FAQ – Hot Air Balloon Ride Dubai

How much is the hot air balloon ride in Dubai?

The cost of a hot air balloon ride in Dubai ranges from 260 € to 350 € depending on the option you decide to book. You can select a hot air balloon ride without any add-ons, or you can book an option that includes a gourmet breakfast or a hot air balloon ride with a falcon show. 

How long is the hot air balloon ride in Dubai?

Hot air balloon rides in Dubai usually last between 2 to 3 hours, depending on the weather conditions. You should also keep in mind that hotel pickups and drop-offs take about an hour. 

What do you wear on a hot air balloon ride in Dubai?

It is recommended to wear whatever you feel comfortable in when going on a balloon adventure in Dubai. However, we highly recommend wearing a jacket or something similar if you plan to go during the winter months because it can be quite cold in the desert before the sun rises. Also, keep in mind that you will need to climb in and out of the balloon basket, so wearing a skirt or dress might not be a good decision.

What are other must-do tours while in Dubai?

If you would like to experience more similar adventures like a hot air balloon ride while in Dubai, we highly recommend booking a dune bashing experience across the huge sand dunes in a 4x4 land rover or an adrenaline-ridden quad bike ride which you can share with a friend. Also, don't miss out on an unforgettable camel ride and sandboarding adventure across the majestic Lahbab desert.  For those who are fans of water activities, we highly recommend spending an entire day filled with excitement at the Aquaventure or Wild Wadi waterpark - the two largest water parks in the UAE.

Hot Air Balloon Ride Dubai – Valuable Tips

Prepare yourself to get up early.

Keep in mind that Dubai hot air balloon adventure rides usually start very early in the morning due to the impact of rising hot air on the balloon’s altitude. But even if you are not a morning person, it is well worth sacrificing a few hours of sleep to enjoy the tranquil desert landscape from such a unique perspective.

Pack light

Bring only your essentials when going on a hot air balloon ride, such as your wallet, a hat, and your camera for sure!

Dress up in layers & bring comfortable shoes.

Mornings in the Dubai desert tend to be colder, but temperatures rise as the sun ascends. That’s why we suggest wearing a lightweight jacket that you can easily remove if it gets too hot. Also, wearing a comfortable pair of shoes is important since you will be standing in a balloon for quite a lot.

A highlight of our Dubai trip!

Our entire tour was incredible from the beginning to the end. It was so amazing to fly among the clouds and observe the vast Dubai desert and its magnificent sand dunes from such a unique perspective! Our balloon pilot was brilliant! She took some amazing photos of us during our ride and air dropped them to us later. I 100% recommend this hot air balloon flight!


Definitely worth your time & money!

Very well-organized tour! The pickup from our hotel was on time, and the staff provided us with coffee and water while they were preparing our balloon. We booked a hot air balloon flight with a falcon show and buffet breakfast, and it was fantastic! Highly recommend doing the same. Even though waking up so early in the morning for this tour may be hard, it is definitely worth it!
