Concierge Corner: Hot Air Ballooning in Napa
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to fly? To follow the birds in flight across the sunrise? To soar hundreds of feet in the air, floating serenely above one of the most beautiful places on earth, in a quiet that allows you to hear the sounds of the valley below? One of the most fun and popular activities booked through the Auberge du Soleil Concierge desk is hot air ballooning above the Napa Valley.
A hot air balloon ride in Napa allows you to explore wine country’s scenic vineyards views that cannot be accessed from the ground. Incredible scenery is brought to you in a way that cannot be surpassed. Float above vibrant colored grapevines and the countless wineries of the Napa Valley. Hot air ballooning has been described as a very serene experience even by those who are afraid of heights.
Start your morning early with a spectacular hot-air balloon ride, as wind conditions are optimal just after sunrise. Feel that you have reached the top of the world, in the safety and comfort of a wicker basket while soaring high above the sky. There is nothing better than ending your ride with a champagne brunch. After your ballooning adventures, return back to Auberge du Soleil to enjoy the rest of your day at the Auberge Spa or poolside at La Plage.
Hot air ballooning has captured the imagination of people everywhere and creates memories that will last a lifetime. Every company offers different launch sites, basket sizes, and brunch options, so it is good to contact the concierge in order to discuss the options available to you.
