Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly high like a bird?

We have flown high across the Arabian Desert at a remarkable 4,000 feet above in a hot air balloon Dubai. This was the most tranquil moment of our lives and one that we will forever be grateful for!

If you are looking for a special and memorable moment in Dubai, this activity is the perfect experience for you!

Our Hot Air Balloon Dubai Experience

We were invited to @ballooning_uae to try out this for ourselves and what an incredible experience it was. From being picked up from a local hotel by their own transport and getting off the hot air balloon Dubai spot for some breakfast in the desert, we were blown away with the organisation and delivery of the whole trip.

A few highlights to our trip were:

  • The open-top vintage Land Rover
  • Tour guide giving us a run-down of local history and traditions
  • Flying 4,000ft above the Arabian Desert
  • Landing of Hot Air Balloon

We started our day early in the morning; the Balloon Adventure team picked up from a local hotel by their own transport and getting off the hot air balloon Dubai spot.

After we reached there; the crew was busy preparing the balloon envelopes and baskets. Once everything was ready, we were given a safety briefing before our flight and gathered around the basket.

The Pilot helped us climb into the basket, and soon after that, we started our incredible experience of floating in the sky.

As we rise in the sky, the colours along the horizon transformed into stunning shades of yellows or orange. We have never witnessed a spectacular sunrise like before with a sight of Arabian oryx and camels from the sky.

The view from the hot air balloon is just incredible it is worth every penny you spend for it.

After one hour flight in a hot air balloon, it was time for landing. Believe us, the landing of the hot air balloon was one of the most exciting moments for us as we have seen the landing of helicopters and aeroplanes before but have never seen the landing of the hot air balloon.

Before landing, we were informed by our Pilot well in advance to buckle up a few minutes before the hot air balloon touched the ground.

Once we landed, they took us to our next adventure, where we got into vintage Land Rover and reached a Heritage camp at a Royal desert retreat.
