If a balloon ride is on your bucket list, there's one place in the world you can't miss: the lunar landscape of Cappadocia, Turkey. Just hop in your basket and join the hosts of brightly hued balloons that float above the region's volcanic spires and honeycombed hills. Here are your options.
Breakfast and Bubbly Included
For an extra treat, include breakfast or Champagne with your ride. Enjoy a light meal before boarding and then toast your fellow travelers with a glass of bubbly when you land.
While group tours typically host up to 16 passengers, private balloon rides offer a more intimate experience. Soak up the scenery with your personal group of family or friends, and opt for private roundtrip transfers from your hotel to the launch site. Honeymooners: make the trip extra romantic with a private ride for two.
Sightseeing Combo Tours
If you're looking to incorporate additional sightseeing into your trip to Cappadocia, select a balloon ride that also includes a small-group city tour, or check out one of the multi-day offerings. These combo tours typically include a guided visit to Göreme Open-Air Museum, the Kaymakli Underground City and other top local attractions.
