Dubai has a stunning landscape that can be best experienced by soaring up high among the clouds like a falcon!
Musandam Travel & Tourism offers a serene, sunrise ride in a hot air balloon which will take your breath away! This tour is operated by a professional and perfect for families, friends, and couples. After a hotel-pick up at 4 o’clock in the morning, you will enjoy a comfortable drive through the desert and be captivated by the fantastic scenery as you approach the launch site of the hot air balloon.
As you leave behind the beautiful coastline and 21st-century skyline, with manmade-palm-shaped islands, the terrain transforms into a sprawling-natural-red-and-golden desert. You will be enchanted by the landscape that unfolds beneath you: enormous dunes through which gazelles and oryxes run, in which camels camouflage, and in which determined plants thrive. In the distance, to the West, the arresting architecture of a modern city tries to reach the sky while, to the East, the centuries-old-Hajar mountains stand tall and proud showcasing its jagged-rocky surface reminiscent of a Mars-like setting. These sights are illuminated by the rising sun against a bright blue sky, as you enjoy the cool and peaceful morning air interrupted only by the occasional burst of gas from the burner. After you touch down, you will be driven back to your hotel around 9 o’clock in the morning.
What makes this tour even more special is that the hot air balloon follows the wind taking a new path and offering beautiful, differing views each time!
Children under 6 years of age, anyone with recent injuries (ie. broken bones), and people with chronic back or neck pain are not permitted to join the tour.
As the weather can be quite cool, especially in the winter months, it is advised to carry a jacket and other warm clothing. Sunblock and a hat is ideal for sunny days in a desert.
Consider the entry into the hot air balloon and avoid wearing skirts and dresses, as well as high-heeled shoes, as they will likely hinder your entry and exit of the basket.
Begin this adventure before sunrise with a hotel-pick up at 4 o’clock in the morning, followed by a comfortable drive through the desert; you will enjoy the fantastic scenery as you approach the launch site of the hot air balloon. Professional operators will help you climb into the basket of the hot air balloon and away you will soar into the sky!
As you float above the red dunes, a mesmerizing landscape slowly unveils itself beneath you. In time, as you rise higher into the desert sky, several opposing views are revealed: the rugged Hajar Mountains to the East and the 21st-century skyline of Dubai to the West.
After landing and disembarking, you will be dropped back to your hotel around 9 o’clock in the morning.
