Air Tours in Turkey
Turkey is a fusion of both the Eastern and Western worlds, giving all its visitors a little taste of what the planet has to offer. Along with its stunning landscapes, Turkey has a vibrant culture and a far-reaching history shaped by the Ottoman Empire. One of the best ways to take it all in is from the air – in the basket of a hot air balloon ride with a balloon pilot and tour guide. Hot air balloon tours in Turkey are for the romantics at heart.
You might have seen the iconic photography of balloons drifting over Cappadocia, one of Turkey’s most prized tourist destinations. There’s a reason why this experience is always in the forefront: it never fails to exceed expectations. Cappadocia is a fantasy-like region of the country where dwellings have been carved into ancient pillars of rock. From a guided balloon ride, you’ll go sightseeing over the fairy chimneys of these dwellings. Your guide may even arrange for you to dine with a local family inside their rock home.
From Cappadocia, it’s a quick hop to Ürgüp, a region made famous for its wines and breathtaking views. You can also see the beautiful Devrent Valley, and Paşa Bağları. Did you know the area is home to Avanos city, a Derinkuyu underground town? Your experienced air tour guide will be able to point you in the right direction for all these attractions and more.
Double up your time with your guided air tour and explore the Antalya city area as much as possible. If you’re looking for more culture, your guide may invite you to take part in some local crafts making to learn about traditional Erbu art and pottery. Although Antalya has a much smaller population than elsewhere in Turkey, you’ll find this vibrant coastal metropolis the perfect place to spend some time after a air tour in Cappadocia.Sign up for a no-cost no-spam traveler account to see hidden VIP trip prices, earn some social conscience karma points, and get in on some awesome prizes too!
