Bike Rides or "Sip N' Cycle"
Owners of Orchard homes enjoy complimentary bike rentals on a first-come, first-served basis. Stop in and we will provide you with maps so you can explore the Carneros region, and you can even turn it into your very own sip n' cycle by popping into some of our neighboring wineries. If you prefer, guided Sip N' Cycle tours are a fun and unique way to experience Wine Country. Each tour can be customized to include a hike into the hills, a stop or two at various wineries, and varying degrees of riding difficulty. The tour guide will provide intriguing information about the Valley, bring you up to speed on wine jargon, and give additional facts about the area's history. The price is typically about $125 per person for a full-day tour including lunch. We suggest Getaway Adventures, (www.getawayadventures.com) or Napa Valley Bike Tours (www.napavalleybiketours.com).
Hot Air Balloon Rides
There is no better way to capture the beauty of Carneros than to fly right over it! Early morning hot air balloon flights are the perfect way to start your day. You will be picked up from your Orchard home (between 6 and 8 a.m. depending on the time of year), taken for an hour flight over the Valley, then served a champagne brunch before your return to The Orchard. The price is around $210 per person. Visit www.balloonrides.com for more information.
