Warmer air rises in cooler air. If you actually need to get somewhere, a hot air balloon is a fairly impractical vehicle.You can't really steer it, and it only travels as fast as the wind blows. But if you simply want to enjoy the experience of flying, there's nothing quite like it. Many people describe flying in a hot air balloon as one of the most serene, enjoyable activities they've ever experienced.
We have different size of balloons which has different capacity. The biggest capacity is for 28 pople which is the biggest basket and we have different sizes like; 24 people, 20 people, 16 people, 12 people and 8 people baskets.
Winds, fluffy, white clouds and pigeons over the spectacular volcanic landscape of Cappadocia. These three key impressions from my childhood explain why I learned to fly balloons and go on to establish my first ballooning company in 1998.
The people of Cappadocia have become familiar with tourism over the last three decades. I started introducing the region to tourists in 1996 as a licensed tour guide. I have always enjoyed showing new comers the hidden corners of the glorious valleys and fascinating volcanic formations of the region, leaving them breathless and surprised.
Teyfik Olmez and I, both Cappadocians, decided to try our hand and establish our own ballooning company in 2008. I have now been in the ballooning business for 15 years, have been flying balloons for 10 years and training our pilots at Voyager balloons in order to share my dreams of flying over Cappadocia with you. At Voyager Balloons the experienced ground crew and pilots work in harmony to provide you a safe and comfortable flight and an experience you will never forget: from your hotel pick-up, to the breakfast, the flight over the colorful valleys of this unique region, to the champagne celebration after landing. Our team includes members who speak fluent English, Portuguese and Japanese to serve you.
Every flight over Cappadocia offers a wonderful scenic adventure and Voyager Balloons has one of the best safety records, having flown more than 80,000 people over Cappadocia over the last ten years. Our nine luxury aircraft are the newest, safest and most comfortable balloons available. While our safety standards and insurance coverage exceed Turkish, European and American regulations. A hot-air balloon flight is not like any other air-flight experience. Within moments from lift-off you feel hypnotized as you effortlessly drift over tree-tops and the spectacular Cappadocian landscape. Floating up to heights of up to 2000 feet, closer to the fluffy, white clouds, all you feel is peace and tranquility as the Earth slowly descends and rotates below you.
The deep, eroded canyons and lush, fertile valleys of Cappadocia is an ideal setting for a unique and unforgettable flight as the gentle breezes push us to places that could never be reached except by air. If the timing is right, we can even pick apricots as we float over the fruit trees.
Voyager Balloons is rated number 1 on various travel forums and recommended by many guide books, including The Lonely Planet. We look forward to meeting new friends and to be able to show you the breath-taking landscape of Cappadocia from the aerial view.

Last August, for my daughter's birthday, we journeyed into the wild blue yonder with Cappadocia Voyager Balloons.
The memories of our experience will last a lifetime; it wildly exceeded my expectations. The combination of the unusual rock formations of the region, and the serenity of the hot air balloon ride, proved to be one of my most unique and exciting adventures. The company was incredibly professional and efficient; every aspect went smoothly and was perfectly timed. Our pilot Halis's humor quickly calmed my daughter's qualms of riding in a balloon, and entertained us the entire flight. Halis was also informative; he explained the workings of the balloon, the origin of the landscape, and never failed to answer all of our other questions.
A skilled and adept pilot, he nimbly maneuvered the balloon extremely close to the rock formations, almost within an arm's reach. The photo ops were spectacular, my hand tightly gripped my camera the entire ride. Upon the landing of the balloon, the crew even threw a small celebration with champagne (and grape juice for my daughter).
Every passenger even received their own commemorative certificate. Unfortunately, we accidently left our certificates in the company vehicle when we were dropped off at our hotel. But later that day, a Cappadocia Voyager Balloons employee returned to our hotel just to deliver the certificates to us.
I was truly amazed by the level of service!! I cannot state how highly I recommend this company and the deluxe program they offer for a superior journey that you will never forget.
