Finding fun activities in the Napa Valley is never a hard thing to do. With its lush and natural beauty, as well as the laid-back atmosphere, the Napa Valley is conducive for rest and relaxation. However, the open space of the region also allows tourists to enjoy plenty of fun outdoor activities.
If you are the outdoorsy type who craves fresh air and adventure, you will never run out of fun activities in the Napa Valley. Consider having some fun by exploring the beauty of the Napa Valley on a bicycle ride. You can hire several road, mountain or hybrid bikes from bike rentals in the Wine Country. You may join a group of other tourist-bikers led by a local tour guide, or bike on your own and explore the beauty of Napa Valley up close! Bike along country roads or ride off-road near the vineyards.
If hiking is more to your liking, the Napa Valley has vast spaces teeming with hiking spots of virtually untouched natural beauty that you and your friends can explore! Gorgeous hiking spots such as the Skyline Wilderness Park, Bothe-Napa Valley State Park, and the Robert Louis Stevenson State Park consist of lush forests and pristine creeks. These hiking spots also have campsites so they’re also amenable to family-based activities.
It isn’t only the wines that vie for the tourists’ attention in Napa Valley – there are other amazing liquids for you to enjoy! The beautiful Lake Berryessa is the largest lake in the Napa County, shimmering just east of the Napa Valley. One of the largest bodies of water in California, the Lake Berryessa offers opportunities for water fun including swimming, kayaking, fishing, jet-skiing, and boating. You can also use the services of boat, houseboat, and jet-ski rentals, or you may want to camp out by the lake. After a hike, bike, or a stroll through the vineyards under the searing summer sun, the Lake Berryessa is the perfect place to cool down!
If golf is your passion, hit the greens at one of several courses in the Wine Country. There are a handful of world-class 18-hole, 72-par golf courses – vast, verdant, and situated against the hills and valleys. For a golf enthusiast, these golf clubs are your oyster, and a refuge from daily stress.
And speaking of a refuge, you may want a better way to escape the hullabaloo on the Napa Valley grounds – you can do that by spending a glorious trip up in the air. Yes, up in the air! Riding on a hot air balloon over the Napa Valley is not just a fun experience but also a wonderful retreat for some peace and quiet. You will also see spectacular views simply unavailable on the ground. This is one of your must-do outdoors activities while enjoying your Wine Country tours. Balloons Above the Valley (BATV) can make this trip a reality for you. We assure you of an unforgettable, safe, and fun sunrise morning hot air balloon flights over the Napa Valley.
A benefit of hot air ballooning over the beautiful Napa Valley is that you can do it in any season. Riding on a hot air balloon gives you a bird’s-eye view of the natural beauty, no matter the season (or because of it).
In the summer, you can see neat, verdant rows of grapevines, and clusters of trees and shrubs that dot along the valley and lush hills. During the autumn season, colors change as the Valley boasts of wonderful warm hues of red, yellow, and orange from the trees and vineyards. This is the time when the grapes have just ripened and are ready for harvesting. In the winter and spring, you’ll be astounded by the emerald greens from the hills and the brilliant yellows from the wild mustard flowers. These blooms proliferate and take center stage while the vines are in their dormant state.
Apart from the spectacular hot air balloon rides, Balloons Above the Valley also offers you other treats such as pre-flight breakfasts to wake up your senses as well as exquisite seasonal post-flight brunches while you and your friends reminisce about the wonderful flight you just had.
BATV also offers complete packages that include a tour at the vineyards (on the ground) as well as wineries, a limo service and continental breakfast (and a mimosa), an opportunity to pose pictures near the Golden Gate Bridge, picnic-style lunches, and so much more. We also accommodate group tours, exclusive and private flights as well as post-flight brunches, and also proposals and weddings. Contact us and we will assist you in booking your reservations.
We also take pride in our customer service. Our balloon flight crew is professional and experienced, so you’re guaranteed a safe flight. Our office staff and crew are warm, friendly, and accommodating.
