Tour details:

The Balloon Adventures experience is so much more than just a hot air balloon ride. Floating at sunrise over the pristine dunes of the Dubai desert is something you will never forget. Your bucket list experience continues with a drive on vintage Land Rovers through the desert to reach an authentic heritage desert camp nestled in a Royal desert retreat. Your ultimate desert adventure ends with a gourmet breakfast and if you wish, a short camel ride. After an unforgettable morning in a magical setting in the desert, you’ll return to Dubai with your appetite for adventure fully satisfied!

Spectacular Drone Show

Before the sun rises we will pick you up from your hotel to travel to the take-off point in the desert – not more than a 45-minute drive from the city. Once you have reached your destination, you will be welcomed with Arabic coffee and accommodated on comfortable cushions while gentle lights start painting the Arabian sky in the early morning. Get ready to witness a breathtaking drone show, offered complimentary, before embarking on your hot air balloon flight.


After meeting your pilot and going through a quick safety briefing, you will gather around your basket while your Pilot begins the thrilling process of inflation. You will climb into the basket and before you know it, you will begin to peacefully float off the ground and ascend into the sky.

Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride

As you float up in the sky, the hues along the horizon begin to transform into beautiful shades of yellows and oranges. Depending on which direction you are facing, you will see the Arabian sun rising behind the Hajar mountains over the desert dunes. 4,000ft in the sky is one of the best places in the world to witness the beauty of the sunrise. Look out for Arabian oryx, gazelles or wandering camels in the sand dunes below. Every balloon flight is approximately 1 hour long.

Landing in the Desert 

One of the most exciting aspects of hot air ballooning is the landing! Depending on the winds, you will have a new adventure every time as the landing is always different, and in a different location! The Pilot will scout the vast desert for a suitable location and tell you it is time to attach your safety belts and embrace the landing position a few minutes before the balloon touches the ground.
