So close, yet so far from the glitz and the glamour of the city. Now only a 30 minute drive from the centre of Dubai! (Burj Khalifa) We collect you from your hotel within the urban area of Dubai or a specified meeting point and transfer you to the desert, where you'll enjoy a one hour flight. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains. Once we've touched down and enjoyed some refreshments we then drop you back off at your hotel.Flying daily from 20th September until the 31st of May each year.Closed 1st June until 19th of September each year.

What a superb adventure! I was perhaps just a little apprehensive not knowing much about the Company doing these balloon flights. All that subsided when we met the staff and our Captain, Mike. Extremely professional and safety conscious we were in good hands! Most definitely our choice of company was the correct one. The balloon trip itself was magnificent and... More

Something I've always wanted to do and it was even better than I could have hoped. There is nothing else I could possibly compare it to. The company was extremely professional and friendly. Unfortunately, we had severe fog on the morning so missed the sunrise as the crew are thankfully very safety conscious. I would love to do it again... More

Awakening in the morning at 3am. Oh no, I could get in my bed again. Then I look outside and see the stars and do remember: Today will be a special event. At 4am the driver of Balloon Adventures pick me up and takes also other guests. Before arriving to the departure place I get a glimpse of the infinite... More

A balloon ride is something that both myself and my husband have always wanted to do. What better way to experience a bird's eye view over the desert. We had an early start - I don't remember the time, just that it was dark and cold. We made our way to a the Retail Shopping Centre carpark and were driven... More

We stop every year in Dubai on our way to Europe and every year we do something different with the kids. This year we decided to do a hot air balloon trip (21st-december). My daughter and I previously did a first hot air balloon trip in the Loire Valley (which was fantastic as you fly above beautiful castles along the... More

My husband just brought me on a balloon ride with Balloon Adventures. What an amazing experience. Our Pilot Mike was the friendliest German I have ever met! His customer service was superb. The company is extremely safety focused and were very thorough. The experience was well organized. This experience is the best I've ever done and after living in Dubai... More

This is well worth getting up early for and is good value for money. We had a fabulous flight and were lucky to have good conditions to see the sunrise with a bit of cloud and travel over the nature reserve. We started off by going up above the clouds to watch the sunrise and then travelled low across the... More

A van picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, we had to be up at 5.30am to catch the sunrise in time. It was a little cloudy when we were in the balloon but the views from above the clouds were spectacular. There were approximately 25 pax of us in a single balloon, still there were ample... More

Hot air ballooning is definitely not a routine thing to do, so you will surely enjoy the balloon ride. You have to be on site prior sunrise, and pray that weather/winds favours you. Although rides are planned as per weather forecasts, but a slight increase in wind can cancel your ride. I assume that in that case they will refund... More
