Overview

Enjoy bird’s-eye views of Morocco’s deserts and the foothills of the Atlas Mountains on a sunrise hot-air balloon ride from Marrakech. Ride a 4x4 to the launch spot in the early morning and drift through the dawn skies over the desert valleys and hillsides just as the sun casts them in gold, orange and pink. Then, land safely back on ground to enjoy a tasty Berber breakfast and memorable camel ride. A flight certificate to commemorate your balloon ride is also included.
  • Sit down to a typical Berber breakfast after your flight
  • Enjoy a camel ride through the Moroccan desert
  • Take home a flight certificate as a souvenir of your Morocco hot air balloon ride
  • Make use of a hotel pickup and drop-off service from central Marrakech

Departure Time

6:00 AM
Rise early and leave your Marrakech hotel by 4x4 with your guide. Relax inside the air-conditioned vehicle as you travel to the launch site in time for your balloon ride.

On arrival, boost your energy with pastries, tea, and coffee and look on as your experienced crew prepares your balloon. Climb into the spacious basket for takeoff. Each basket accommodates up to 16 people, and there’s ample room for you to sightsee comfortably as you fly.

Thrill as your balloon rises into the skies and ogle the aerial views of the desert as you float through the air. Take photos of the rocky valleys and peaks as your pilot steers your balloon over the foothills of the Atlas Mountains.

Touch down safely back to ground then, take a seat in a tent overlooking the mountains and savor a delicious breakfast of Berber staples such as cornbread, pancakes, olives, fresh fruit, and mint tea.

Having enjoyed breakfast, take a camel ride around the sandy lanes of the Palmeraie desert complex next to the camp.

Receive a commemorative flight certificate to mark your balloon ride, and return to your Marrakech hotel by 4x4 to end your trip.

Wow... absolutely recommended. I was a little nervous but from start to finish this was a great experience. I sent an iMessage to the local operator using hotel WiFi the day before and received a prompt response confirming pick up time. We were first to be picked up and the driver of our comfy 4x4 was on time. We stopped to pick up 4 other people then a short drive out of Marrakech to the balloon take off location. Coffee, a warm fire and pastries provided. It was a bit chilly as still dark so wear something warm. Met up with around 14 others for the flight which was amazing. No need for nerves the pilot was so relaxed and there’s a team there on take off and landing to help. Make sure you wear jeans or leggings - a skirt isn’t such a good idea for climbing into the basket - but don’t worry - I took my mum who is In her 70s and she managed just fine. You are in flight in time to see the sun rise over the Atlas Mountains which is just stunning. Landing was so gentle and smooth... and then a short drive by 4x4 back for breakfast. Stopped for Camel ride on the way back to Marrakech - I’ve been on a camel a few times but it was new to my mum - she was apprehensive but after a couple of minutes relaxed into it. A fantastic and really memorable experience- take a fully charged camera and enjoy 😀

Air ballon ride great but skip the ”camel” experience

The air ballon ride was great, pilot Maria very experienced (and funny). The ”camel” experience was a joke. 10 min on a dromedar, animals not well treated. Avoid
