Western Horizons Hot Air Balloons offers a unique adventure and an opportunity to experience the amazing natural beauty of the Black Hills from an exciting perspective. Nestled in the Southern Black Hills of South Dakota, historic Hot Springs and the surrounding area offers spectacular views unlike any other.
Our typical flight offers the opportunity to view the magnificent sunrise in the Eastern sky and experience stunning panoramic views of the Southern Black Hills and the expansive prairie of Western South Dakota. On our flights, we frequently see deer, wild turkeys, eagles, waterfowl, antelope, and other wildlife. Upon safely landing, enjoy a celebratory toast with the post-flight refreshments and a personalized flight certificate to end your memorable adventure.
We are able to offer flights for individuals, couples, and even small families. Our goal is to offer a private, personal, and unique experience that you will remember and cherish for years to come. A small, intimate flight is the perfect opportunity to help you create lasting memories. Whether it is an unforgettable date with that special someone, a magical wedding proposal, a monumental wedding anniversary, or a magnificent adventure to create family memories that will last a lifetime, we are happy to work with you to create your perfect experience.
The size of our equipment allows us to carry a maximum passenger load of approximately 500 pounds. Our typical flight lasts around 1-hour (+/- 15 minutes). The entire experience from pre-flight set-up to post flight refreshments can last from 2 to 3 hours.
After your flight, we encourage you to visit the Mammoth Site, swim in the natural mineral springs at Evans Plunge, visit nearby Wind Cave National Park, play a round of golf at the Southern Hills Golf Course, or visit the Wild Horse Sanctuary. We encourage you to experience all that the Hot Springs area has to offer. Our Chamber of Commerce is here to serve you and welcomes your inquiries about our town. www.hotsprings-sd.com
