Description

Soak in the spectacular sights of South Dakota's Black Hills National Forest, with its sprawling ranchlands, rugged terrain, and snow-capped mountains. Soar over verdant valleys at sunrise, toasting with a glass of champagne as the landscape unfolds before your eyes.

Arrive at your meeting location in the wee hours of the morning and board your colorful hot air balloon. Feel gravity melt away as you slowly rise more than 1,000 feet (305 m) into the sky, sailing over a blanket of deep emerald green.

Soon the sun begins to rise, illuminating the dark sky with fiery shades of pink, purple, and orange. As the sun spreads its dazzling light over the landscape, gaze out upon views of rolling farmland, glistening ponds, and native wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for sights of antelope, elk, buffalo, and deer that are grazing in the area.

As you continue your ride over lush forests and rocky terrain, toast to these natural wonders with a festive glass of champagne. Catch a glimpse of the presidential faces carved into Mount Rushmore before touching down on solid ground.

We were supposed to stay up for an hour, but was only up for about 30 minutes. The rest of the time was spent watching the team put the balloon away. They should tell you before you buy your tickets.

We have never had the experience of flying in a hot air balloon The day we were supposed to fly was rainy but they were able to accommodate us on the next day. The experience was more than I believed it would be. It is so beautiful and peaceful. The pilot was able to locate some wildlife and dipped down for a closer look. It is an experience I won’t forget and look forward to doing again one day somewhere. It amazes me how the pilot was able to maneuver the balloon by using the winds etc at different levels. The landing was so soft I didnt realize I was on the ground. The entire staff was really nice. Last of all, the champagne finish was the perfect touch. Thank you Black Hills Balloons. You made our day.
