Desert Balloon Expeditions

Providing a rather unique concept for this part of the world, Balloon Adventures Emirates is now offering hot air balloon expeditions into the heart of the emirate’s pure desert. Its service will operate from the end of September to the end of May, with these self-referenced ‘magic carpet ride’ expeditions presenting passengers with a distinctive view of a landscape surrounded by mammoth red sand dunes, the emerald green oases of Al Ain, the emirate’s second city and heritage capital, and the chance to spot Arabian gazelles and wandering camels in their natural habitat. Beginning early in the morning – around 5.30am to capitalise on the cool and serene ambience, this is one adventure you just don’t want to miss.
