Fly a balloon over the desert

Do you dream about flying a balloon? You can combine such a flight and finding out about Arabian Desert, because you cannot completely feel the entire beauty and power of vast sand dunes by taking a usual trip. Your most successful option would be to fly above the desert and getting to know it directly then.

Ascending above this seemingly lifeless expanse, you will be able to see the start of a new day, when the desert wakes up and comes to life with the first rays of the rising sun. At that moment, you will become amazed to the rich palette of its colors.

This ride will give you incredible feelings and realization that even piles of sand have their romance, their life, and endless freedom.

Prices: you can order a balloon flight as part of your tour at any hotel. Prices vary from USD 200 to USD 350. Some companies grant discounts for children under 12. Unfortunately, children under 5 are not allowed to fly a balloon.
