As you float up to the sky, the hues along the horizon begin to transform into beautiful shades of yellows and oranges. Depending on which direction you are facing, you will see the Arabian sun rising behind the Hajar mountains over the desert dunes – and 4,000ft in the sky is one of the best places in the world to witness the beauty of sunrise. Look out for the Arabian oryx, gazelles or wandering camels on the sand dunes below. Every balloon flight is approximately one hour long and, every day, the balloons land somewhere different in the desert depending on the wind.
The adventure doesn't end there. After your once-in-a-lifetime experience of the desert from up above, get ready to travel through the dunes in vintage Land Rover to an authentic heritage camp in a royal desert retreat. These 1950s Land Rovers were the first motorised vehicles introduced to the desert and have been resorted to their former glory.
New adventures always work up an appetite. Arrive at an authentic heritage camp to enjoy a five-star breakfast in the heart of the desert. Relax in this beautiful setting and enjoy a delicious spread of eggs Benedict, shakshuka, salmon, caviar, halloumi cheese, fresh fruit, cold cut platters and more. At the camp you can experience the thrill of a camel ride and take photos with a falcon, or sit back and relax in the traditional majlis. When you are ready, your driver will take you back to the city.
