Marrakech: Classic Balloon Flight

1. Marrakech: Classic Balloon Flight

Just one hour away from the legendary Jemaa El Fna Square, your hot-air balloon will fly over the beautiful countryside, letting you see the amazing contrast between Morocco’s urban and rural areas. After an early morning pickup from your hotel in Marrakech, you will drive 45 minutes out of the city to the balloon launch site. Here you will receive a full pre-flight safety briefing and have a chance to watch the launch team prepare the balloon for departure. Once in the air, your journey will cover a distance between 9 and 15 miles (15-25 km), depending on the wind speed, taking you over a local village and the picturesque surrounding areas. The flight will last one hour, and after a gradual descent back to land, you will be taken to the village for mint tea and home-baked bread at a local Berber household. Following tea and bread, you will be taken back to Marrakesh and dropped off at your hotel. See a new side of Morocco on this exciting trip, and see how traveling a few kilometers outside of Marrakesh can take you back in time more than 2,000 years!

What people are saying about Atlas Mountains

Worth every single penny! This experience was unbelievable. I was really nervous and had a lot of anxiety and honestly, I am so so glad I took the plunge. The whole thing is a military operation, from pick up to drop off - it's so well ran which makes you feel a lot better about the whole thing if you're nervous (like me!). We were picked up at 4:25am (ouch!) but it was well worth it to see the sunrise from the balloon. Once everyone's arrived you're taken to a balloon which you share with about 16-18 people. You're in the balloon for about 45mins - 1 hour before landing and then you're taken to the berber tents where you started for a delicious breakfast (I thought it was better than what we got in the hotel!). I would definitely recommend the 5:00am option so you see the sunrise, over the 7:00am option, as it's just such a magical experience.

Cannot fault it ! Organisation was second to none from collecting us from our hotel to the balloon ride and breakfast. Really friendly and ultra professional. Balloon ride was magnificent and felt totally safe. Great breakfast afterwards with a wide choice of buffet to eat. Dropped off back our hotel, we loved it and would definitely do it again and 100% recommend it !

This is a definite must when you visit Marrakesh. It was a wonderful experience even though our pick up time was at 4:30am, we got to see the sunrise. Every part of the experience was so well organised. I am looking forward to receiving our video.

The early rise was worth the spectacular experience. Made welcome with tea or coffee, then the serene balloon flight and finally breakfast on return. Loved every moment

Absolutely perfect Hearty and delicious breakfast Top activity Very well organized
