Earth Day in Napa, is a fantastic time to be outside and to celebrate Nature’s bounty and the wonderful things we enjoy. There is no better place to proclaim those many gifts of Nature than in beautiful Napa Valley. While Napa Valley is widely noted as America’s foremost wine region, the vineyards and farms, mountains and the beautiful blue skies are breathtaking in springtime. Each morning you will even spot Napa Valley balloons floating skyward with excited passengers enjoying the magnificent view from their own bird’s eye perspective.
Earth Day is celebrated throughout the world to promote environmental awareness and the protection of our planet.

After floating gloriously in a hot air balloon California ride, you may also hike or bike throughout the Valley on the many miles of trails. The weather is mild in April, so you should be comfortable as you travel through the region.
