This is one of the things everyone should do at least once. This was my fourth time and this company is one of the BEST! You do need to get up early, but it is well worth it! I am actually afraid of heights and...More
As someone who is afraid of heights I though this would be a bad experience. Instead it was one of those things that will stay with me for the rest of my life. Seeing the sun coming up, experiencing the beauty of the vineyards from...More
Have been to Napa many times before and so glad I finally did this. The day started a little early (had to meet at 5:15 am due to weather) but coffee and pastries were waiting for us. We then headed to the alternative launching site...More

In the Napa Valley it is safest to fly the hot air balloons in the earlier hours of the morning, when both temperatures and wind speeds are appropriate for flight; you will find that hot air balloon companies in this area will fly around sunrise. Meeting times can vary, but for the large part of the summer we meet at 5:30am.
