Napa Valley Balloons, Inc.


The Experience

The award winning Napa Valley Balloons, Inc. has been flying hot air balloons over the Napa Valley for over 31 years. We have FAA certified pilots and aircraft, a professional staff and an outstanding safety record with thousands of satisfied adventurers experiencing the pleasure of hot air ballooning with Napa Valley Balloons, Inc. every year.


We welcome you at our pre-dawn check-in with coffee, an assortment of teas and pastries, whole fruit and juice. After a brief pilot orientation you are taken to our launch site.

Upon arrival at our launch site you are greeted by a bustle of activity. The hum of the inflator fans, the lively colors of our state-of-the-art balloons and the roar of the burners. Our well trained and skilled staff ensures a safe and comfortable launch.

Lift Off!

Burners roar and then silence. Gently, the balloon lifts into the early morning breeze that peacefully carries you above corridors of grapes and between the mountains of one of the most magnificent valleys on Earth. As you drift along you feel no wind for you have become the wind.

From tree tops to magnificent panoramic views, your experienced and knowledgeable pilot will act as your guide and welcomes questions from you and fellow adventurers pointing out local points of interest and the Valley’s extraordinary beauty.

Napa Valley Balloons, Inc, boasts the newest, most beautiful hot air balloons in the Napa Valley. Our fleet ranges in balloon sizes allowing us to comfortably accommodate groups of anywhere from 2 to 20 passengers per balloon.

Enchantment, romance, and excitement fill every colorful moment of this graceful adventure. The flight will last an hour but the memories will last a lifetime. Your first impulse after a gentle touch down is to say, “Let’s do it again!”.

One recent passenger said it best, “I suppose the only criticism I have is that maybe there should be a warning on the side of the basket... that ballooning can become addictive!”

Post Flight

Once earthbound again, your flight is celebrated with Napa Valley’s finest sparkling wines at Domaine Chandon’s Etoile restaurant. Our delicious american style post-flight breakfast will fill you up and prepare you for the rest of your day’s adventure.
