Balloon Adventures
Updated on 24 August 2015

Take a magic carpet ride across rolling red sand dunes, with an amazing bird's eye view of the untouched desert below.

The early morning sunrise flight is a breathtaking adventure not to be missed. Imagine floating along, letting the air currents take you wherever they feel, surrounded by the cool and serene morning ambience, all while watching the spectacular images unfold across the desert landscape as the sun creeps over the horizon.

There is a good chance of spotting wandering camels, gazelles and oryx that roam the conservation area, or maybe even meet up with falconers or farmers as you land - so don't forget your camera!

Pick-ups are arranged from meeting points across Dubai, followed by transfers out to the desert to enjoy a one hour flight across the dunes. Once you touch down, enjoy the cold refreshments while you recollect all the beautiful things you saw with your group, and collect your flight certificates from your Captain. Then head back to town where you'll be dropped off to enjoy the rest of your day.

A balloon ride is a great adventure, ideal for birthdays, anniversaries or for those who have visiting friends and family.

Price: AED 995 per person or AED 850 (5-12years) including:
• Transfers to and from the take off area
• Approx 1 hour balloon flight
• Cold refreshments on landing
• Flight certificate from the pilot.

* All flights are weather permitting
** Recommended for children age 7 years and upwards.

Gift vouchers and private charters are available; please call for more details.

Testimonials:

We flew with Balloon Adventures for my 50th birthday, it was a great surprise birthday present and a wonderful flight. The crew were very experienced and professional, we had amazing views of the desert and mountains and the whole experience was very memorable and fun. I'd recommend a balloon flight to everyone!

I loved the experience. Mary Poppins has nothing on Balloon Adventures. Flying over the Al Ain desert during sunrise is indescribable. It's a very surreal journey, almost magical! The staff were amazing and I'm sure Peter (the pilot) was a comedian in his past life. Any nerves are soon put at ease as he begins his comical skit from transfer collection, during the surreal journey and return to reality. Dare to make your day different and a memory to remember, fly in a balloon today!
