Dubai: Hot Air Balloon Ride with Camel Ride & Falcon Photo
- Pickup available
- Duration: 4 hours
You probably know that Dubai, one of the world’s most luxurious and futuristic destinations, is often described as the fastest-growing city on the globe. However, you may not be aware that outside of urban landscapes, Dubai has yet more to offer. Take a break from the city with a hot air balloon tour of Dubai. Enjoy the spectacular experience of drifting over the desert. Watch a falconry show. Indulge in a gourmet breakfast. Take a safari through a desert reserve.
Welcome onboard and enjoy the ride! Float over the Arabian desert at 4,000 feet in a hot air balloon. Take a deep breath and experience a unique balloon flight.
Catch a glimpse of a great variety of scenery and wildlife, including oases, gazelles, camels, and the Arabian oryx. Glide over the Dubai desert and catch the sunrise. The possibilities are endless, and you’ll get to witness for yourself the vast expanse of sand dunes stretching out below.
An experienced pilot will safely guide you through the desert with the aid of the wind. There’s no telling where exactly you’ll end up around these areas, so relax and enjoy the adventure!
You may be carried to a nearby reserve—the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve—where you'll have the opportunity to see more wildlife.
The instructors speak English, so you don't have to worry about communication barriers. They're also usually locals, so you can confidently ask for advice or tips about Dubai.And here’s an added bonus! Some tours include breakfast or brunch, so you won't need to bring snacks.
Sometimes you’ll have the option to take home a personal souvenir from the flight: a certificate to confirm you made the flight! But don’t worry, your guide will keep you safe and sound for the duration of the trip. And they will be happy to answer any questions you have, in case you’re feeling anxious.
Most tours are six hours total, with a start time of 4:30 a.m.—plenty of time to catch the sunrise! The hot air balloon Dubai flight itself lasts for one hour.
There are other options for balloon tours in the Dubai area, including tours with city views through Gray Line Emirates.

Despite corona and Ramadan everything went smoothly - from booking to the end. Especially, for the first time it is a must see, flying over the desert with beautiful view of the sunrise. Pickup on time in air conditioning bus. Also the drop on the way back went good. Balkon Ride as expected last for one hour. Afterwards nice ride with a safari jeep to the camp. Camp made delicious buffet, with opportunities to take Picture with falcons and riding camels. However the time at the camp were too short: only one hour. All in all nice experience especially for the first time. Thus 5 stars
Absolutely fantastic experience!! I would recommend this activity to everyone. The whole morning was well organised and fun. The staff were knowledgeable and well drilled, and the balloon ride was a real highlight in Dubai, the most gorgeous sunrise followed by sightings of a falcon, camels and gazelles. This was follows by a lovely breakfast at a cool site in the desert with wifi and a modern twist. I really enjoyed the whole thing and will recommend it to friends and family wholeheartedly.
