Hot Air Balloon Flight

Cappadocia, Turkey

Up, up and away. Take flight above the otherworldly terrain of Cappadocia, a region in central Turkey known for its “fairy chimneys,” minaret-like rock formations shaped millions of years ago by volcanic activity and erosion. An early-morning balloon ride over this striking expanse has found its way onto the bucket list of many adventure travelers -- the world becomes strangely calm and quiet while floating 100 feet above this impressive landscape. Plus, if you look closely, you might spot one of the fairies in his rocky home below.
