Cappadocia Hot Air Balloon Tour


Balloon Flight in Cappadocia 

Hot Air Balloon Tours take place between 04:30 and 09:00 in the morning at dawn. You will be picked up from your hotel at the hour decided one day before and transferred to the balloon take-off location in the morning. You’ll be offered breakfast, and as you enjoy your coffee or tea and delicious snacks in the open air, you will have the chance to watch the flight preparations closely; the process of filling the hot air balloon with air by the pilot and the crew and how the baskets and other apparatus are mounted. Note that the pilots choose the best take-off place according to the direction of the wind. When the flight preparations are completed, and the permission to fly is given by the Civil Aviation Authority, the boarding process starts on hot air balloon baskets for 8-16-20 persons, which are made of light, flexible and durable materials.

Soon enough, the balloons will start moving with the wind and take you on a journey above the fairy-tale world of Cappadocia. As you rise from the heart of Cappadocia, you will witness the magnificent view of the fairy chimneys and rock formations shrinking before your eyes, and glide over the magical fairy chimneys and valleys. Balloons can limb up to 300 meters (1000 feet) above the ground, however, the favorite altitudes of balloon passengers are the lower ones, as this allows them to see the beauty of fairy chimneys closer.

The flight, which lasts for about 1 hour as the sun rises above Cappadocia, ends on a cheerful note with a celebration. As a tradition, every balloon flight is concluded with a celebration upon landing with a bottle of champagne, and a flight certificate is given to each passenger in their name.

At the end of this event, you’ll be transferred back to your hotel.

General Information About Hot Air Balloon Tours 

Balloons are made of a very light, reinforced nylon fabric called Hyperlast. The passenger baskets are woven from flexible and strong mats and lightweight materials such as fiberglass or aluminum. The basket is connected to the envelope with stainless steel and strong ropes.


Balloon Preparation: To prepare the balloon for a flight, the envelope is removed from the basket (or bag) and laid on the ground lengthwise. The burners are attached to the vertical posts and the basket is attached to the cables under the envelope. A motor-driven fan is used to inflate the envelope with cold air. When partially inflated, the air is heated by a burner and the envelope rises above the basket. With more heating, there is enough “lift” for the balloon to fly.


The Flight Direction of the Balloons: Balloon pilots plan their flight prior to launch to prevent the balloon from drifting to an unsuitable area. They use different air currents at different altitudes to guide the balloon to a good landing site and avoid landing on agricultural lands and places that are close to livestock not to cause any harm to the crops and animals. Passengers generally like lower-level flights to see fairy chimneys up close, however, on a typical balloon flight, the balloon will fly at varying heights, from tree level to approximately 900 meters above the ground so that the passengers can see the panoramic view of Cappadocia for a short time. The pilot has to adjust the flight distance according to the direction and strength of the wind.

Flight Duration: The tour takes approximately 3 to 4 hours, including hotel pick-up and drop-off. Preparing the balloon normally takes about 30 minutes. The flight itself normally takes about 60 to 90 minutes. After the flight, the champagne celebration lasts approximately 30 minutes and the return to the hotel takes approximately 30 minutes. Balloons always carry enough fuel for at least 2 hours of flight and 30 minutes of reserve capacity.
Landing location can be anywhere within 3-15 kilometers depending on the speed of the wind and weather conditions when flying at various altitudes.

Clothing: Clothing is important in balloon tours, as higher altitudes are colder than the ground altitudes. For example, it is 3-5 degrees colder at 300 meters above the ground. You can benefit from the heat as the pilot uses the burners all the time during the flight. Wearing warm clothes, wool socks, and thermal underwear for winter flights is strongly recommended.
