Up in the Sky: The Hot Air Balloon Journey Above Cappadocia Sky

SEE THIS POST AND MORE ON OUR NEW SITE.

The hot air balloon ride is likely one of the must-dos for people visiting the Cappadocia region. With its uniquely eroded limestone canyon and excellent hot air balloon flight conditions, Cappadocia is known for its hot air balloon rides. A standard 60-min ride allows its passengers to see the surreal geological landscape from above, with a likely chance to view the valleys up close in between the artistic rock formations. Since the balloon pilots cannot determine the direction headed, every flying journey is unpredictable and no two experiences are the same. This is literally the ultimate zen “go-with-the-flow” experience!
