What To Expect

Wake early and begin your hot-air balloon Dubai experience with a pickup from your Dubai hotel or central meeting point. Hop inside your air-conditioned minibus, and travel to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve outside the city.

After a scenic drive, arrive at the launch site, and watch as your hot-air balloon is inflated for your flight. Listen to a safety briefing before climbing inside the basket with an experienced pilot at the controls. Each basket holds up to 24 passengers, and there’s plenty of space for you to sightsee as you fly.

As you rise higher, take in views of the sunrise, and hear commentary from your pilot about the geology and wildlife of the protected Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Then enjoy a unique opportunity to watch falcons fly up to 4,000 feet (1219 meters) above the Earth in a trained demonstration.

After the flight, you' are driven to a private desert conservation reserve in a vintage 1950s Land Rover where you have the chance to freshen up at clean, private bathrooms. A gourmet breakfast of delicacies, such as hand-cut smoked salmon and caviar is served.

Afterward, return to your minibus and end your experience with a hotel drop-off.

Once in a lifetime adventure
Kelly_V, May 2022
Literally everything about this experience was excellent. Our driver/guide Stephan could not have been more wonderful..friendly, helpful, etc. The drone show, ballon ride and breakfast all greatly exceeded our expectations. And a wonderful plus was the camel ride at the end! Do not miss this experience!
We had fun!
Natasha_W, Apr 2022
Hot air balloon was brilliant, probably could of done without the breakfast afterwards, would of been better to come straight back, but we still had fun! And the driver was very nice and friendly.
Up up and away…

Worth Every Penny

Awesome !

Taking off into the skies and gliding effortlessly at 4k ft. Just never forgettable. Peering in at sunrise at such height just another wonderful experience
Unbelievable experience!
Fiona_M, Mar 2022
Unbelievable experience for my husbands surprise birthday present , very impressed from start to finish, we were well looked after by a very professional team no short cuts , our pick up was punctual, fun and full of information, comms were excellent and kept you fully informed the day prior to flight, our captain Hylke was great , very informative , ballon ride was surreal stunning views as well as seeing onyx to camels and of course the amazing sunrise, safety briefing very thorough , the drone at the start was fab , the vintage land rover transfer to our breakfast destination through the sand dunes was a great experience, breakfast covered all options, it is chilly first thing so a fleece or jacket is needed. Definitely value for money, a must if visiting Dubai … would highly recommend will not be disappointed.
What a ride!
