What you can expect

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.
