FAQs

  • WHAT SHOULD I WEAR OR BRING ON THE HOT AIR BALOOON FLIGHT?

    Your flight takes off in the early mornings when Napa Valley is cool. Wear layered clothing, with a light sweater or sweatshirt and a jacket depending on the season. It will get warmer so you will want to remove layers as the day progresses. It is recommended that you wear tennis shoes and bring sunglasses and cameras to capture the unrivaled views.
  • IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION?

    Hot air ballooning is a fun adventure for the whole family, even the young one in your crew. The minimum age for ballooning excursions is 8 years old. All children must be able to stand on their own for about one hour. Calistoga Balloons offers a special child rate for kids between the ages of 8 and 12 years old.
