With the world’s only falconry from the sky performance and riding in vintage Land Rovers through the desert, we give you the complete ‘wow’ experience (and don’t just claim to!).

TAKE-OFF

Before the sun rises we will pick you up from your hotel to travel to the take-off point in the desert – not more than a 45-minute drive from the city. As you arrive, the ground crew will be preparing the balloon envelopes and baskets. After a quick safety briefing, you will gather around your basket while your Pilot begins the thrilling process of inflation. You will climb into the basket and before you know it, you will begin to peacefully float off the ground and ascend into the sky.

Highlight: Watch the inflation of the balloon

SUNRISE HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE

As you float up in the sky, the hues along the horizon begin to transform into beautiful shades of yellows and oranges. Depending on which direction you are facing, you will see the Arabian sun rising behind the Hajar mountains over the desert dunes. 4,000ft in the sky is one of the best places in the world to witness the beauty of the sunrise. Look out for Arabian oryx, gazelles or wandering camels in the sand dunes below. Every balloon flight is approximately 1 hour long.

Highlight: Experience the sunrise at 4,000ft

IN-FLIGHT FALCON SHOW

A falconer goes up with every balloon flight. At the optimal time, the falcon will be released from the hot air balloon to demonstrate their speed and agility by swooping below, above and around the hot air balloons. This is the only place in the world where you will get to experience this one-of-a-kind falcon show from the sky!

Highlight: Witness the world’s only falconry from the sky

 LANDING IN THE DESERT

The balloons land somewhere different in the desert everyday depending on the wind. Everyone will attach the clips of their belts to the basket and embrace the landing position a few minutes before the balloon touches the ground. After landing, the Pilot will let you know when it’s the right time to climb out the basket. Watch as the other balloons land and how the ground crew professionally roll up the balloon envelope. Also get a chance to hold and get photographs with the falcon you shared the skies and basket with.

Highlight: Land in the Dubai desert and get photos with the falcon

RIDE IN VINTAGE LAND ROVERS

The adventure doesn’t end there! After your once-in-a-lifetime experience of the desert from up above, get ready to travel through the dunes in vintage Land Rovers to an authentic Heritage camp in a Royal desert retreat. These 1950’s Land Rovers were the first motorised vehicles introduced to the desert and have been resorted to their former glory.

Highlight: Traverse the desert in vintage Land Rovers

BREAKFAST IN A HERITAGE CAMP

New adventures always work up an appetite! Arrive at an authentic Heritage camp to enjoy a 5-star breakfast in the heart of the desert. Relax in this beautiful setting and enjoy a delicious spread of eggs Benedict, shakshuka, salmon, caviar, halloumi cheese, fresh fruit, cold cut platters and more. Before heading back to the city, explore the authentic camp built out of natural materials like stone, wood and goat hair or sit back and relax in the traditional majlis. When you are ready your driver will take you back to the city.

Highlight: Enjoy a delicious breakfast and relax in traditional majlis in the Dubai desert
