Hot air ballooning in Turkish Cappadocia gives tourists an incomparable experience.

This region of Turkey has a unique natural landscape. Cappadocia is, first of all, the valley of Peribajalara (“Magic Fireplaces” or “Fairy Fireplaces”) and remnants in the form of stone pillars of bizarre shapes and outlines.

There were previously active volcanoes on the territory of Cappadocia, the largest of which – Hasan, Erciyes, Medendiz and Gulludag – once threw out ash and lava. Over time, the ash turned into tuff, and the lava into basalt, covering the soft tuff rock with a thin layer. Climate change in the region triggered the work of other natural forces: precipitation, wind and rivers carved their patterns from tufa.

During the tour, tourists get the opportunity to see the natural beauties of the region from a bird’s eye view: the Peribajalara valley and houses and monasteries carved into the rocks.

About 2.5 million local and foreign tourists visit Cappadocia every year, many of whom fly in hot air balloons.

Flights are operated on average 300 days a year. In recent years, these flights have become the main attraction for tourists to Cappadocia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
