Before the sun rises we will pick you up from your hotel to travel to the take-off point in the desert – not more than a 45-minute drive from the city. As you arrive, the ground crew will be preparing the balloon envelopes and baskets. After a quick safety briefing, you will gather around your basket while your Pilot begins the thrilling process of inflation. You will climb into the basket and before you know it, you will begin to peacefully float off the ground and ascend into the sky.
As you float up in the sky, the hues along the horizon begin to transform into beautiful shades of yellows and oranges. Depending on which direction you are facing, you will see the Arabian sun rising behind the Hajar mountains over the desert dunes. 4,000ft in the sky is one of the best places in the world to witness the beauty of the sunrise. Look out for Arabian oryx, gazelles or wandering camels in the sand dunes below. Every balloon flight is approximately 1 hour long.
The balloons land somewhere different in the desert every day depending on the wind. Everyone will attach the clips of their belts to the basket and embrace the landing position a few minutes before the balloon touches the ground. After landing, the Pilot will let you know when it’s the right time to climb out the basket. Watch as the other balloons land and how the ground crew professionally roll up the balloon envelope.
