Keystone is centrally located in the Black Hills, which makes us the perfect base for all your family’s adventures. If you’re looking for a thrill that’s a little out of the ordinary while you’re here, look no further than Black Hills Helicopters.
Most of us only consider what activities we can do on the ground, whether that’s visiting one of Keystone’s awesome attractions, hitting the hiking trail, or relaxing on a patio with a cup of coffee. What you might not realize is you can also explore Keystone from the air — and see the world from a whole new perspective.
Black Hills Helicopters offers a range of tours to fit every budget and vacation itinerary. Their Iron Mountain tour is the shortest at only 15 minutes long, but you’ll have the chance to see Mount Rushmore in all its glory. Fly by and wave at the presidents while you experience this national treasure from a unique vantage point. If you have more time, their Sylvan Lake tour is a great way to see some of the Black Hills’ most prized gems, including Sylvan Lake and Black Elk Peak.
