Enjoy a magical ride over giant sand dunes and vivid green oases
Experience the Arabian desert in an exciting and unique way
Receive a flight certificate from the balloon’s pilot
You’ll float above the Arabian desert for about an hour in the rising morning sun. In addition to seeing giant red sand dunes you’ll be on the lookout for camels, wild gazelles, vivid green oases, date farms, and the ever-changing shadows on the desert landscape.
After the descent, when you’re back on solid ground, you’ll be served cold refreshments, including juices, soft drinks, and water – and be presented with your flight certificate by the balloon's pilot.
On occasion there’s an opportunity to meet camel farmers, falconers, and other local folks who live in the area.
After the end of this magical ride you’ll be transferred back to the city and dropped off at your hotel.

“A great experience”
Reviewed by Harald from Graz, Austria on May 26th, 2012 Everything came together well. The video that you can buy on the trip can be passed by. It's a shame we wasted the money--150 dirham for 1.42 minutes. Nope…
“amazing balloon flight with sunrise in desert”
Reviewed by Simona from Zürich, Switzerland on December 25th, 2011 unique experience, very different view

“An adventure with Attila!”
Reviewed by Juergen from Mannheim, Germany on November 30th, 2011 Early start, a 1 hour car journey then the amazing experience: silent gliding over the desert. Only occasionally was the silence disturbed by the droning burner (take some sort of head covering with you, the burner is really hot!). Catain Attila from Hungary loved his job, and we enjoyed the journey.
“Im Prinzip eine gute Tour. Unsere Tour war zum Sonnenaufgang zu spät.”
Reviewed by Klaus from Asbach, Germany on January 29th, 2013 Leider war unsrer Tour zu spät zum Sonnenaufgang. Die Fahrt über die "Wüste" hatten wir uns spektakulärer vorgestellt - flache Sandflächen, kaum Dünen und ein paar landwirtschaftlich genutzte "Oasen".
Pilot war gut - für Windrichtung und Windgeschwindigkeit kann er ja nichts.
Reviewed by Christof from Burgdorf, Switzerland on November 30th, 2012 Hatten eine wunderbaren Morgen mit Sonnenaufgang. Wenig Wind.
Pilot und Crew auf der Höhe ihrer Aufgaben.
“Tolles Erlebnis, sehr gut organisiert...”
