A balloon expedition set deep in the heart of the desert is a must do activity for any true adventure lover. Much like a magic carpet ride, the only thing to be expected is the unexpected.
Floating 3,000 feet over the sands in a hot air balloon is one of the best ways to see and study the many aspects of the local landscape – shimmering golden dunes, emerald green oases, immense blue desert skies, rare flora and fauna, and the occasional camel or two.
The embarkation point north of Al Ain is a scenic drive from Abu Dhabi. The duration of the flight is approximately an hour and that of the tour between four and five hours, subject to weather conditions.
