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.

I am sure it's great experience. I would love to do it, but unfortunately it's too expensive . May be because of the monopoly on it.

Hi, Sorry, but your comment is grossly misguided. No one has a monopoly on anything in Dubai. Dubai is one of the most business-friendly places in the world. Anyone can set up a business here! Pricing of products and services is a complex issue and many variables are involved. Obviously , one cannot and should not compare prices in Dubai... More

Departure at 4:30am from our hotel in Dubai and less than an hour to reach de departure point in the desert. It was a big balloon, we were 24 in 4 boxes but everybody can see easily. Captain Mike is a very good "driver", he is very safe. The flight lasts around 1 hour, the firts part is quite high... More

We had a requirement for a large corporate group. The team was super supportive throughout the planning phase and was flexible to our requirements. The end experience was amazing and a memorable one for us and our guests.

Hot air balloon adventure is one of the most amazing thing to add to your bucket list. An unforgettable life experience to fulfill your dream with all professional expertise. If you don't have a bucket list I recommend to have one and add this.

An absolutely amazing experience that I won't ever forget! Everything was as advertised and it all felt like a real adventure. Captains Peter and Kevin were very entertaining and both had a great sense of humour and professionalism. I thought the whole trip was great value and I would recommend that anyone with any sense of adventure should give this... More

If you're into sunrises this the best way to see it in Dubai. The ride is beautiful and peaceful. The desert looks different from this angle and the sunrise is beautiful. As you float through the desert you will see wildlife and the Emiratis training their falcons. The pilot is knowledgeable and makes you feel comfortable.

This was a first ever for me and I was a little nervous, but the team were very professional. Safety was clearly important, and the basket had lots of hand-holds to hold on to as well as safety belts with metal rings which clipped into carabinas attached to the floor. The basket had compartments which meant passengers were evenly spread.... More

We booked flight on 11 October, transfer was on time, but sadly there was a strong fog so the flight was delayed, meanwhile we were taken to gas station and offered a free coffee, captains were very friendly and cheerful, and positive that we will fly. Shortly the fog started to thicken and we were on the move to there... More

I was excited when the booking was made with Balloon Adventures and the experience fell nothing short of my expectations. The first time ride in a Hot Air Balloon was awesome. If you have the streak of adventure and love to explore this is for you. One starts early morning from the hotel at 4:45am (in my case) and it... More

Hi Gwendolyne, All of our videos are sent out within 3-4 days. There are situations, where your email server puts it into a SPAM folder, or in a case of company email addresses (which we ask not to use) it rejects the video attachment. We handle over a 100 videos a week, so there is a small chance that something... More
