When the Virgin Challenger took flight from Marrakech with hot air balloon enthusiast Richard Branson in the basket, it brought hot air ballooning in Morocco to the public’s notice. It’s no surprise that he built a magnificent resort in the Atlas Mountains so that visitors could enjoy nearby hot air balloon excursions. Many individuals have been addicted to the thrill of riding in a hot air balloon. The pleasure of being lifted into the air and gliding on the breezes has its own attraction. It is a sensation that can only be lived, floating above the planet with no engine noise breaking the serenity and tranquility of the sky and nothing but limitless vistas spread out in all directions.

Visitors who want to take a hot air balloon trip should plan on getting up early. Because most pilots take off before daylight, they will be picked up from their hotels or lodgings at around 5:00 or 6:00 a.m., depending on the season. Pilots of hot air balloons maintain continual touch with vehicles following them on the ground in case of an emergency and to inform the ground crew of their landing position. Passengers will be treated to stunning views of the Atlas Mountains, Queds Tinsift, and the Al Hawuz Plain throughout the one-hour journey.

Passengers will be given time upon arrival in the Berber settlements to have a substantial breakfast and browse around the little marketplaces before being taken to their accommodation. Various packages are offered upon request, and reservations must be made in advance. The Hot Air Balloon Company will also provide you with a certificate as verification of your journey. Passengers should bring a warm sweater for chilly early mornings and sunglasses for after daybreak.
