Hot Air Balloon Napa Valley Style

A morning ride in one of the iconic Napa Valley balloons will make your visit even more memorable. Drifting gracefully above the beautiful landscape while greeting the morning sun, you and your Valentine will share a truly unique and enjoyable experience. Memories of the incredible view from your hot air balloon Napa Valley, bracketed by the dramatic mountain backdrop, will stay vivid in your mind for many years to come. You’ll enjoy each minute of your hour-long flight as your Balloons Above the Valley professional pilot takes you aloft and brings you softly back to earth at the destination.

And, to make a day of it, you and your partner should choose to add a delightful, chef-prepared champagne brunch at Michelin-awarded C Casa, plus an afternoon wine tasting organized by Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Napa Valley Gondolas

Meandering by gondola through the canals of Venice may be the ultimate romantic bucket-list item, how about an equally romantic cruise along the Napa River? Napa Valley Gondolas offers private cruises aboard authentic Venetian-style gondolas while you share wine, relax, listen to music, and watch the cityscape pass by.
