Now a very popular activity for manned flights, the hot air balloons concept originates from Sky Lanterns. For thousands of years people have been releasing lanterns in places such as Taiwan and Thailand, believing that lanterns release good luck wishes.

The first ever manned flight was developed in 1783, by Jean-Francois pilatre de Rozier. Since then it's taken off as a hobby, and modern hot air balloons with an on board heat source have been around since the 1960's. What will your Hot Air Balloon adventure have in store for you?

Our Pick

Possibly the best place to go to fly in a hot air balloon is in Cappadocia. Each morning balloons come together in an amazing sunrise flight taking a look over fairy chimney pots of Cappadocia. The mountain range backdrop giving this flight a beautiful edge. The early bird catches the worm definitely has substance on this excursion.
