Cappadocia Voyager Balloons is a
hot air ballooning company in Cappadocia,
Turkey that specializes in “boutique” flights, not the huge 40-passenger bus-in-the-sky baskets of some other companies.
Free Upgrade for TTP Travelers
Also, it offers a free upgrade to TTP travelers, and Voyager only accepts reservations for the first flight of the day (that is, the best one). Read on...
Voyager Balloons has prepared a 4.5-minute video of the Voyager Balloon experience. It really lets you know what it's like to fly in a hot-air balloon over Cappadocia. After watching the video, return to this page to make your reservation so that you receive the free upgrade. Click here to watch the video.
"Our aim is to provide the most unique and satisfying hot-air balloon flight experience over Cappadocia," says Mr M. Halis Aydoğan, the owner of the company who is also Voyager's multi-lingual, highly experienced balloon pilot, along with Mr Hakan Yıldız.

Ultra Comfort Flights
"Operated in our medium-sized 20-passenger balloon, we take no more than 16 passengers on this flight so that passengers can enjoy more personal space and freedom to move around for photographs, videos, and the view," Mr Aydoğan says. A licensed tour guide, he is one of the most experienced hot-air balloon pilots in Cappadocia, having learned ballooning from Lars-Erik Möre and Kaili Kidner, the originators of hot-air ballooning here. Mr Hakan Yıldız, also very experienced, is the other Ultra Comfort Flight pilot.
"Our advantage is that both Hakan and I speak fluent English and we know Cappadocia intimately. This is exceptionally important because a balloon flight here is not just time in the sky. It's the best opportunity to learn about Cappadocia, its landscape, culture, history, traditions, agriculture—anything you see from the sky. Many pilots do not have the personality, knowledge or language skills to make a flight the enriching experience it should be, giving the passengers the best value for their money."
The Ultra Comfort Flight lasts from 75 to 90 minutes, which is longer than many other companies' flights," Mr Aydoğan says.
Voyager Balloons is the only company in Cappadocia to offer ultra-deluxe flights: in a special basket built for wide visibility, four comfortable aircraft-style seats provide a theater view of the panorama. Snacks and drinks are served from a hamper to small individual swing-out tables:
