Who We Are

Celebrating our 12th year of business, Black Hills Adventure Tours is the premier tour company of South Dakota! We offer upscale experiences at affordable prices and a unique, up-close look at the beautiful Black Hills and the surrounding areas.

Black Hills Adventure Tours was established in 2005 by Carrie Bowers. Carrie is a longtime resident of the Black Hills and was raised in the mountains of British Columbia before moving to Rapid City. She graduated from Black Hills State University with a B.S. Tourism, emphasis: Business and Marketing. She interned for the North Lake Tahoe Resort Association in the Public Relations department. It was during that time that she really began to look at the Outdoor Recreation realm as a way to earn a living while enjoying what she did. After college Carrie worked in the hotel industry and ran a successful Auto Repair business. She has been very active in the Rapid City business community and the tourism industry. Carrie has two children, Logan and Annabelle. Carrie is in her 12th year of business and is enjoying every minute of it!

Black Hills Adventure Tours, LLC holds a permit from the National Forest Service to guide tours on National Forest land.

“Our whole family enjoyed the tour given by Carrie, owner of Black Hills Adventure Tours… She totally catered the day to our interests… She also arranged for our girls to have a one-on-one experience at Reptile Gardens the next day!”
