Full description
Rise above the world-famous Napa Valley on a hot air balloon adventure and be amazed by the beauty of this wine-growing region. Admire the breathtaking views in a small group trip, and take a peak at the stunning Mount Saint Helena.

Start your day early to make the most of the pleasant light and tranquility that follows sunrise. On most mornings, launch from the heart of Yountville, a charming rural village in Napa Valley renowned for its award-winning restaurants and premium wineries.

Check in with your certified pilot, then ascend above the valley floor. Marvel at the panoramic views that soon open up, and gaze at Mount Saint Helena in the Mayacamas Mountains, one of the few mountains in the San Francisco Bay Area to receive snowfall during the winter. With favorable winds, even catch a glimpse of the San Francisco skyline and the spectacular Sierras to the east.

Depending on the wind conditions, float between 1,000 and 3,000 feet (roughly 300 and 900 meters) above the valley floor with your pilot. As you descend to the valley floor at the end of your trip, take in the breathtaking scenery one last time.
