Hot Air Ballooning in Cappadocia

Hot air ballooning in Cappadocia, a historical region in Turkey’s Central Anatolia, yields breathtaking views, unrivaled anywhere.

Balloons launch just before dawn, dozens at a time.  They float silently above surrealistic landscapes dotted with villages, vineyards and fruit orchards. The balloon gently drifts over and between tall, thin  rock formations or ‘fairy chimneys’, through valleys and up over rippled ravines, before touching down in a farmer’s field.
