A Hot Air Balloon In Luxor is one of the best things to do in Egypt. Exploring Luxor and watching the sunrise illuminating the sky from a hot air balloon is a breathtaking Experience. Early morning start to travel to the west bank of the River Nile and board a shared balloon basket for a 40 to 50 minutes flight.
View the Theban necropolis in the west bank of the Nile, the area has often been described as the biggest open-air museum and a view from the sky supports the description. The hot air balloon trip takes off every day from West Bank, however confirmation in advance is still highly recommended. With door-to-door transportation included.
Fly up into the Egyptian morning sky and get a bird’s eye view overlooking the World’s greatest open-air museum during this hot air balloon ride. Get your camera ready for a stunning hot balloon ride over the historical city of Luxor. See ancient landmarks from above as you drift over the city, illuminated by the early morning sun like the colossi of Memnon, Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, Ramesseum Temple and more.
The ride is an incredibly peaceful time in the air. The hot air balloon basket is literally floating, you don’t feel a thing and it’s so silent. All the while you fly over one of the most amazing sceneries worldwide. If the wind is right, you even fly over the Valley of the Kings! It’s honestly so amazing, you really can’t miss this!
Is the Hot Air Ballooning in Luxor safe?
Civil Aviation Observer Mahmoud Zain stated that the number of hot air balloon rides in Luxor surpasses 30 rides per day. He added that the balloons are checked daily by accredited engineers and trainers to ensure the ballooners’ safety.
Trips are canceled when the speed of the wind is high as balloons move horizontally depending on that speed. Balloons can go high in the sky by up to 500 meters depending on the extent to which the air is heated by the pilot.
Balloons in Luxor may land in locations different from those of departure where vehicles wait to pick up tourists after they enjoy a panoramic view of the city described as an open museum for housing many ancient Egyptian temples and tombs.
Luxor has ranked second in the list of top seven hot air ballooning destinations published by Matador Network in August 2019.
