The Deal

  • $175 for a Hot-Air Balloon Ride and Champagne Brunch for One (Up to $235 Value)

Roughly 30 minutes before the day’s scheduled sunrise, Up & Away’s hot-air balloons inflate and depart from Sonoma County Airport for 60-minute rides over Sonoma’s scenic landscapes. Following the ride, passengers dine on a brunch of handmade quiche, chocolate-covered strawberries, coffee cake, fruits, champagne, and more. To commemorate the event, guests also receive a personalized flight certificate. See the FAQs for more information.

Up & Away Ballooning

As sure as the sun emerges from Sonoma’s horizon each morning, passengers will soar the skies in Up & Away Ballooning’s vibrantly colored hot-air balloons to view it. These sunrise rides have touched the clouds for nearly 15 years, helmed by FAA-certified pilots who are well versed in weather patterns and let the winds guide the aircrafts at varying altitudes. Depending on how high you journey, you might soak in epic views of the Pacific Ocean, Napa Valley, or San Francisco. Passengers gaze down upon the world in awe in groups of 6, 9, or 14, and conclude their rides with a brunch of champagne, quiche, and bread that has been toasted by the sun on the pilot’s outstretched hands.
