Guests will experience an exciting tour of Napa Valley among the clouds. The experience will begin upon arrival where guests are greeted with pre-flight coffee, teas, juice, pastries, and fruit. After a brief pilot orientation, guests are taken to the launch site. Upon arrival at our launch site guests are greeted by a bustle of activity, the hum of the inflator fans, the lively colors of our state-of-the-art balloons and the roar of the burners. Then… it’s lift off!
Burners roar and then silence. Gently, the balloon lifts into the early morning breeze that ushers guests above corridors of grapes and between the mountains of one of the most magnificent valleys on Earth. As they drift along there is no movement of air, for they have become the wind. Above it all, the experienced and knowledgeable pilot and host will welcome questions and serve as the guide for points of local interest and the Valley’s extraordinary beauty. After the tour guests will celebrate with a toast of Napa Valley’s finest sparkling wines and breakfast at Vintner's Lakeside Grill.
