Founded in 1978, Napa Valley Aloft is one of the original hot air balloon companies of Napa Valley. What raises Aloft above the rest is that our hot air balloon operation is situated at historical V-Marketplace, neighboring award-winning hotels and restaurants located in the town of Yountville. In addition, we have more hot air balloon launch site options in Napa Valley, and we provide hot air balloon baskets that carry fewer passengers than competitors, which gives our passengers an open atmosphere feel to enjoy the stunning views on their balloon ride. Our FAA certified hot air balloon pilots are among the most experienced in the world with extensive knowledge of ballooning over Napa Valley. Their knowledge and passion for hot air ballooning make them the perfect captain to take your balloon adventure to great heights.OPEN ATMOSPHERE RIDING EXPERIENCEUnder loaded 8-12 passenger hot air balloon baskets, unlike 16-24 with competitors.
