Balloon Expeditions

Leave the glitz and the glamour of the city behind and join our balloon expedition deep into the desert! Enjoy a magic carpet ride over giant red sand dunes, emerald green oases, gazelles and wandering camels. Be welcomed by the warmth of the desert people we chance to meet on landing. Our balloon takes off from a desert oasis located north of Al Ain. It is about an hour’s drive from Abu Dhabi and Dubai. It is a remote area that is truly in the heart of the desert
