This hot air balloon over Luxor means you'll float over the thousand-year-old Luxor temples as the sun rises, allowing you to get a bird's eye view of these majestic remains of the time of the pharaohs.
Luxor Hot Air Balloon
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Luxor first thing in the morning, under cover of darkness and before the day has truly begun. During the transfer to the launch site, you'll warm up with tea, coffee, and a little bit of breakfast.
With the balloon ready, you'll get comfortable inside the basket and enjoy an unforgettable ride over the temples of Luxor, in time with the rising sun. During the 50 minute flight, you'll appreciate how the sun bathes the ancient remains in both orange and crimson light, and its reflection on the River Nile.
You'll see both the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Nobles from above, and even see the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, perhaps the most impressive of all for its massive size and seeming unity with the surrounding landscape. No wonder the temple complex, carved into the rock, has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
With the flight over, you'll receive a flight certificate which will accredit you as having experienced this unforgettable morning. And finally, from the landing zone, we'll take you back to your hotel in Luxor.
We recommend that you reserve your hot air balloon ride as early in your holiday as possible. This way, if there is a cancellation due to adverse weather conditions, you can plan to take the ride on a different day.
