Marrakech hot air ballooning itinerary:
After an early morning pick up ( exact time depends on the season ), and a 45 minutes 4×4 transfer north of Marrakech, you will arrive at Marrakech hot air ballooning base. You are welcome to assist your captain and his crew in preparing the balloon launches, or just watch from a distance.
You will then be briefed about the ride, what to expect and some security rules before you take off.
Once in the air, you will fly at an altitude of 9 to 15 miles ( 15 to 25 Km ) depending on the wind speed.
During your flight, which will take approximately one hour, you will fly over adobe mud brick Berber villages, the surrounding desert, and the palm grove.
After a gradual descent, and your landing, continue your adventure with a visit to a Berber family to share some homemade bread and crepes, olive oil and mint tea.
Your Marrakech hot air ballooning activity will end around 11h00 AM with a drop off at your Marrakech hotel or a location of your choice.
Duration: 4 hours ( roughly )
