Hot Air Balloon Rides in Turkey 2024/2025

The best way to see the captivating landscape of Turkey is on a hot air balloon ride. Soar high in the sky painted with vivid colors of the early morning sun for an unforgettable experience. Turkey is filled with locations for this world-famous activity. The mystical region of Cappadocia is a bona fide dream world, and one of the most famous ballooning destinations. It is popular for its landscape of fairytale-like rock formations, where traces of advanced ancient civilizations are carved into the karst stone. Pamukkale also offers a unique flight experience as you rise high above the otherworldly “cotton-castle” travertines, and the ancient city of Hierapolis.

“Mi amiga y yo decidimos pasar por Capadoccia durante nuestro viaje a Estambul. Para recorrer los lugares mas interesantes de la ciudad decidimos contratar a un guOa espaÐol con Tour Altikum Travel. AllO conocimos a Ilyas. Nos sorprendiN cNmo aprendiN espaÐol tan bien y en tan solo 5 meses! Con _l conocimos la historia de Capadoccia y la formaciNn de sus famosas chimeneas de ls hadas, tomamos t_ de manzana, nos reOmos y, ademas, nos hizo unas fotos y unos videos espectaculares para instagram. Sin duda, un guOa mas que recomendable. My friend and I decided to visit Capadoccia during our trip to Istanbul. We want to visit the most interesting places in the city, so we decided to pay to Spanish guide. There we met Ilyas. It's amazing how he learned Spanish so well in just 5 months!

“A wonderful 2 day Capadocia tour arranged by Sedef Tours Turkey. We had 2 great tour guides on both days that were knowledgeable and adapted to our needs. The best of all the was service by Sedef Tour agency , who was always available 24/7 !! We had some issues with the drivers they arranged, either late to pick us up or took us to the wrong address but we could always contact Sedef and they would always assure us and let us know what was happening. Extra bonus from the tour, was that we were upgraded to the penthouse in MDC cave hotels Capadocia and we had a totally pimped out luxury car to and from the airport in Istanbul __ Thanks Sedef and we would definitely recommend this to anyone traveling to Turkey”
Amazing trip

Hot Air Balloon Rides in Turkey

Types of flight

Cappadocia hot air balloon rides come in all shapes and sizes. Standard flights last around an hour, and each basket takes around 16 to 24 people. You can also enjoy a deluxe flight of 1.5 hours, with fewer people per balloon.

Pamukkale group hot air balloon flights last for an hour and come with a champagne breakfast. A private flight can last up to two hours and offers the ultimate luxury experience in an intimate setting.

Where to ride a Hot Air Balloon in Turkey

Fly high in the orange sky on a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia.
Cappadocia is one of the most popular destinations in the world for a hot air balloon ride.
Pamukkale is filled with travertine pools and hot air balloons.
You can usually find cheaper hot air balloon rides in Pamukkale.
  • Cappadocia: The fastest way to get to Cappadocia is to fly. There are regular flights from Istanbul, which roughly take 1.5 hours. A cheaper option is to take a 12-hour bus or travel by train. You can also rent a car or get a private driver to take you on a scenic road trip of around eight hours. For more information, check out our guide on how to get to Cappadocia from Istanbul.
  • Pamukkale: Pamukkale is in the south of Istanbul and the closest airport is Denizli Airport. There are several flights a day and you will reach Pamukkale in an hour. You can also hire a car or a driver to take you on a 7-8 hour journey, join a group tour or buy a bus ticket. While Pamukkale is not nearly as popular as Cappadocia, hot air balloon rides here are budget-friendly.

When to go for Hot Air Balloon rides in Turkey

The best time for a hot air balloon ride in Turkey is in spring (April-June), and in autumn (September-October). The weather is mild over most parts of the country in the shoulder seasons. If you can stand the heat, you should consider booking your trip in July when Cappadocia hosts the annual Turkey Hot Air Balloon Festival.

Tour highlights of Hot Air Balloon rides in Turkey

  • Enjoy a champagne breakfast with your hot air balloon ride looking at the sun rising over the horizon.
  • Soak in the view from the top as the gigantic rock formations of Cappadocia take on a new life.
  • Have the best view of the magical blue travertines and see their full spectrum as they spill over the hill.

Travel tips for Hot Air Balloon rides in Turkey

  • Bring a jacket for the hot air balloon ride, as it gets cold in the air, even in mid-summer.
  • Never book your flight for the last day of your visit. There is always a chance of cancellation owing to inclement weather. So, having a buffer day or two will do you well.
  • Do not book your flight the day after flights have been canceled. Prices usually go up after a canceled flight day.
  • Try to book an early morning flight to get the best view of the sunrise.
