Offering sunrise flights seven days a week, Balloons Over Paso makes it easy to soar above the vineyards just about any time of year (weather permitting). Led by commercially licensed pilots, each flight package lasts roughly 3 – 4 hours in total. Tours start as early as 5:30 AM when the weather is calmest. You’ll spend about an hour in the air, taking in the picturesque views as the sun comes up, before touching down to enjoy breakfast treats and a Champagne toast to commemorate the experience.
