Full description

Marvel at views of the Arabian Desert from above with a thrilling hot air balloon flight tour from Dubai. Transfer from your hotel to the landing site and catch the sunrise over the sand. Meet a Peregrine falcon and enjoy a gourmet breakfast. 

Begin your balloon adventure with an early morning pick-up at your hotel. Then, head out before sunrise to the desert to the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve to begin the adventure. 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. Keep an eye out for the mighty Arabian oryx in their natural habitat. Once you have landed, drive to a private desert conservation reserve and freshen up in the clean, private bathrooms. Get the opportunity to take a photo with a Peregrine falcon and enjoy a scrumptious breakfast of delicacies such as hand-cut smoked salmon, a fruit platter, and more.  After the end of this magical ride you’ll be transferred back to the city and dropped off at your hotel.

The whole family had such an extraordinary experience. From the driver to the pilot to the hosts at the camp, everyone was welcoming and made sure that we are comfortable and had fun. There was a drone show, of course the balloon ride for an hour, a trip to a camp , a delicious open buffet breakfast, camel ride and falcon encounter. It was an amazing trip for all ages from 9 to 45. Worth every penny. I would highly recommend and would go again.

The absolute highlight of our Dubai trip. Captain Hylke was great and had us flying up there with ease. I was celebrating my 30th birthday and it was so special having everyone sing happy birthday. Driving in the old land rovers to breakfast was great and the food delicious. Thank you Captain Hylke!!

The tour overall was good. We got to see some animals in the wildlife reserve and the guides were very knowledgeable. The view you got was very much dependant on what side of the balloon you were in and they only turned it round for a very short amount of time, meaning they got about 40 mins of the sunset view and we got less than 5. The breakfast and camp was pretty good. The transportation there and back was pretty bumpy
