The California Wine Country is the perfect place to enjoy hot air balloon rides. Soar peacefully over lush vineyards. Relax as you gently glide along 500 to 1500 feet above the ground.
On clear days you can see views of the Pacific Ocean, buildings in San Francisco, and wildlife such as rabbits and deer. Hot air ballooning Napa Valley is so much fun!
The flight is typically 60 to 90 minutes in length and is followed by a champagne breakfast. The entire experience usually takes from 3 to 5 hours and will be a memorable adventure. Combine a wine tour of Napa with an unforgettable hot air balloon excursion. If this is something you have never done, you really should try it!
Wear comfortable clothing with closed toed walking shoes and casual pants or shorts. Flights will take off shortly after sunrise. It might be chilly in the early morning, but it will be warmer in the balloon. Layers are recommended for comfort.
You can book a private flight for 2 or join a group of up to 16 passengers on some of the larger balloons.
It is possible to make arrangements to be picked up at a San Francisco hotel and transported to Napa or Sonoma for the hot air balloon flight.
