The excitement starts before sunrise – we promise that the early wakeup will be well worth it! Our driver will collect you in a stylish Land Rover Defender to whisk you off to the balloon take-off site in the desert. The journey is approximately a 45-minute leisurely drive from Dubai.
Arrive at the take-off site in the desert to be welcomed by your personal balloon pilot. After a quick safety briefing, the pilot will begin the exciting balloon inflation process. Before you know it, you will be climbing into the balloon basket and waving to the ground crew as your balloon gently starts to float and head up towards the skies.
You will be floating on cloud nine (quite literally) as you glide over the Dubai desert at 4,000ft. Look out for wandering camels and Arabian oryx below, and take in the stunning views of the sunrise over the rolling sand dunes and the Hajar mountains.
One of the best things about this private experience is that the entire experience is your own. This means that you get clear 360-degree panoramic views from the basket and share the intimate experience with your loved ones.
After landing in the desert, your private Land Rover Defender will collect you for the next part of the experience. An adventure like hot air ballooning wouldn’t be complete without a hearty breakfast – besides, you’ll need a bit of quality time to reflect about your amazing ride before heading back to the city.
