$179 for a Hot Air Balloon Ride with Champagne Toast ($360 Value)

After watching the hot air balloon's inflation and soaring over the Sonoma Valley and Hidden Valley amid early morning views of vineyards, rivers, and distant mountains, passengers—who must be 6 years old or older to ride and 21 or older to drink—clink glasses for a toast with their host and pilot, who describes the rich history of hot air balloon flight.

Sonoma Valley Balloons

With its sprawling, emerald vineyards, slate-colored lakes, and winding rivers, the Sonoma Valley seems unfairly intended for birds. However, Sonoma Valley Balloons' FAA-certified balloon pilots with more than 30 years of experience rebelling against gravity of Mother Nature, lifting their hot air crafts from the ground and navigating them along the morning sky's gentle air currents with little sensation of motion and wind. Because of this, passengers have commented that they didn't realize the balloon had lifted off the ground, and that they had no perception of height as there is nothing connecting them to the ground.

As the aerostat soars over the picturesque valley and Russian River with the sight of the Pacific coast to San Francisco Bay, geysers, and giant redwood trees in the distance on clear days, passengers can merely gaze in awe at the views or finally retrieve their long-lost frisbees. All pilots are fully insured and licensed by the California Public Utilities Commission and United States Department of Transportation, ensuring a safe, professional flight.
