Hot Air Ballooning in Luxor

For unbeatable views of Luxor’s famous temples, take a hot-air balloon flight over the Nile River’s west bank. Away from the crowds in the peaceful glow of dawn, your sunrise flight over Egypt’s ancient monuments promises to be a highlight of your visit.


  • Hot-air balloon flight over Luxor
  • Amazing sunrise aerial views of the River Nile, Karnak Temple and Hatshepsut Temple – and the flats!
  • See the West Bank in the early morning away from the crowds and desert heat
  • English-speaking guide/pilot
  • Flight certificate and souvenir
  • Pick-up and drop-off from Flats in Luxor or and of the Luxor hotels

Following a safety briefing and introduction to your ground crew and pilot, you will rise gently into the still-dark sky. The tranquility and beauty of the early-morning sun rising over the East Bank, illuminating the city of Luxor and surrounding mountains, is something you will never forget.To the east you can see Karnak Temple greeting the morning sun, while adjacent in the west there’s the magnificent Hatshepsut Temple. You’ll see the Colossi of Memnon rise from the crop fields and, winds permitting, fly over the Ramesseum for an unrivaled aerial view of the complex. In the distance, the hidden Valley of the Queens rests peacefully in the mountains.

A support van and your landing crew will follow the flight and will be there to meet your landing and assist with disembarkation. Your hot-air balloon flight will last approximately 30 to 45 minutes, and you’ll be back at your hotel or cruise ship in time for breakfast and morning tour departures.
