Butterfly Balloons is our ideal boutique enterprise, created out of 20 years piloting experience in Cappadocia and around the world. Mike and I have come a long way since May 2010. After spending the last decade in the biggest balloon operators of Cappadocia, we have decided to go on as we love to do it.
Instead of having more than 30 people in the baskets, we have limited the number to 16.
Instead of taking-off on the same site everyday, we started to plan the take-off site according to wind direction and speed.
Instead of trying to finish the flight as soon as possible, we started to give a guarantee for minimum flight durations.
The 'Butterfly Way' of ballooning in Cappadocia, has also inspired a few other companies and recently, we started to see some other pilots changing their take-off site day to day. We are proud of it.
In less than two years, we are number 1 on numerous travel forums, acknowledged by many guide books including Lonely Planet and, now the first choice of Rick Steves in the USA. Thank you to all our new-found friends on whose praise we are riding high. We focus on your individuality and our exclusiveness, mix it with fun and adventure, and we give you the flight of a lifetime over the stunning landscape of Cappadocia.
