Fly High in Hot Air Balloon Cappadocia

“Cover the Earth before it covers you!”

This was how we felt moments before we were about to take our Cappadocia balloon ride. It was the adrenaline! Cappadocia is in the heart of Turkey, known for its fairy chimneys and breathtaking landscapes. The famous Cappadocia balloon tour is the best way for you to drown in the aura of this god’s masterpiece.

The Cappadocia balloon ride is something that you must have on your bucket list! 3000 feet above the ground, everything seems like a fairytale. We had seen so many mesmerising pictures that we knew we had to tick this off our Turkey itinerary.

We booked our Cappadocia balloon tour with “Voyager Cappadocia,” and the experience surpassed our expectations! If you’re wondering about the Cappadocia balloon ride price, keep reading this till the end.

Our Ride to Heaven

We’ve all witnessed sunrise before, but the breathtaking sunrise view from a hot air balloon Cappadocia cannot be described in words.

As the sun rises from the horizon, you witness something surreal! You look forward, and you see the majestic sun rising; you look around and see 150 other turkey balloons witnessing the magic happen in awe. You look down, and you get to see the majestic landscapes getting the first light of the day; you see fairy rocks, and for a second, you think that the legend that says that these rocks have fairies living in them might actually be true because it’s just so beautiful.

We flew over some major landmarks in the city, and all of this was done with full safety precautions and under the presence of a skilled pilot. We marked the completion of our ride by getting a “certificate of flight attendance” and later enjoyed a light breakfast with flight companions. We held our champagne glasses high as we toasted to a memorable experience, something we’ll take with us for the rest of our lives!

All in all, it’s something words, pictures, or videos cannot describe. It’s safe to say that the Cappadocia balloon ride is one of the best experiences to take in Turkey.
