Flying high above the northern part of Napa Valley, we drift over scenic Calistoga with views of the Old Faithful Geyser, Palisades Cliffs, Mount St Helena, and acres of great vineyards. See world renowned Chateau Montelena, Clos Pegase, Sterling Winery, and Castello di Amorosa like never before. Enjoy Champagne, an African safari, or even a horseback ride after your hour long flight. Calistoga has shops, spas, and wine tasting right downtown!
