Flying on a magical hot air balloon

For those afraid of heights, anything pertaining to the skies would naturally put you off. But, surprisingly, such will not be the case with hot air balloons. There is something about the oldest human-carrying flight technology that is fascinating and charming to first-timers and regulars alike.

In Dubai, the miles and miles of sprawling deserts provide the perfect setting for almost an hour ride in the skies on this old school contraption. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city life, gently flying over the breathtaking sand dunes provides a truly singular experience that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Imagine as if you are taking an enchanting magic carpet ride over the undulating waves of the desert, seeing occasional signs of life courtesy of a random oasis, of oryxes and gazelles prancing about, and of camels wandering confidently across the sand like the desert masters that they are. Then picture the sun casting its glorious yellow-orange early morning glow as it gently rises up from the horizon, breathing more life into the already exquisite vision before your eyes. You'd wish you can freeze the moment in time.

After minutes of journeying the skies, your hot air balloon lands and you are greeted by the warmth of the desert people welcoming you back to terra firma.

Balloon Adventures offers this spectacular experience in Dubai. You can charter an entire flight, and celebrate your most precious moments on a hot air balloon with your friends and loved ones. Companies, too, can treat their valued employees on this magical ride over the desert. For more information, visit
