Marrakech Classic Hot Air Balloon Flight with Berber Breakfast

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Watch the sunrise over Morocco with a Marrakech hot air balloon flight that’s timed to catch first light on the Jbilet Mountains, the Red City, and the Atlas Mountains. Because the flight path includes high- and low-altitude time, you'll have a beautifully varied experience as you soar with panoramic views of the mountains, drift over Berber villages and farms, and then touch down for a Berber breakfast in a traditional tent.
  • See the Marrakech sunrise from a hot air balloon as you fly between two mountain ranges
  • Touch down for morning tea and a post-flight breakfast
  • Bring home aerial photographs of Morocco
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Marrakech hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Marrakech hotel for the ride to the hot air balloon launch site, where you’ll be served mint tea while the flight crew prepares the balloons. Board the balloon compartment: there’s a maximum of four passengers per compartment, totaling 16 passengers in the 4-compartment basket. Lift off from the ground, rising along with the sun. Enjoy views to the Jbilet Mountains, Marrakech, and the Atlas Mountains.  Next, drift low over the landscape, watching villages, farms, and schools come to life in the early morning light. After an hour of flight, touch back down and meet the vehicles. Travel through the countryside to a traditional caidal tent for a hearty Berber breakfast. After receiving a flight certificate, conclude your hot air balloon trip with return transfer to your Marrakech hotel.
