Why not try something different during your stay in Marrakech and take
to the skies to enjoy a balloon flight close to the Imperial Red City? You’ll be
in safe hands with an experienced pilot who’ll show you the beauty of Morocco’s dramatic landscapes against a backdrop of the Atlas Mountains. Just one hour from the legendary Djemaa el Fna square discover the amazing contrast that exists between the town and the surrounding countryside on a Marrakech hot air balloon flight.
Depart from your hotel early in the morning, between 0500 and 0630
(depending on season). For aerological reasons, the flights always occur very early in the morning. The time of departure will be specified at the time of your reservation.
The balloon flight itself lasts a minimum of an hour depending on the region whilst the whole excursion takes about 5 hours. This includes the preparation and inflation of the balloon in the open air, plus a traditional breakfast and the return journey by land-rover with the ground crew. Pilots are highly qualified and accredited with the Moroccan and European civil aviation authority.
Balloons go with the wind; the pilot can only control the altitude of the balloon by heating the inside of the envelope with the burners. Stability in the air is necessary as well as a slight wind and a mild temperature. The only way to get all these conditions is to take off just after sunrise. Happily, dawn is one of the most beautiful times of the day!
0500 Pick-up from riad or hotel. Time may vary by up to 1 hour 30 mins depending on season. 1 hour balloon flight up to 1000 metres altitude.
1000 Drop-off and end of tour.
