    Imagine; you are floating serenely above the most beautiful place on earth, the Wine Country. Your Nature Walk in the Sky will begin just after dawn. As you sail gently along the wind's highway, spectacular views will delight you. Among the surprises: the Pacific Coast, San Francisco's Skyline, Redwood Forests, Geyser Mountains, the graceful Russian River and lush rolling vineyards OR above Napa Valleys reknowned vineyards. As your gentle giant dances it's way back to earth, celebrate your high spirited adventure with our Scrumptious Champagne Brunch, served in a beautiful wine country setting.

    What does it Feel Like? Hot air balloons are unique from all other forms of flight in that there is no sensation of motion or perception of height. Travelling at heights of 500 to 1500 feet, the feeling is one of peace and tranquility as the earth seems to slowly descend and rotate below you. Within moments after lifting off you become at ease while you effortlessly drift over the treetops and float over the countryside in gentle, panoramic harmony with nature. Safe Personalized Service. You are welcome to participate "hands on" with the set-up, inflation and deflation of your hot air balloon. Our uniformed pilots, all FAA certified instructors, are the most qualified professionals in this region, averaging 25 years experience. The fleet of Cameron Balloons is the newest and safest luxury aircraft available in the world, featuring secure, high sided compartments designed to comfortably hold personalized groups of 4, 6, 8 or 16 passengers. Private flights available for those very special ocassions.

    What's included: The whole experience takes at least 3 to 4 hrs with approximately 1 to 1.5 hrs of actual flight time. We'll meet one hour north of San Francisco, off Hwy. 101 or in Napa Valley. Following the flight enjoy our complementary champagne brunch. Optional Take-a-long picnic lunch for a gourmet's delight at one of the Valley's spectacular Wineries.
