Getting high on life in Santa Ynez isn’t always about popping open a bottle of vino… sometimes it's about soaring hundreds of feet in the air!

During this exhilarating experience, you’ll do just that as you take to the morning sky in a hot air balloon. Spend nearly an hour flying over the sprawling vineyards and the more than 100 wineries located in the valley. Sights also include the Transverse Mountain Ranges, the Channel Islands, Lake Cachuma, and several historic towns.

Santa Ynez Valley is a lovely place to enjoy a hot air balloon ride, with light winds and nearly perfect climate for the ballooning year round. You’ll enjoy a flowing, turbulence-free experience that even those traditionally afraid of flying will find soothing and easy to handle. Plus, you’ll be flying with a company that puts safety and fun hand in hand.

Afterwards, you’ll have the chance to toast to your experience while visiting two different boutique wineries. Visits include transportation and tasting fees, so all you have to worry about bringing is your tastebuds! Your guide will also work with you to select wineries that suit your palate, selecting from a variety of popular destinations in the valley. Cheers!
