Full description

Discover Morocco from the perspective of a hot air balloon. Embark on this thrilling ride above the Palm Grove of Marrakech and its surrounding landscape to see a bird's eye view of the area. Round off your experience with a cup of fresh mint tea and visit to a local Berber house.

Just one hour away from the legendary Jemaa El Fna Square, fly in a hot-air balloon over the beautiful countryside, seeing the amazing contrast between Morocco’s urban and rural areas. After an early morning pickup from your hotel in Marrakech, sit back and relax on the 45-minute drive out of the city to the balloon launch site. Here, receive a full pre-flight safety briefing and have a chance to watch the launch team prepare the balloon for departure. Once in the air, cover a distance between 9 and 15 miles (15 to 25 kilometers), depending on the wind speed, taking you over a local village and the picturesque surrounding areas. The flight will last one hour, and after a gradual descent back to land, head to a local village for mint tea and home-baked bread in a local Berber household. Following tea and bread, head back to Marrakech.

    Amazing experience. Arrived just as balloons being inflated. Just time for a coffee and off we went. Pierre put us at ease. All but one of our group had flown before but we were talked through everything that was about to happen. No rush getting in and out of balloon basket - the ground crew were also amazing. It was a new experience for me to fly amongst other balloons and views were lovely. No actual sunrise on our flight but the calmness was very relaxing. Nice gentle landing followed by a generous breakfast of tea, juice, bread, eggs, pancakes and yoghurt. All in all a lovely way to start the day. X

    An experience not to be missed. To float silently over the desert and see the sun rise through the mists sourounding the mountains is a memory for life. The event was well organized and the pilot was safe but entertaining. Equipment was in excellent condition. The pilot told me the company never buys second hand equipment. Be ready for an early start with an hotel pickup around 5am. On landing at you will be treated to a light breakfast in a traditional tent. It's not particularly cheap but do it if you can afford it, you won't regret the experience. Ian
