Itinerary

Duration of the flight is minimum one hour and then some… and our pilots do their utmost to make it one of the most memorable hours of your life. From your pick-up at the hotel through to drop-off, time equals approximately three hours; depending on your hotel's location and the time of year, you will usually be back before 9am and will comfortably be able to join a daily excursion.

We always take-off from different sites according to wind conditions of the day to offer the best possible route because our aim is show you more valleys possible . We also keep rotating the balloons during the flight to show our guests different angles of the route (which is changing up to the weather conditions)

Numbers of people in the basket ranges from 12 to 16 depending on the balloon size. Even in our largest balloon there will not be more than 4 in a compartment. We respect our guests’ personal space and believe in leg-room for greatest comfort.

Transfers with A/C minibuses are included to the flight price. We will pick you up around half an hour before sunrise at your hotel and return you after the flight.

Insurance covers both the flight and ground handling and is included. Our passengers, pilots and third parties are covered by our policy for up to 40 Million Euro

Breakfast is served at our office before take-off. You can have filter coffee or tea with a selection of pastries and fruit.

Champagne (chilled) is the most important detail of completing a balloon flight for pilots and ours take it more seriously than any other pilot we know. So we serve the best champagne after each flight with a selection of cakes at landing party .Champagne is actually a ballooning tradition; since the Montgolfier brothers made the first flight in 1873 and celebrated a successful landing with champagne. During winter, we also serve mulled wine as the ambient temperature is usually below zero!

Certificates are given as commemorative gifts. 

Children between 6 and 12 years old can fly with their parents and will get 50% discount . Unfortunately we can not accept younger children as they can get a little bored and uncomfortable due to having to stand for an hour plus in the same place.

Overview

We don't call our  Butterfly Flight as standard  as it offers way more than a flight .
We will collect you from your hotel around sunrise (it really is the best time of the day)  and take you to our office in Goreme. You will be offered a light breakfast while our pilots check the weather conditions and decide on the best launch site for the preferred flight path. Once at the launch site there will be a full safety briefing and you will have first hand experience of the balloon inflation. The crew will help you into the basket and when everyone is happy and comfortable, the moment you have dreamt of...up, up and away! Below you, a unique landscape, a combination of natural beauty and a deep and complex history.  At the end of a fantastic  flight we will celebrate the flght with champagne. Before we return to your hotel, passengers each receive a personalised commemorative flight certificate and our sincere thanks for sharing the best part of our day.

Unforgettable Experience!

Butterfly balloons is an excellent company! From pick-up and breakfast until the up-in-the-air experience and the champagne celebration; everything was so perfect. However, our pilot, Fatih Doganay, stole the show not only for his ‘driving skills’, but also for his kindness and positive energy throughout...More

Hi, You should book the tickets only after you reach Istanbul as the flights might get cancelled due to strong winds. Ask them about online booking at that time.

Hi Jessica, We had the "textbook landing" which mean we landed directly onto the trailer - that takes a lot of skill! As a result, there was no way it could be bumpy at all, otherwise we would have fallen off the... More
