Comfortable Shoes are a Must

Everyone struggles with the question of which footwear to wear on a hot air balloon ride and to them we scream ‘Shoes’. Remember to leave your heels, designer shoes, stilettos back at your place and come out in your sneakers, tennis shoes, athletic wear, wellies or even some walking boots.

These shoes would not only help you during your hour-long ride but also act as your best friends when you’re climbing on and off the ride. Moreover, the balloon would land and take off from a field which could be muddy, grassy or even sandy.

Thus, these strong and sturdy sets come in handy throughout all seasons as they keep your feet dry even when walking through a wet field or with the dew in the morning. Lastly, shoes are one of the things to wear on a hot air balloon as they also offer coverage by protecting you from other people stepping onto your feet as the space inside the hot air balloon is pretty limited for  moving around.

Trousers Are the Way Forward

Avoid wearing dresses, skirts, shorts or overly tight clothing as you  can be subjected to somewhat of a rough landing where it's important to be on your toes and getting out of the basket asap. Thereby, trousers would help you to be at ease and should unquestionably be on your list of things to wear on a hot air balloon.

 Not only that, as we go up in the air during mornings or evenings and you feel wind all around you, it’d be better to have worn something that covers your skin instead of shivering for 60 minutes straight.

Although these balloons are fitted with special heat shields to prevent passengers from getting too hot. Your head might get a little warm particularly when the balloon launches especially if you’re tall. Hence, resorting to any form of headwear, from a beanie, to a hat or even a Yankee would work. A hat is also recommended as one of the things to wear on a hot air balloon is to keep your hair from flowing in your face on the ride.

It’s impossible to think of drool-worthy views and not bring your camera along to capture those. You don’t go so high up in the air along with other hot air balloons in Cappadocia on a daily basis, hence it only makes sense in carrying your go-pros’ and small digital cameras along.

Though, if you still feel your camera might be at risk from such a height, then attach a strap to it and wear it over your neck. This would help you not only in having hands-free moments but will also aid you with the fear of losing your gear and equipment.

Some things are better left unsaid and some things are better left undone. Don’t accessorize with your precious jewelry for one reason primarily and that is, you might lose it. Your bracelets, earrings, watches, anklets all might be of some possessional or monetarily value to you and losing them would certainly be a huge loss.

There are several ways where you could have lost them , from landing on or off, to trekking or even mid-air. Hence, it's better to give them some rest and enjoy your day without them.


Before onboarding, consider the things that are really necessary or just extra baggage to carry. Most pilots don’t agree with people carrying blankets as they never come in service and just take up way more space in an already enclosed area.

Add layers if you must but avoid this unless you’re planning a picnic before or after your ride and need something as a spread.


A lot of your clothing would depend upon the sort of season you opt in for the ride. Winters would definitely require you to wear overcoats, jackets or blazers. Similarly, in summers and other seasons too it's vital to be layered.

The intensity of winds might increase up in the air and bearing it for an hour or more is undoubtedly cumbersome. Therefore, it's better to be safe than sorry and wear something full sleeves rather than half or none.
