Let Archaeologous arrange this most popular activity in Cappadocia. Take a sixty or ninety minute "Hot Air Balloon Ride" over Cappadocia which is an invigorating sunrise adventure memory of a lifetime.
It's either a 60 minute flight (maximum of 20 persons), or 90 minute flight (up to a maximum of 12 persons) that starts early in the morning hours to catch the sensational sunrises and will allow you a bird’s eye view of the rising sun over the ancient carved minuets of Cappadocia. The balloons will climb approximately 300 meters (1000 feet) during the flight allowing you to witness the marvelous panoramic view of kilometers of vistas and breathtaking nature. You drift above the valleys and between the other-worldly rock formations below in a flight that always is unique.
Each flight is slightly different as the balloons are moved by the wind and you will float wherever the wind takes you; so that each flight brings new and memorable experiences. We advise, of course, that each passenger dress according to the seasonal temperature. Flat shoes, hat, sunglasses and of course camera is a must. The flight presents many Kodak moments and a lifetime of memories to cherish
After pickup from your lodging you're escorted to the meeting point where you will have a delicious catered breakfast buffet. After your pilot chooses the launch site, you will get to witness how the crew and pilot unload, assemble and inflate your balloon. Then a safety briefing and “voila”…you begin your personalized flight. Know that champagne and your "Gold Medal Memento" await you upon your landing if you've taken the 1 ½ hr flight to mark this unique occasion.
The balloon company we use Royal King Flights use balloons that are exclusively made and are the only “silver coated “ balloons in the region to ensure quality and safety. All passengers are covered with Eureko Insurance Company insurance.
PS If you would like to go on a 60 minute flight, then the capacity is up to 20 guests, the balloon is larger and you would receive a “Silver Medal” and champagne after your flight. Your choice.
