Whether you’re the rugged countryside type or you enjoy a gentle stroll through a farmer's market, the Napa Valley is the perfect place to enjoy the great outdoors. Here are some ways to experience the active side to Napa Valley:

Cycle through the valley by renting a bike or join a bike tour with Napa Valley Bike Tours or Napa Valley Velo.

Hike our beautiful parks and trails that feature miles of trails along riverbeds, through redwoods and high into the mountains for a view of the valley you can’t get anywhere else. Try a guided hike (followed by wine tasting and food!) with Active Wine Adventures.

Kayak or Stand Up Paddleboard on the Napa River in downtown Napa with Getaway Adventures and Enjoy Napa Valley.

Tour the Napa River without lifting a finger (or paddle). Relax, and let Wombat Charters or Napa Valley Gondola do the work for you.

Take in an outdoor concert. Enjoy live music in a variety of gorgeous venues from late spring through autumn.

Ride high in a hot air balloon overlooking the valley. See the valley from this unique perspective by riding with Napa Valley Aloft or Balloons Above the Valley.

Taste your way through Napa Valley’s farmers’ markets. Munch on local bites while browsing local artisanal goods.

Stroll the Art Walks in downtown Napa and Yountville. Yountville has more than 25 sculptures (some are even for sale) and Downtown Napa has 15 located all over town. The Rail Arts District in Downtown Napa prominently showcases striking murals from selected global artists.

Jet ski at Lake Berryessa or go boating, water skiing, wake-boarding, or tubing, plus there are quiet coves for kayaking, swimming and fishing.

Tee up at one of our amazing golf courses like at the beautiful Chardonnay Golf Club or Silverado Resort & Spa.


Now go outside and explore the active side to Napa Valley!
