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.
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.
After around 40 to 50 minutes, (depending on weather conditions), 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 corn bread, 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.
