Overview
A must for Marrakech visitors, this morning tour takes you soaring over the foothills of Morocco’s Atlas Mountains on a sunrise hot air balloon ride. Touch down for a freshly prepared Berber breakfast followed by a camel ride through the palm-scattered desert, and then return to Marrakech by 4x4 vehicle. A flight certificate is included as a souvenir of your experience.
Highlights
  • All-in-one hot air balloon ride, Berber breakfast, and camel ride from Marrakech
  • Ride a balloon, and see the sun rise over the Atlas foothills
  • Talk about your flight over a traditional Berber breakfast in a tent
  • Snacks and post-flight camel ride are included for a well-rounded experience
  • Earn bragging rights with a souvenir flight certificate
  • Hotel pickup and drop-off in Marrakech for an added convenience
What to Expect
Begin early with a 4x4 pickup at your Marrakech hotel, and journey to the balloon launch location. On arrival, refuel with tea, coffee, and pastries, and watch your expert team prepare and inflate your balloon. Then, settle into the sturdy basket for takeoff. Each basket carries up to 16 passengers, and there’s ample space to relish the sights as you fly. Gaze at the desert and admire the sunrise over the craggy valleys and mountains as you float over the Atlas foothills. Touch down and visit a tent to enjoy a Berber-style breakfast of delicacies such as flatbreads, pancakes, fresh fruit, and mint tea. Receive a souvenir flight certificate, and then take a camel ride around the Palmeraie, the palm oasis skirting Marrakech. Your experience then finishes with a drop-off at your hotel.
