A hot air balloon flight is a bucket list experience for most of us, but a hot air balloon flight across the Arabian Desert is an experience beyond even that. Traversing the desert plain encased in your hot air balloon, you can appreciate the dreamlike desert landscape in a whole new way.

Sky-born, this adventure steps up once more as the falconry display commences, with the magnificent falcon swooping to new heights through the desert. When you land, your vintage land rover awaits, ready to whisk you to the Bedouin heritage camp for a lavish breakfast.

Impressive from start to finish, the hot air balloon experience is a must-do in Dubai.

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in, but in the winter months wear something warm as it is cold in the desert before the sun rises. As you need to climb in and out of the balloon basket, wearing a skirt or dress can get in the way. Although we know you want to look stylish for all those selfies, please don’t wear your high-heeled shoes. Trainers are normally the best. A hat and sunglasses are also a good idea for when the sun is up.
