Morning sunlight enhances the beauty of the Napa Valley Wine Country
Your adventure begins just after sunrise, between 6 AM and 7:30 AM, when hot air ballooning flight conditions are best and the morning sunlight enhances the natural beauty of the famous Napa Valley, CA. We generally meet at the Railroad Depot on Lincoln Avenue in Calistoga, CA, and take off near by. Enjoy the exciting experience of watching the crew inflate the balloon!
Floating at the gentle speed of the wind creates an amazing feeling of calm
The Calistoga Hot Air Balloon of Napa Valley crew inflates the balloon to 70%, then with burners add hot air to get it standing upright. When instructed, you and your fellow passengers hop into the hot air balloon's large wicker basket. The crew makes final preparations while your pilot gives you a pre-flight safety briefing. Once everyone is secured and the hot air balloon is ready to go, you begin your gentle ascent above California’s Napa Valley in a hot air balloon. Since you are moving at the exact same speed as the wind, it is amazingly calm and the experience can be likened to taking an escalator a few thousand feet up into the heavens.
Celebrate your journey with an après-flight champagne breakfast at Solage Calistoga
After about an hour of floating and enjoying the breathtaking views of the Napa Valley, CA Wine Country, the hot air balloon will be navigated to a safe landing zone. Touching down is about as gentle as the take off, and once you are on the ground the crew will quickly begin to dismantle the hot air balloon. After everything is packed up, your ballooning party is driven down the road to Solage Calistoga for a champagne breakfast.
A magical journey you will never forget
Once you have experienced your first hot air balloon ascent, you will raise your eyes skyward, anticipating the next time you get to float into the wild blue yonder in a hot air balloon over Napa Valley, CA.

Ballooning is an outdoor activity, so dress accordingly. Layered Clothing, slacks or casual pants/shorts and comfortable closed-toe walking shoes are preferred dress. The morning may be chilly, but it warms up quickly and it is always warmer in the balloon than on the ground. We recommend a cap or hat to protect heads from radiant heat.
Definitely bring a camera to capture great photos in the early morning light!
