Badlands Sunset and Night Sky Adventure
Half the Park is After Dark! Most visitors only see the park by day, but we'll be exploring it before, during and after sunset. A Sunset Tour of the Badlands is the most incredible time to visit the park.
You'll have private transportation, and enthusiastic guide, and an incredible setting in Badlands National Park. Once we arrive the park we'll take you to the best places for seeing animals. Bighorn Sheep, Bison, Deer and Prairie Dogs are not uncommon to be seen during the golden hour.
Going to and learning about different viewpoints throughout the park such as Pinnacles Overlook, or just unpacking out folding chairs and watching the sun go down is what we consider the perfect evening.
Once the sunset show ends, we turn the page and head through the park to a Night Sky Program put on by the park rangers themselves. Telescopes come out as we learn about our place in the universe. Overhead satellites fly by and shooting stars provide special wishes. (But only if you close your eyes)
In a remote location like Badlands National Park, the light pollution is low, which makes it the perfect dark skies location in South Dakota.
Relax and enjoy when mother nature shows off what most don't have a chance to see in one of the worlds most spectacular National Parks.
