For three to four hours, you will soar over some of the magnificent Napa vineyards: lush and green in the summer, golden russet in the fall. You will also see some of the world-famous Napa wineries. This smooth flight allows all passengers a 360-degree panorama of the area and the other balloons above the valley, a photographer’s dream! The baskets are comfortable and spacious. While aloft, you may also have a chance to see the Old Faithful Geyser of California and Mount St. Helena. After floating through the morning sunshine in one of the Napa Valley Balloons, you will be ready to enjoy the elegant champagne brunch, which is included in the price of your flight.
