Crazy Creek Air Adventures has been providing unique, exhilarating adventure ride experiences for over 40 years. We launch from our home at the Middletown Gliderport, in Lake County, situated in the greater Napa Valley Wine Country.Incredible views and colorful rural vistas showcase vineyards, the largest natural fresh water lake in California, geothermal steam clouds produced by nearby geysers, and even the remnants of an ancient volcano.Soar above it all in a sleek glider plane. Flying conditions are superb year-round. Get away from it all as you soar high above the panoramic scenery, with a breathtaking view few others can enjoy. It’s the Adventure of a Lifetime, something you will be talking about for years to come! Call for reservations.

Wow, we are still in the clouds from our glider rides. Definitely ask for the wild ride. Loved that one of the pilots was a woman. Very save and experienced pilots. More exciting than a hot air balloon ride (though the one on Lake Tahoe is exceptional). More relaxing than a helicopter flight. Much better views and quieter than a... More

Loved the drive from Napa. Very friendly staff. A great experience to add to our wine tasting trip. My wife, who is quite sensitive to motion sickness, did not feel well for parts of the trip and for an hour or so afterward, but even she loved it! Highly recommended, unless you are prone to motion sickness.

I was looking for something to do different for my birthday. Crazy Creek gliders was the answer. Connie took good care of us. Beautiful scenery and the glider flight was so much fun. I would recommend it and we are planning to go again soon. Plus it is more fun than hot air balloon ride. Thanks for everything.....

This was a SUPERB experience. Connie and Jim were so kind and very welcoming. I came here after my hot air balloon ride was canceled due to fog. Wow, am I happy there was fog that morning! I have been skydiving and zip lining several times in various locations and this was the best of all worlds! Calm and serene... More

I flew gliders at Crazy Creek for years before moving to glider nirvana -- Minden, Nv. The scenery is great, the souring is great, particularly in the spring and summer, and you will never meet nicer people than the Indrebros. Even if you don't want to go for a ride, just go enjoy the friendly atmosphere of a first class... More

My Dad has always wanted to go for a glider ride. So he asked for this for his birthday. I liked the location and the info I had read about Crazy Creek on line and so booked a reservation. He absolutely loved doing this and has continued to tell everyone he knows about his flight. It has fulfilled this Dream.... More

I often have guests staying at my B&B, Backyard Garden Oasis, who go on a glider ride. Every one comes back telling me of their great experience and simply exuding enthusiasm. What a great opportunity to early an eagle-eyed view of Northern California Wine Country

Gliding was something I've wanted to do for a long time, but it took a suggestion from my wife to actually follow through on this desire. She wanted something "different" for her birthday and her powered glider ride in Cabo triggered a wish to do something similar. Following up on this suggestion, I found Crazy Creek A A by a... More

First, my expectations for this was set pretty high. As somewhat of an adrenaline junkie, I like trying thing that make some be go "say what!". So when I told my friends that we going gliding, I got the "say what" from some of them. Second, all my expectations for this were greatly exceeded. You will not find better hosts... More
