Press a button and head into the skies – starting this week, Uber has launched its new travel product: hot air balloon rides in the Goreme National Park, Cappadocia.
Hot air balloon rides in Cappadocia, Turkey, can be booked through the Uber app using the Uber Reserve feature.
The flights take place in the morning at sunrise, with a flight duration of 1.5 hours.
An adventure like this should be experienced at least once in a lifetime – the spectacle is incredibly beautiful, and I can attest to it from my own experience.
The cost of a hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia is 150 euros. This includes a transfer from the hotel to the launch site, the balloon flight, and the return transfer to the hotel.
To celebrate the launch of the new Uber program, the company has announced that the first 100 flights will be free. The free flights will be limited to 4 people daily and will be available until November 19.
Flights will also be subject to weather conditions. Balloons do not fly in windy weather.
