Atlas Mountains Hot Air Balloon Ride from Marrakech with Berber Breakfast and Desert Camel Experience

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
If you’re keen to do a hot air balloon ride over the Atlas Mountains while in Marrakech, it seems like a waste not to add the extra touches that will make it a super-memorable experience. On this tour, you get numerous perks, including snacks and coffee as you watch your balloon inflating, plus a post-flight camel ride and Berber-style breakfast that lets you relax and talk about your experience before returning to your hotel.
  • 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.

Booked this for Tuesday 11/5 but then checked weather reports that indicated it would be overcast so called to switch to Wednesday. The person that we contacted indicated Tuesday would be better so we kept it as scheduled. We got picked up at our hotel promptly at 5:45 am.

I booked this hot balloon ride for Nov 9th almost one month in advance, and paid the full amount to TripAdvisor. I wrote an email to the team of Marrakech By Air asking them if they would be able to play the Happy Birthday Song during our ride because it’s my husband’s birthday.

I was really dubious about doing something like this alone but I am so pleased I did!! The whole experience from being picked up, breakfast in the dark at the camp & the ride itself. Such a bizarre, emotional feeling I couldn’t help but cry! If you’re thinking ‘should I,

I was looking forward to this experience when I signed up for the hot air balloon ride. It was all that I could have hoped for and more. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to a staging area to meet other vehicles, then to the area for the balloon ride. There was coffee
