Marrakech hot air balloon ride programme

A hot air balloon flight over Marrakech offers you a stark contrast between the city and the surrounding countryside.

Depending on the season, you will take off early in the morning, between 05:00 and 06:30, from your hotel.

For areological reasons, flights always take off early in the morning. We will inform you of the exact departure time when you make your reservation.

The balloon adventure depends on the region, but lasts up to five hours. The ground crew prepares the balloon and inflates it in the open air, serves a traditional breakfast and returns with the ground crew in a Landrover. 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.

Don’t forget.
Bring your camera, comfortable clothing, sunscreen and warm clothing.

Notes: Special diets should be advised in advance. Lunch includes wine.

    Meno male che abbiamo conosciuto Yassine!! Tramite un passaparola di amici siamo arrivati a Yassine. Non avrei potuto chiedere di meglio. Una guida molto informata, parla diverse lingue e sa tanto di ogni cosa anche non inerente al Marocco. Una persona educatissima e disponibile per ogni necessità. La frase che più mi ha fatta sentire serena è stata quella che spesso ripete “take your time” ….che altro chiedere durante un viaggio dove vuoi solo rilassarti!?? Yassine è la guida che assolutamente consiglierei, avevamo una bimba di due anni e chiaramente aveva messo a disposizione seggiolini perfetti, non ci ha fatto mancare nulla e la sua cordialità rimane impressa. Abbiamo fatto una giornata nel deserto di Agafay e un giorno intero con lui alle cascate di Sti Fadma. Grazie Yassine.Gaia, Raffaele e Sveva !

    Morocco tour with Yassine Amazing 6 day tour around Morocco with Yassine! We loved our trip - especially the overnight trip to the Sahara - and wish we could have stayed longer. Very well organised and a great way to see the country.

    3 day tour with Yassine Yassine promised us a trip to remember, and he sure delivered. - His passion for Morocco shone through as he shared his experiences and answered all our questions in our quest to learn more about the country. - His easy going, welcoming and fun natured spirit made us feel like a part of the Moroccan family.- After my 3-day tour, he even helped coordinate any new arrangements I needed during the remainder of my stay in Morocco. - there was one hiccup I had on arrival at the airport and his team quickly resolved the matter with ease- He gave us enough space to allow us to enjoy moments on our own - He is a Safe and reliable driver and was always on time- He ensured we had everything we needed and that all our requests were met (dietary, sleeping arrangements, shopping etc) - the length of the tour was managed with sufficient time so that we were not rushed and could have stopped whenever we wanted. - Good with the camera and always ready to take great photos of us- Hotels chosen for us were very beautiful, relaxing and comfortable and seemed to be in the ideal locations- it was great to have someone else do the planning for once I definitely recommend Yassine (Morocco Sunny Days) to plan your entire trip in Morocco.

    Amazing adventures with Yassine Yassine is simply the best to go on a cross-country trip with! We enjoyed a wonderful and magical experience going to the Desert Camp in Erg Chigage with him and an even more charming trip to port town of Essaouira. He's not just an experienced driver but also a lovely, kind and funny person - it's fun to be on the road with him. We always felt secure and well looked after as Yassine is very attentive and makes every journey or trip as comfortable and interesting as possible. We've seen and learned a lot during our travels with him and also enjoyed some great conversations! Keep up the amazing work!
