Hot Air Balloon Rides Napa Valley

 The fun begins before daybreak as you journey to the Balloons Above the Valley hot air balloon launch site. There you watch the balloon being inflated as you prepare to board for your safe and thrilling journey above Napa Valley.

As the hot air balloon begins to rise and you greet the sunrise, you and your partner will behold a breathtaking panorama of the Napa Valley landscape as viewed from your ever-changing vantage point. You will drift slowly and quietly toward the prescribed landing area as you marvel at the vineyards, wineries, and picturesque communities framed by mountains to the east and west.

After about a one-hour flight, your experienced and licensed pilot will guide your balloon to a soft and safe landing at the destination. Once you disembark, you and your partner will be energized and ready for your next adventure.
