Flying in a hot-air-balloon is an exquisite feeling anywhere in the world. But flying in Cappadocia is actually a privilege. The sort of flights we do here can not be done anywhere else in the whole world. All you can do with a hot air balloon is to make it go up or down, and make the balloon rotate around itself. Therefore the balloon is totally dependent on the prevailing wind and goes where the wind takes it.

Here in Cappadocia we fly within the valleys and around the fairy chimneys, very close to the ground, and the flights are so perfect, one would think that the balloon actually had steering facilities. But the explanation is rather simple. Cappadocia being in the middle of what is known as continental climate, there is a great difference of temperature between night and day. During the night, there accumulates a mass of cold air within the valleys. This mass begins to flow just like a river around sunrise time. It is thanks to this reliable flow that we manage to perform the astonishing flights that we do almost every day of the year.

Having achieved breakthroughs, Anatolian Balloons has the largest fleet and passenger capacity in the world in addition to the fact that it holds the only ISO 9001:2008 quality certificate. 

We are proud to offer the best services to our passengers.
