What better way to explore the whole Cappadocian region than being on top of the world on a Hot-Air Balloon.

One of the best experience.

Fee ranges from 120 to 200 Euro depends on the duration of the flight (1 to 1 & half hours), and the balloon company I guess.

We were picked up from our hotel in Goreme at 7AM when they're supposed to come at 6:30AM.

There was a small breakfast while the balloon staff starts to blew air on the balloon with a huge fan and of course fire.

The flight up is very exciting, though it was really cold in winter. The view is spectacular.

However, the basket is small for around 16 or 18 of us inside it and we found it hard to move
to take photos or videos.

Nevertheless, it was truly fun, worth it. There was a bubbly champagne toast after the flight and you'll get your unique hot-air balloon flight certificate.

A bit of splurge but we may not be able to do it again.

You can book this flight through your hotel, most hotels in Goreme offer different tours including the balloon rides. Or checkout several agencies around the small town.
