There are three types of hot air balloon flights in Cappadocia. Standard, Deluxe, and Private hot air balloon flights. (Standard: 1 hour, Deluxe: 1.5 hour, Private: 1.5 hour and private basket.)
Every season of Cappadocia takes place in different colors and beauties. That’s why balloon tours are held 12 months of the year when weather conditions are appropriate. For safety, wind speed should not be more than 11 km because of the rainy and stormy weather.
Urgup, Goreme, Avanos, such as the entire history of Cappadocia, where you can see a bird’s eye view of 4-20 km. Stone houses between the streets, Uçhisar Castle, Kızılırmak stream, Erciyes, a closer convergence of Hasan Mountain, rock-carved churches, pigeons valleys where the nest of pigeons, newly awakened valleys, green gardens, and natural stone-cut Cappadocia’s fairy chimneys greets you like.
The services are the same. The only difference is the landscape.
Cappadocia hot air balloon tour has been held for more than 20 years. The flight teams of the companies are well equipped. Pilots have a hot balloon license from FFA Civil aviation. Balloons are often checked and inspected in accordance with the directive established by the General Directorate of Civil Aviation under the Ministry of Transport and Maritime Affairs. The flight safety checks on the balloons are carried out on controlled flights with the compulsory flight insurance.
According to the new regulation, many companies in Cappadocia have a minimum price agreement in cooperation. The average flight time of the packages is almost 1 hour and the prices vary according to the season. As ToursCE, we offer you the lowest price.
The capacities of balloons in Cappadocia balloon tours can be different. One balloon is flying with an average capacity of 10-20 people. If the tour participant is over, another balloon is ventilated.
The moments you’ll have when you’re in the balloon will be as unique an experience as you can’t imagine. Remember to take a camera to immortalize these moments. You will enjoy by seeing yourself in the basket, as well as in the clouds and across Cappadocia.
The early hours of the day are cool in Cappadocia. Especially when the season falls and winter as the cold airwaves will rise a little more. So we recommend that you wear more than a coat of summer or winter. Since the balloons do not have sitting places, we should remind you that you should prefer shoes that will not wear you while you are standing for at least an hour.
There are many companies in Cappadocia who organize balloon tours professionally. You will fly with one of them. But, we cannot choose the company for the flight. The Balloon Union decides it.

Balloons used for the Cappadocia balloon tour consist of three parts. The dome part is the balloon itself and there is also a burning unit and a basket. In the basket part, passengers are transported and the burner part is located on the top of the passengers and is used to inflate the balloon with its strong flames. While the balloon is inflated by the warming of the air inside it, the balloon will be lowered by the cooling of it.
Since the balloon is made of Nomex style fireproof materials, there is no risk of burning.
The direction of the balloon is determined by the wind. The person using the balloon may decide on the direction of the balloon, albeit some.
10-20 people can ride in a hot air balloon at a time.
The duration of the balloon tour varies according to the type of flight and takes between 1 hour and 1.5 hours.
You can travel with balloons below 1000 to 1500 feet (900 meters) and you can easily see every detail of Cappadocia from this height.
If such a problem is encountered during the flight, the second burner will be activated and if there is a problem, the third burner will be activated. But if all of these possibilities are considered negative, which is very unlikely, the balloon will descend at a parachute speed.
The enormous size of the balloons already frightens the birds. With the rigid structure of the balloon, the birds will not be able to damage the balloon. However, even if they are likely to give a hole, balloons can fly.
Cappadocia hot air balloons are inflated in approximately 15 minutes and deflated in the same period.
The direction of the balloon is determined by the wind rather than by the human being. For this reason, the master person inside the balloon is landing at the appropriate descent points where the balloon can land.
Cappadocia balloon tours do not have a single route. Generally, these routes may vary depending on the weather. In general, however, there are trips between Avanos and Goreme.
In Cappadocia, you can take a tour with an air balloon in every season of the year. However, in April, May, October, November and January, you can make flights more comfortable and enjoyable.
These hours are both coldest and quietest. In order for the landing to be smooth and the balloon to rise to the desired level easily, morning hours are determined as the most suitable time for the flight. In addition, you can catch an amazing view of the morning sunrise by flying in the early morning hours.
Considering the fact that there are flights in both winter and summer months, this situation varies slightly. However, Jean and flat shoes can be preferred for summer and warm clothing will be suitable for winter. If the landing is in the middle of the land you can get flat-bottomed shoes and a jacket as a measure of descent situations. Do not miss the camera to take pictures of these beautiful moments in the balloon.
Since it is in motion when the balloon is rising, the wind will not be felt and the movement will not be affected like in the edge of a cliff. So far, many people with the fear of heights experienced this flight in the most comfortable way because of the fear of balloon flight and heights do not have a very close relationship.
Almost all flights are possible for all individuals aged 6 to 90 years. Individuals with the ability to climb into the basket can easily participate in the flight.
No pregnant or suspected pregnancy is included in balloon tours.
Patients who had surgery in the recent past
Children under 6 years
Those who have no mental balance
Those who have pain in the hips or waist should not fly by balloon.
A bird’s-eye view of all the beauties on earth is not an opportunity for everyone. It is one of the most romantic moments where you will have to fly with the wind, see the world through the eyes of the birds and watch the natural beauties of Cappadocia from the sky.
Here, you can have peaceful moments with your family or you can go on an adventurous journey alone or evaluate your special moments. Balloon tours where special moments are experienced in the most beautiful way, such as celebrating a birthday or offering a marriage, are ready to give you memories you never had. You can see the magnificent view of the fairy chimneys from the land up meters from the ground and you can immortalize them by taking into the frames.
When going to the flight, it is necessary not to wear long-heeled shoes or long dresses, for example, in a manner that presents a danger in the basket. It is best to dress like going to a walk-in everyday life considering the weather. Seasonal conditions must also be considered. We recommend that you take your video camera and a photo camera. Tall people can take hats with them in order to avoid being exposed to the warmth of the spray fires in the basket.
