Full description
Just one hour away from the legendary Jemaa El Fna Square, your hot-air balloon will fly over the beautiful countryside, letting you see the amazing contrast between Morocco’s urban and rural areas.

After an early morning pick-up from your hotel in Marrakech, you will drive 45 minute out of the city to the balloon launch site.

Here you will 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, you journey will cover a distance between 9 and 15 miles (15-25 km), 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, you will be able to ride a camel around the Palmeraie.  

Afterwards, you will be taken to the village for mint tea and home baked bread at a local Berber household.

Following tea and bread, you will be taken back to Marrakesh and dropped off at your hotel.

See a new side of Morocco on this exciting trip, and see how a travelling a few kilometers outside of Marrakesh can take you back in time more than 2,000 years!
