pilot. Then, up you go! Feel the subtle motion of the balloon as it lifts up over the stunning volcanic landscape. On your safe, scenic, flight, enjoy panoramic views of the Cappadocia relief, a high plateau standing more than 3,281 feet (1,000 meters) above sea level and pierced by tall, thin volcanic spires. As you fly through the Cappadocia valleys, take a close look at the rock formations and listen to your pilot's interesting commentary about Cappadocia's history and geological formations. See churches and houses carved into the rocks as the balloon climbs approximately 1,000 feet (300 meters). After your flight, raise your glass for a Champagne toast while being presented with a silver or gold medal as a flight souvenir. Then, relax on the drive back to your hotel. The 1-hour flight holds up to 20 people; for a more intimate experience, take the 75 miutes ride, which guarantees a maximum of 12 people.

What to Expect
Your Cappadocia tour begins with a front-door pickup at your hotel. Settle back for a scenic and comfortable ride through the Turkish countryside as you head to the hot-air balloon office, where you enjoy a delicious breakfast spread. From there, move to the nearby launch field to watch your 100-foot-tall balloon fill with air. Board the basket and feel the balloon lift as the distance between you and the Earth increases. Soon, you have a bird’s-eye view of the incredible lunar landscapes, stone-cut churches, volcanic spires, and multicolored “fairy chimneys” that make up Cappadocia. As you reach the cruising level of 1,000 feet, your pilot gives you information on the unique geological history of the region, which has been inhabited since ancient times. You even spot the old volcano that helped create this otherworldly scenery. After your ride, refresh yourself with a celebratory Champagne toast and even receive a silver or gold medal as a souvenir of your flight. You can choose between a 20-person balloon ride, or upgrade to a longer flight with a maximum of 12 people to enjoy a more intimate experience.
