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.

We done this trip last Monday and it was absolutely fantastic. We were picked up promptly and really well looked after the whole time. Everyone involved was superb and I have to give a special thank you to the pilot who was great !! The take off and landing were very smooth and the flight was amazing. We had a hearty breakfast when we got back with lovely food and of course mint tea the best in the world . Then we set off for our camel ride.

What a fantastic morning, the whole experience was superb and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Marrakech.

The balloon ride was amazing! It was so beautiful at sunrise. Our trip was actually supposed to be cancelled due to weather, but thankfully the wind and rain held out just long enough for us to still be able to go. The company was good with their communication as well. They called our Riad to let them know it may be cancelled and then called again when we were still able to go. The balloon pilot was hilarious and made the whole ride even more fun : The berber breakfast was good and there were many options. The camel ride was fun, but did leave a little to be desired. The lot that we walked around was not very nice, but I may be bias because the day before we had done a camel ride on the beach in Essaouira that was wonderful. Even with that though, I would still highly recommend this tour. We really enjoyed it!

Amazing experience. Our driver collected us right on time and we arrived at the separture point in good time. All staff were friendly and our balloon 'pilot' was great. He made everyone feel at ease. Although there it felt like a really early start, we were in the air to see the sunrise over ththe Atlas Mountains - and good to see that the other balloon operators were still on the ground filling their balloons so would have missed this spectacular sight. A decent breakfast which gave us a chance to sample a range of local dishes. Then off for a camel ride around a small grove. This wasn't long, but long enough to get a feel for it. All in all, def worth it.
