What You Can Expect

Atlas Mountains Hot Air Balloon Ride from Marrakech with Berber Breakfast and Desert Camel Experience

Experience a camel ride after breakfast to end your tour

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.

This experience was definitely one to tick off the bucket list! The pilot was absolutely hilarious!! - he literally made the whole ride truly unforgettable! The only slight let down was we didn and #39;t quite make it in time to have our hot air balloon ride at sunrise as we and #39;d expected! Still- 5*!

This tour was one of the greatest experience in our lives me and my family, two adults and two kids. The tour itself was organized just perfect, everything was on time with very professional staff both on the ground and the agency and on the air.
The content of the tour is also to recommend to everyone hot air balloon flight, breakfast in the Berbers village and camel ride. It was 4-5 hours of pure excitement and enjoying.
The tour is not cheap, especially when you have to pay for 4 full ticket for one family, but it is worth each penny.
And lastly, but not least, our greatest applause goes to our pilot, who has relaxed us before taking off, who made jokes during the flight, and who safely landed the balloon to the ground. Very professionally.

I had booked this trip as a surprise gift for my wife for our forthcoming wedding anniversary. It most definitely didn't dissapoint!

From the moment we were collected from our Riad in the 4x4 we were both extremely excited.

The car was clean and the rest of the passengers seemed as excited if not a little tired as we were.

We drove for approximately 45 minutes, the drive itself was nice, pretty comfortable, considering there were 6 plus a driver. We had only booked for a 4 night stay in Marrakesh. So the drive meant we got to see outside the city of so much hustle and bustle.

We turned off of the main road and into a rocky desert, drove a little further and ended up at a berber house.

We were welcomed with Berber tea and coffee and various breakfast pastries. The guys then started work on erecting the balloon. Our excitement was looming. We were called across to the magnificent balloon and asked to jump in at various entry points, we were introduced to our pilot who was a cheeky Morrocan chap. His english was good, the group we were with were all english speaking, so i couldn't say if he spoke other languages, apart from arabic.

The pilot asked us all to dip down within the basket, as he fired off the above head burner.

We were dipped down for less than 30 seconds, he then said ok stand up. As if by magic, we were about 30ft from the ground.

I think everyone's elation was apparent, the pilot then cracked many jokes to settle everyone and to build a rapport with the group.

The views were amazing, peacefully rising higher and higher. It was everything I had hoped it would be.

The pilot then landed the balloon into the trailer of a jeep. The landing was textbook. We hopped out and were driven back to the berber house, this time to a full berber breakfast.

After about 45 minutes we were taken to what i could only describe as a camel park. We were all asked to put on some traditional Berber clothes... then hopped on board our camels.
