The highly qualified and competent pilots are accredited by the Moroccan and European civil aviation authorities.
Marrakech balloons move with the wind and the pilot can only control their altitude by heating the shell with burners. In addition to light winds and moderate temperatures, they also need a stable air mass.
Only if you take off after sunrise will you find these conditions. Fortunately, sunrise is one of the most beautiful moments of the day. That’s the end of hot air ballooning in Marrakech Morocco.
Balloon flights take place every day, depending on local conditions, and must be booked in advance.
