In addition, we have more hot air balloon launch site options in Napa Valley, and we provide hot air balloon baskets that carry fewer passengers than competitors, which gives our passengers an open atmosphere feel to enjoy the stunning views on their balloon ride. Our FAA certified hot air balloon pilots are among the most experienced in the world with extensive knowledge of ballooning over Napa Valley. Their knowledge and passion for hot air ballooning make them the perfect captain to take your balloon adventure to great heights.OPEN ATMOSPHERE RIDING EXPERIENCEUnder loaded 8-12 passenger hot air balloon baskets, unlike 16-24 with competitors.
ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productOn most days, we launch from the historic grounds of the V Marketplace, Vintage 1870, in the heart of Yountville–a quaint rural village near the mid-point of the Napa Valley. As we rise above the valley floor, panoramic views open up of the Napa Valley Wine growing region. To the north the majestic Mt. St. Helena, to the west the Mayacamas Mt. Range, and the east the sculptured terrain of the Vaca Range. With favorable winds aloft the balloons can climb to higher altitudes where we may catch a glimpse of the San Francisco skyline and even the majestic Sierras to the east. On Foggy mornings in Yountville, we have exclusive launch options located in Pope Valley, and Paradisa Valley.Pass By: Mount Saint Helena, California
