Picture yourself going up in a hot air balloon at sunrise and seeing the golden hues of the desert from 1,200 metres above the dunes. The emerald-green oases and wandering camels are part of the visual delight as you soar into the skies. Experience it yourself on a daily tour or private charter.
Rise with the sun in a sky-high tour over the Dubai desert with the Emirate’s original hot air ballooners, Amigos Balloons. Flights take off between 5am and 6am (the best conditions for the tour) and last an hour.
With the air calm and cool, you’ll drift along to panoramic views of the sand dunes, sunrise, and mountains. The excitement doesn’t end once you land — at touchdown, you’ll take part in a celebratory breakfast where you’ll receive a certificate that proves it wasn’t all a dream.
Balloon Adventures Emirates
Step away from the city and float above the sands with a Balloon Adventures Emirates Hot Air Balloon Tour. With a staff of international pilots that have logged more than 60 years of flying experience, you’ll be in safe hands as you glide 1,200 metres above the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve.
The adventure starts at sunrise, followed by an hour-long flight that’s worth the early wake-up. Following whichever way the desert breeze blows, you’ll get breathtaking views of the rolling red sands, rising sun, grazing gazelles, and majestic Hajar Mountains. With a variety of packages to choose from, you can make it a romantic rendezvous, a corporate celebration, or an unforgettable family fun day.
