You'll also see the underground cities, where early Christians sought refuge from persecution and built elaborate networks of tunnels and rooms.

The hot air balloon flights in Cappadocia take place early in the morning, when the winds are calm and the air is cool. The flight lasts about an hour, and you'll have the chance to take in the breathtaking views as you float gently through the air.

Flights are operated by experienced pilots and follow strict safety guidelines. The balloons are equipped with modern navigation and safety equipment, and the flights are monitored by ground crew.

What should I wear?
Consider the existing weather conditions. Comfortable shoes with low heels are recommended. Sun glasses, hats and cameras (a must-have) are useful to have during a flight that will be remembered with laughter for a life-time.
How high up do we go?
Even though we will be flying very low for a while and pick fruits from the trees sometimes, we always go up-to 500 meters from the ground. When the wind is calm, we go higher than 1.000 meters.
Can children join the balloon flight?
The children under 6 years old are not allowed to fly.
Can I fly any time of the year?
Yes, balloon flights are organized every day of the year. however, due to weather conditions, cancellations may occur on a daily basis.
When do you cancel the flight?
When the ground wind is faster than 10 knots, during heavy rain or fog, the flight will be canceled. You will receive a full refund if we have to cancel your flight.
How far do we travel?
It can be between 4 to 20 km depending on the speed of the wind on the flight
Can pregnant join the balloon flight?
No. If you are pregnant or think that you might be pregnant, you shouldn’t fly with ballons due to possible bumpy landings.
Is the landing bumpy?
Occassionally. Balloons usually land very calmly but if the wind increases on landing there will be a bump and the basket will drag on the landing field until it comes to a halt.
Why do you fly so early in the morning?
The wind is not very fast, there are no thermals yet and it is not too hot.
How big are the baskets?
Balloon companies have baskets with different sizes. These baskets usually have a capacity of 20 or 28 people. However, these baskets are divided into sections within themselves. There are generally 4 people in one section.
