Escape... your daily routine in a hot air balloon!
Your hot air balloon escape awaits you over the beautiful Temecula Valley Wine Country in Southern California. Experience peace and serenity while you drift above vineyards as the sun rises over the mountains. Take flight with the birds and observe wildlife marveling at the sight of a beautiful hot air balloon floating overhead. See lakes, citrus groves, wineries and estate homes from your unparalleled view in the air. Sunrise hot air balloon rides are offered daily, weather permitting, all year long.
We will meet your party at Europa Village winery conveniently located off Rancho California Road in Temecula. Meeting times vary with the season from 5:30-6:30 a.m. Your pilot will check your group in and take your payment. While waiting, enjoy a cup of hot coffee, before heading to the launch field. Restrooms and ample parking are available for your convenience.
Your hot air balloon adventure begins at sunrise as cold air inflates your majestic seven-story hot air balloon. We invite you to participate or sit back and observe the process. Our certified commercial pilot will navigate the hot air balloon flight with your safety and enjoyment in mind. During your balloon ride the pilot will also act as your “tour guide” identifying local points of interest such as Pechanga Resort & Casino, Lake Skinner, Old Town Temecula and the numerous Temecula Valley wineries that dot the landscape. The pilot communicates throughout the entire hot air balloon excursion with trained ground personnel. The crew will follow the hot air balloon and will assist with your landing.
Once back on the ground, we will transport you back to Europa Village winery. We will then toast your successful hot air balloon flight and new status as “Aeronaut” with our private label “La Scappatella” champagne, orange juice, mimosas and continental breakfast served picnic style on the beautiful grounds of the winery. If you are celebrating a special occasion, be sure to notify us so that we can help you celebrate! Prior to leaving each guest will receive a souvenir certificate of flight and discount card for wine tasting, and 20% off a purchase of our private label "La Scappatella" champagne.
