Why fly with us?

More Than a Hot Air Balloon Ride

Although hot air ballooning is a truly impressive experience, we decided to take it to the next level. We like to think we give you the complete ‘wow’ experience (and don’t just claim to!). After your amazing hot air balloon flight, ride in 1950’s vintage Land Rovers to an authentic Bedouin camp nestled in a Royal desert retreat. Enjoy a delicious gourmet breakfast complete with caviar, smoked salmon and eggs benedict in a magical setting in the desert before returning to Dubai with your appetite for adventure (and breakfast) fully satisfied!

Ballooning is safe

World-Class Safety Measures

As the pioneers of hot air ballooning in Dubai in 2005, with some of the most experienced pilots in the world, we are the experts in creating the best ballooning adventures! Our pilots are highly trained and understand the local weather conditions ensuring the best and safest flights in Dubai. As the longest operating Hot Air Balloon company in Dubai, and after 15 years and thousands of flights, we are still setting the standards for everyone to follow. There are some things in life that you don’t want to go cheap on doctors, dentists and pilots!


Balloon Adventures Dubai strives to provide guests with unforgettable hot air balloon flights and sustainable air and desert adventures. Conservation of the environment drives everything we do. However, it can be challenging as hot air balloons inevitably produce carbon emissions. Luckily, we can take certain measures to minimize our impact.

By using propane as fuel, we can keep it as clean and efficient as possible. When landing these magic carpets, our experienced pilots avoid protected areas whenever possible to protect the stunning desert landscape. The ideal landing area is open and flat, with little vegetation or plant life. At the end of the flight, the wind is the final decider on where we land and the only thing the pilots can’t control. When planning flights, our world-experienced pilots consider the weather conditions to determine where the balloons will take off, essentially determining where the balloons will land. This strategy has ensured that an average of only 4% of all of our flights ended up landing in protected areas. When this happens, all measures are taken to land the balloons in the safest way, not only for guests but also for the pristine surroundings and desert life.

Lastly, we teamed up with Dubai’s only eco-luxury desert safari company, Platinum Heritage. We then drive guests to sustainable and traditional Bedouin camps for breakfast, using restored vintage Land Rovers.

When it comes to being mindful of the environment, you can rest (and fly) assured and know your ecological footprint is light as air when exploring with Balloon Adventures Dubai.
