FAQs

Why ballooning famous in Cappadocia?

Flights are operated just in the early mornings when the weather conditions are stable, not windy and with mild temperature. The scenery from a balloon over Cappadocia is breathtaking. While soaring between the rock formations and valleys of Cappadocia, you will have plenty of time to enjoy and photographing the scenery.
Which days balloons are operated?
Hot air balloon flights are in Cappadocia scheduled for each morning during sunrise all year round.
What happens if my hot air balloon flight cancelled due to bad weather?
If flight cancellation made by the Turkish Civil Aviation Authority (due to bad weather), you can choose to reschedule it to next day (subject to availability) or get a full refund.
Who decides cancellation of the hot air balloon flights?
Hot air balloon flights are depending on weather conditions. Turkish Civil Aviation Authority that gives approval of balloon flights if the weather conditions are within limits. This applies to all hot air balloon companies in Cappadocia.
Why hot air balloon flight happens early morning?
Hot air balloon need stable wind to operate effectively and the sunrise hours are the best for finding these winds. Since hot air balloons move with the air, the weather is very important in deciding to whether or not to fly. The pilot chooses a launch site to use the wind currents to fly towards a suitable landing site.
Can I record or take photos during the flight?
Yes, there is no problem taking photo or recording during the flight. A hot air balloon makes a perfect camera platform and there is always plenty to photograph prior to, during and after to the flight.
Where does balloon land?
Good question! The simple answer is that nobody knows, exactly! The pilot will have done flight planning before the launch to ensure that the forecast wind direction does not take the balloon towards an unsuitable area. He will use the different air currents at different altitudes to steer the balloon toward a good landing place. The pilot also closely follows agreements with local landowners. This means that the balloon won't fly too close to livestock or land in areas planted with valuable crops.
What if I'm afraid of heights?
Flying in a high sided balloon basket is not like standing in a roof or a high ladder. You don't get that vertigo feeling. It is more like the ground is unfolding beneath you and because you are moving with the wind, there is no wind blowing. The basket does not rock or sway so you can't possibly fall out.
How high hot air balloons fly?
Most balloonists enjoy low level flight. The typical balloon flight would be anywhere from tree level to about 900 meters (3,000 feet) above the ground. For Cappadocia Balloon flights, it is not really necessary climbing to high altitudes. For a short time, its good to have panoramic view of Cappadocia then it might be boring. Also most of he time, there are strong air currents in higher altitudes to carry the balloon way far from the most significant areas.

once-in-a-lifetime experience

It was absolutely out of the world. The staff was amicable and very interactive throughout the flight. Provides a panoramic view of the entire area and definitely needs to be added to your bucket list if you plan to visit Turkey anytime soon! Went with my family and cousins and enjoyed it so much! You definitely get your money's worth!

Es el sitio que más barato vimos, volamos por 160€ por persona. Hacen lo mismo que todos, te recogen en el hotel, te dan el desayuno viendo montar los globos, vuelo de 60 minutos y luego te dan champán y un diploma. Una experiencia inolvidable.

I booked an ATV tour online for 2 adults and assumed this meant we'd have 2 ATVS, which was not the case, we only had 1 reserved. Fortunately we were able to arrange a second ATV onsite. The tour lasted 2 hours and we went through some fields, up to the rim of Love Valley and ended in a nice spot to catch the sunset. My partner put it succinctly when he said "ATVs are a cancer to this place" which is absolutely true. Cappadocia is completely overrun by tourists on ATVs (had I known this before, I would not have booked the tour) which is really unfortunate. The sunset spot was overcrowded with vendors and tourists taking selfies, all while inhaling the fumes of burning plastic and exhaust. The guys leading our tour were not friendly nor did they share any information about the region or areas we traveled through. They did however seem to enjoy showing off their ATV handling skills by riding around the rock formations at full blast, sometimes carrying young women along for a 'wild ride'. When we weren't trying to avoid serious injury by getting hit by an ATV guide, we were watching out for the jeep tours plowing full speed across the rock formations. I'm sure many people enjoy these tours, but I wouldn't recommend them if you're interested in learning about the region and you care about how your tourism is impacting the places you visit.
