HOT AIR BALLOON LAUNCH SITES


We offer three different hot air balloon launch sites; more than any other hot air balloon company. We choose where to launch based on the weather on the morning of the flight. Our pilots are up prior to check-in, scouting which hot air balloon launch site is most appropriate for a safe launch. Visibility (fog) is the number one weather condition that is being scouted. We will not know the exact hot air balloon launch site until passenger check-in because fog is so unpredictable. At the time of check-in, the launch decision will be made and relayed to the passengers. Based on prior years’ averages, we fly 80% from Yountville and 20% from Northern Valley.  Please read each balloon launch site description, each hot air balloon launch site offers a unique scenic adventure balloon ride.

NVAloft siteHot air balloon passengers meet at V-Marketplace in the center of town and out of the cool morning weather. We launch from the adjacent lot on clear mornings, which is on average 75% of flight days. The Town of Yountville, renowned for its world-class restaurants and award-winning chefs, has earned the unofficial title of ‘Culinary Capital of the Napa Valley. Offering an array of cuisines, from French, Italian, Caribbean, Bistro, and California Cuisine to down-home comfort food, fine dining, and unmatched ambiance are yours to discover in Yountville. Located within walking distance of the Town’s well-appointed hotels, are small luxury inns, premium wineries, activities, and shopping. In 1999 the area around Yountville was approved an American Viticultural Area (AVA), a unique area for growing grapes. Its boundaries were primarily established by those of the other existing or proposed AVA’s in the large Napa Valley AVA-Oak Knoll district on the south, Oakville on the north, Stags Leap District on the east, and Mount Veeder on the west. The Town of Yountville takes its name from George C. Yount (its founding father), who had a large land grant in the Napa Valley and who was the first to plant grapes there.

NVAloft site

We are the only hot air balloon company that offers a Northern Valley hot air balloon flight. If Yountville is fogged in for hot air ballooning we shuttle passengers 30 minutes to the north-eastern hillside above Napa Valley where lies a hidden gem, Pope Valley, producing premium wines from Napa Valley’s winding picturesque fields, undulating vineyards, and oak-studded hills. One gets the feeling of being transported back in time heading northeast away from the Silverado Trail. The goal is not just to provide an escape from the rest of the Valley but to actually make you forget there is anywhere else at all. As you can tell Pope Valley is the true, authentic “Old Napa” that so many people come to in search of. Like all good things, it takes a bit of time and a willingness to step away from where everyone is headed in order to find it, but when you do, the results are all you imagined and more. Pope Valley is our backup plan when it’s too foggy on Napa Valley’s floor, which occurs about 20% of flight days. Pope Valley Balloon launch site but well worth it, as reviewed in this article.

Why A Champagne Toast, You Ask?


Champagne Brunch

Traditionally, each time a hot air balloon lands, champagne is shared. This, you may have known, but you may not know how this tradition came to be. It is said that back in the day local farmers believed that hot air balloons that were landing in their fields may have been dragons descending from the skies. To soothe the farmers’ fears and make peace, the hot air balloon pilots would share a bottle of champagne with the farmers whose land they have disturbed.
