Hot-Air Balloon & Self-Guided Bike Tour

TOUR OVERVIEW

Two of Napa Valley’s most invigorating sensory experiences are combined here in one incredible tour package that promises to be the most unforgettable day of your wine country trip!

You’ll begin your morning sipping coffee and admiring the inflating kaleidoscope of colors as your flight crew prepares your balloon for an airborne adventure unlike any other. As you soar above the vineyards, you’ll marvel at the quiet stillness of this form of flight – punctuated by the thrilling blast of the burner.

After your flight, your adventure will continue on two wheels with Napa Valley Bike Tours with a Self-Guided Bike Tour where you’ll get to ride at your own pace and choose how many and which wineries to visit. Your Self-Guided Bike Tour comprises everything you need to pull off the perfect day on your own – including a delicious box picnic lunch delivered to a winery along your route and wine purchase pickup service so your bottled treasures will be waiting for you back in Yountville when you finish your ride.

You’ll experience the best of Napa Valley… By AIR and by LAND! There aren’t many things to do in Napa Valley we can think of that would come close to topping this unique adventure!
