Dubai Hot Air Balloon : Romantic Desert, Silent Sunrises, and Exclusive Views of the Country's Premier National Ecological Reserve

From USD $259.00
  • Duration: 4 Hours (approx.)
  • Product code: DFAballoon

The most absurdly romantic thing you can ever do in Dubai!

So close, yet so far from the glitz and glamour of the city. Enjoy a magic carpet ride over an endless ocean of sand dunes, emerald green oases, herds of Arabian Oryx, gazelles, and wandering camels. Witness a breathtaking sunrise with the backdrop of the majestic Hajjar Mountains, and be welcomed by the warmth of the desert people we chance to meet on landing. 

A promise of a great adventure!

Early Birds

When was the last time you saw the sunrise? Getting up early to see the untouched nature and wildlife in the light of the rising sun is a sight to behold; It is the best time to witness the breathtaking views and incredible desertscapes of Dubai.

It's worth it!
