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.

Wonderful selection of activities whilst in Marrakech! Hamit the captain is an entertainer and sometimes even too loud to enjoy the peaceful morning from 400 meters above. The berber breakfast was nice, as was the little trip on the camels at the Palmerie. Certainly recommend!

Had the most amazing morning this morning. After cancellations two days running we began to doubt it would happen. But today, we got the go ahead and met the driver at 6.30am for the short trip out to the launch site. The pastries and tea/coffee while the balloon was readied were very welcome and then Captain Ahmed had us up in the air and laughing off any nervousness we were feeling.
Floating above the fields and houses was such an amazing experience and when the sun first peeped across the Atlas Mountains in the distance, it was breath-taking. The landing was as gentle as you're ever likely to get and the breakfast which followed really hit the spot. Before long we were travelling back into town for camel riding.
This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us as a family of five age range 7yo to adult and one we will never forget. Do yourself a favour. It is worth every cent. Just do it!

Me and my wife had a fantastic and very memorable experience! They picked us up from our hotel early morning, arrived at the area and had a very delicious Berber breakfast and then went for the hot air balloon which was so freakin' cool! The pilot was funny and truly entertained all of us passengers. The desert camel experience was also a fun and very interesting experience! In general we would highly recommend this tour! Excellent value for money indeed!

From the beginning this was a trip of a lifetime, our chauffeur was prompt and called ahead when he was on his way to confirm the location of the hotel. The balloon flight was a short drive and the team got the balloon setup really quick and gave us tea at the take off site! We had an absolute blast, the pilot is so professional and a fantastic character! We passed peacefully over villages and even had some music on the decent provided by the support crew. The pilot said if he landed the balloon on the back of the trailer would I give him a review....the fact is I would have rated this 5 star without the precision flying! excellent experience and I would recommend in a heart beat!

Fantastic tour!
Well organised and smooth, a very romantic experience, the pilot was very funny and kept things light with great views. The breakfast was very nice in a traditional hut and the camel ride to finish was great.

Overall a great trip would definitely recommend!

Great trip. We were picked up from our hotel early in the morning. Then the ride by 4x4 to a location just out of Marrakech. The Balloon ride was great. Peaceful once you are on it. We went to just below 800m. Hamid was the pilot and very good. He has a jovial manner which is great and always there to help. Once landed we were taken for some breakfast, followed by camel ride. Great trip and highly recommended.

We had an amazing experience after our initial flight was cancelled due to strong winds. Our pilot was very entertaining and complemented the flight. Everything was very professional and we always felt in safe hands. We all thoroughly recommend this experience. Thanks Steve Cann

WOW! WOW! WOW! A trip of a lifetime. This was a Marrakech highlight for me. The pilot made the trip, as he put everyone at ease. We started out at 6:30am and had a quick stop at a Berber settlement. Once our balloon had landed, we made our way to the pick up point. The ride was smooth and beautiful. The day was clear and we could see quite far out. Once we landed, we watched as they deflated the balloon. Then we headed back to the Berber house for breakfast and on our return to Marrakech- there was a 20min Camel ride. All in all, money well spent and incredible memories made.
