Everything started about 25 years ago, when the balloon flights, which were launched by the American balloonist Buddy Bombard for trial purposes, gradually became an industry. Traveling in the balloon started the tourism of traveling the sky. This tourism has spread over a wide geography, including Cappadocia.
We estimate that approximately 3 to 5 thousand people travel with balloons every year. The season of this extraordinary experience begins here in April and continues until the end of November. You can watch Cappadocia from the sky with optional long and short flights that last 1 hour 15 minutes or 45 minutes, and you can see the points you cannot reach on foot, thanks to the hot-air balloon tour. For those who say it's scary to be flying that high, don't worry, we can say that air measurements are made every morning before flights. The winds are examined and then the most suitable flight location is determined (this is usually the south of Uchisar) and you start a journey.
You have to get up early in the morning to be able to tour around Cappadocia. You are taken to the departure point of the balloons by sightseeing buses. After all the equipment is prepared and the necessary preparations are made, you get on the balloons.
Depending on the width of the hot-air balloon basket you are on, flights are made in groups of 8, 10, 12 and 20 people. But if you are planning a romantic trip, you can also arrange a special organization for you. For example, a romantic marriage proposal in the clouds can take its place in your memory as an unforgettable memory for years. You can feel yourself in the land of fairy tales while gliding like a bird over an extraordinary Cappadocia landscape. As long as the weather conditions are suitable, the flight continues along the route Uchisar, Guvercinlik, Goreme, Kizilvadi, Zelve and Dervent. After your tour ends, you can crown your trip with an 18th century tradition of champagne drinking ceremony.
