Imagine floating in the skies one kilometer above the Dubai desert sands on a Hot Air Balloon Ride with soaring Peregrine falcons – the world’s fasted animal. Welcome to Balloon Adventures Dubai, the world’s most experienced Hot Air Balloon Company. We have teamed up with the best falcon trainers in the business, to create a breath-taking world–first spectacle!
For the first time in history, you can enjoy flying with the falcons while gently floating over the pristine dunes and watching the sunrise over the Hajar Mountains. On your airborne adventure also see roaming camels, galloping gazelles and the mighty Arabian Oryx in their natural habitat. It is a breathtaking experience and no wonder that it rates so highly on the bucket lists of so many people!
Once you land, enjoy a ride in an historic open top 1950’s Land Rovers to a private desert conservation reserve to an authentic Bedouin camp where you will have the chance to freshen up at clean, private bathrooms. Feast on a gourmet breakfast of caviar, smoked salmon, Eggs Benedict, fresh fruit and more.
It is the perfect thing to do in Dubai to experience the desert from above and below.
