Cappadocia has unreal amazing landscape which makes Balloon flights one of worlds the top 3. The spectacular surrealistic landscapes combined with excellent flying conditions allow the balloons to gently drift over and between fairy chimneys, pigeon houses hewn into the unique rock formations, orchards and vineyards through impressive valleys, each with distinctive rock formations, colors and features and then float up over rippled ravines for breathtaking views over the region.

Sunset comes early so it sucks to wake up and go but the ride was worth it. Recep Yandi was an amazing pilot, starting with a great view from above descending to basically touching the formations and doing a very smooth landing.

As far as I know, balloon rides are only cancelled due to high winds. You should be fine this summer.
