Itinerary
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 eight 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.

Honeymoon balloon ride!

Beautiful experience, the balloon ride alone would be worth it (and the pilot's sense of humour did wonders to put everyone at ease) - but the extras really made the experience special. We were well looked after from collection at our riad to dropping off...More

Amazng Experience

The experience was amazing! I would do it again! The only clarification I would add is that this is not an Atlas Mts Balloon ride as the description says. You will ride about 10-15k out of Marrakech and launch from there back towards the city....More

The noise of the gas heaters on the balloon may scare them.We had a bad landing which required holding on to the sides of the basket which would be hard if you were holding on to the child.I would not bring my 2 year old.

I don’t think so there is very little walking and I am sure if you alert them in advance they will help as much as possible
