Enjoy a day trip to the Badlands National Park, a 244,000-acre park that holds some of the nation's most breathtaking untouched beauty. You can look for miles and not see a sign of civilization. Water and wind have eroded this area into deep gorges, massive buttes, and colorful pinnacles and spires. It is truly something other-worldly and you won't see anything else like it! 

This 7-hour tour takes you into the Badlands National Park with a knowledgeable guide. You will walk through certain parts of the park, learn the history surrounding it, see and learn about the wildlife, and hear the stories of the dinosaurs who used to call this area home. Hotel pick up and drop off are included as well as lunch! It's appropriate for all ages and is a small tour (12 people maximum) for the best personal experience possible. 
 
Your Mercedes Sprinter Van or luxury SUV will pick you up from your hotel in Rapid City at around 8 am. After an hour ride, you'll arrive in the Badlands and drive through the beautiful park. A little later, you will receive a bagged lunch before starting your adventure walking through some of the areas and asking any questions that you may have. You may see bighorn sheep, bison, mountain lions, lizards and snakes, or a number of other animals! After walking around multiple stops, you'll visit the Visitors Center to walk through the educational displays. After leaving the park, you'll have a 15-minute ride to the Minuteman Missile Visitors Center for a quick stop to learn about America's Cold War History. You'll also get to see the National Historic Site, which is the actual missile site! Another short drive away is Wall Drug where you'll find many souvenirs. You'll be driven back to your hotel and return around 3:30 pm.
