Discover the desert from the sky with Balloon Adventures
Head up high for the ultimate aerial adventure and once-in-a-lifetime memories. Hot air ballooning is on the top of many travellers’ bucket lists and it’s easy to see why Dubai is one of the best places in the world to experience this exciting activity. Gazing at the vastness of the desert at 3,000 feet is especially magical. You get to spot native wildlife such as camels, Arabian oryx and gazelles. The sun rising over the landscape is truly breathtaking, as the sunlight reflects a range of hues across the sand dunes.
Dubai is also the only place in the world where you get to fly with falcons. Falconry is strongly rooted in the cultural heritage of the UAE and witnessing these majestic creatures soaring around the balloon basket in full flight while you float above the desert is a truly special sight. After the hot air balloon ride, you get to feast on a gourmet breakfast of smoked salmon, eggs Benedict and more in a traditional Bedouin camp in the middle of the desert. During the summer months of June through to August, hot air balloons aren’t able to fly due to the change in air temperature, so this May, don’t miss the chance to experience this ultimate adventure. 04 4409827
