Itinerary

Your Napa Valley hot-air balloon ride starts early in the morning at Domaine Chandon. Upon arrival, enjoy a light pre-flight snack of coffee, tea, orange juice, and pastries.

Then, head to the launch field to join your hot-air balloon and pilot. After a short safety briefing, you board and set off on your hot-air balloon adventure

As you fly, take in sights of Napa’s rolling hills, estates, and wineries, as well as the sunrise.

Once your flight ends, enjoy a buffet breakfast with sparkling wine before your guided tour ends.

This balloon-ride experience in Napa ends early enough that you can winery hop afterward if you choose (own expense).

Overview

Napa Valley’s rolling hills, expansive vineyards, and elegant estates make for a stunning sight to see; however, it’s easy to overlook the scenery while popping in and out of wineries. This hot-air balloon ride from Domaine Chandon allows you to take in views of Napa from the air, while leaving time for winery visits on your own afterward. This hot-air balloon tour comes with pre-flight snacks and a buffet breakfast.

Highlights
  • See Napa Valley from the sky on a hot-air balloon ride 
  • Enjoy a pre-flight snack and post-flight buffet breakfast
  • See the sunrise in the Napa Valley from the sky
  • Take home an in-flight photo as a souvenir

Not quite as expected

Due to fog we were not able to fly over Napa Valley. Instead, we flew over cul de sacs and some farms. Ehh.. not so picturesque, but of course better safe than sorry. The fog is obviously totally out of their control. The brunch was...More

This was our first hot air balloon ride. We sailed with Bob Swanson who was a fantastic pilot. We met at Domain Chandon at 5.30am and were welcomed with coffee, tea, and pastries. After being provided with the rules and regulations and what to expect,...More

I believe we had to be there for 5:30am. We were airborne around 6:15ish I guess, and were done about 8/8:30am. We left there and drove to St. Helena to a winery that opened at 9am and we had just arrived.
