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, you will be transfered to a desert camp in vintage 1950's Land Rovers for a gourmet breakfast of Eggs Benedict, Smoked Salmon, Caviar, bread selection and fruit.

We invited friends for a balloonride with Balloon Adventures Emirates and it was really something special, even for our friends which live in Dubai. The Captain from Italy gave us a feeling of security and made lot's of jokes with us. We could saw one sheik palace and many animals from above. After more than one hour we landed and... More

We had an amazing experience on our dawn balloon flight over the desert today. It was a fantastic morning from the pick up, the instruction, the flight, the crew, the views, the wildlife, the falconry to the tasty breakfast and super friendly, well trained and professional staff. I can't say enough about this company and all they offer. Thanks to... More

Balloon Adventu... E, Owner at Balloon Adventures Emirates, responded to this review

I am glad that you found our balloon flight amazing. We have our breakfast in a genuine Bedouin tent in the desert. We try our best to keep ants and other insects out of our camp, but it is virtually impossible to get rid of them completely. Our falcons are well trained and almost always come back to the falconer.... More

Well organised and professional. Thanks for a great day out. If I had one negative comment it would relate to the merchandising and sale of photographs. The process wasn't seamless or easy enough.

Do not miss this sightseeing ! Besides you wake up too early, my pick up time was 4h40 am, when the balloon is flying then you realize how beautiful is the desert. We had opportunity to see camels, gazelles, falcons, some oasis and want to thanks our experient pilot. Mr. Donatas.

Define life by the moments that take your breath away. This is definitely one of them. You are at the hands of the best hot air ballooning team in the world. To be above the golden desert of Dubai catching the sunrise, looking at wild camels running free is fulfilling a childhood fantasy, and a MUST on your bucket list.... More

I booked this around 6 months ago and the week before my flight they sent me a reminder email. They also called our hotel and told us the exact time of pick up which was 4:35am so a very early start! We drove an hour out of Dubai and sadly our experience was cancelled as it was too windy! Obviously... More

It is a very nice experience to be able to see the sunrise up in the desert area of Dubai. The feel of the wind on my face while the balloon is moving over the sand dunes and power lines is exhilarating. The pilot is very professional and we feel very safe.

It's a good activity to do in Dubai but expensive. You'll be treated with wonderful view of the desert and sunrise. You will have to wake up early though because the ride is started before the sunrise. Nice view of the desert and animals.
