Black Odyssey, a world first in technical caving adventures, launches on December 1 with The Legendary Black Water Rafting Company, part of Tourism Holdings Ltd (thl) at New Zealand’s famous Waitomo Caves.
For the first time ever, adrenaline junkies and those looking for an extreme challenge can push themselves to new heights with this dry caving experience. Different technical caving techniques are used to complete this underground journey that will test your limits.
The Black Odyssey is a four hour adventure led by expert guides from The Legendary Black Water Rafting Company who have over 25 years of caving experience, taking travellers through some of the most hidden parts of the extraordinary Ruakuri Cave.
Travellers will get to face their fears with extreme traversing and mind-blowing heights as they edge across bridges elevated above roaring streams, spider-walk through ancient rift passages and challenge themselves with technical high rope work, abseiling and flying foxes.
Tourism Holdings Limited (thl) CEO, Grant Webster, says Black Odyssey is a welcome addition to the established portfolio of tours offered by The Legendary Black Water Rafting Company.
“Waitomo has long been a must-visit destination for both national and international travellers thanks to the quality of activities on offer like our world renowned The Legendary Black Water Rafting Co and Waitomo Glowworm Caves tours.
“We are confident the Black Odyssey will appeal to both local and international travellers and I look forward to seeing visitors enjoying this fantastic new extreme caving adventure.” says Grant Webster.
The Black Odyssey will be competitively priced at $175 per person, with tours running twice daily at 9am and 2pm.
The Legendary Black Water Rafting Company also offers the original in black water rafting, the Black Labyrinth and the big caving adventure Black Abyss, complete with abseils, flying fox and tubing.
