Many travellers’ bucket lists include hot air ballooning, and it’s easy to see why! For a variety of reasons, Dubai is one of the best destinations in the world to take a Hot Air Balloon ride.
At 3000-4,000 feet, seeing the expanse of the Dubai desert is truly amazing. A Hot Air Balloon sails with the wind, and from where Balloon Adventures Dubai takes off, you can see immaculate undulating sand dunes in all directions as you fly over the vast Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Other desert views are equally stunning, with crops, communities, and camel farms strewn over the landscape.
The sunrise over the desert is spectacular, reflecting a rainbow of colours across the sand dunes. As the sun rises, the colours change to gentle reds, then to vivid yellows as the sun rises higher. The Hajar Mountains on Oman’s border frame the area wonderfully, providing a magnificent backdrop and ideal photo opportunities.
You may see Arabian creatures including camels, the Arabian oryx, and gazelles while you ride in a hot air balloon for about an hour. The Arabian oryx was on the verge of extinction, but because to conservation efforts and specialised breeding techniques, they are now thriving in their natural habitat.
The only place in the world where you can fly with falcons is Dubai. This magnificent spectacle is exclusively available from Balloon Adventures Dubai, the only Hot Air Balloon Company in Dubai. Falconry is deeply established in the UAE’s cultural tradition and seeing these majestic creatures flying around the balloon basket in full flight is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. You float across the desert at the same time, which is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
A Hot Air Balloon Ride over the Dubai Desert provides some of the most stunning photographic opportunities. Influencers, celebrities, and the international press are all hoping to get the ideal photo from the balloon. It’s difficult not to snap nice images from a Hot Air Balloon – even photos taken with cell phones are transformed into works of art. Following the Hot Air Balloon flight, you will be treated to a delectable breakfast of smoked salmon, eggs Benedict, and other delicacies at a typical Bedouin camp in the middle of the desert. A Hot Air Balloon ride in Dubai is a wonderful and unique experience.
