Journey into the heart of the Arabian desert and prepare yourself for an aerial adventure unlike any other. Discover Dubai’s most tranquil side and take in picturesque views of the emirate, 4,000 feet above ground. Catch the sun rising against the breathtaking backdrop of desert dunes on a hot air balloon adventure and savour a gourmet breakfast or four-course dinner with the experience.
An early morning balloon flight is definitely well worth waking up for. The sun rising on the horizon over the majestic Al Hajar Mountains paints everything in hues of red and orange. You can imagine the rush of excitement, gazing down at the undulating sand dunes. You might even spot gazelles, camels and oryx wandering freely below. Accompanying you on this aerial adventure is the UAE’s national bird and you can witness the falcon’s flight as it swoops over the desert as your balloon soars higher.
Once you land, you will be transported to a traditional Bedouin camp in the desert where breakfast will be served. Tuck into some delicious caviar, eggs benedict, smoked salmon and fresh fruit along with a selection of cold refreshments. Myconcierge members can also opt for a wildlife safari in an open-top 1950’s Land Rover after breakfast to get up close and personal with the desert fauna.
Evening hot air balloon flights, available only during the winter months, allow you the chance to experience the magic of sunset with panoramic views high above the ground in a small luxury balloon, suitable for eight guests only. After the experience, you will be whisked away to the Bedouin camp for a royal four-course dinner comprising Arabic delights such as lamb ouzi, camel stew, hummus and so much more. All through the evening, you can enjoy cultural performances while relishing a variety of shisha flavours under a blanket of stars.
