Hot Air Ballooning

For a very special occasion giving the ultimate view of Marrakech and the High Atlas Mountains, the magic of a flight in a Hot Air Balloon is worth considering.

Launching from just outside the city the certified pilot will take you (normally in a westerly direction) to a height of around 1,000 metres to provide unrivalled views of the High Atlas Mountains, oases, Berber villages, the terraced irrigated fields of the Oueds Tinsift and Nfis of the Al Haouz Plain alongside the Jbilet Hills.

Flight Options

A few flight types are available:

  • Shared Flight Option - transfer and flight may be shared with others (min 2 persons per flight).
  • Champagne Option - French Champagne upon landing to make the occasion even more special.
  • VIP Exclusive Champagne Option - as per the Champagne Option but includes private transportation and a private flight for your party.

Advice on booking

Flights are weather dependant so you are advised to book your flight for a day early in your stay in case your flight is delayed and your trip may be run on an alternative day. If weather conditions are not suitable at anytime, the fee will be refunded.

Please note: Hot air balloon flights are not available from mid-June, July & August due to the extreme heat.
