A new type of themed trip offers to “get lost” in the jungle.

People looking for adventure can now test their determination with a new type of theme trip. The theme in question?
Survival in hostile environments. Travellers are being sent to remote parts of the world and have to find their way out.

If you are a fan of fresh air, addicted to adrenaline and with a strong personality, you are part of the target market! On the other hand, if you fear change and open spaces, if you are afflicted with a list of phobias as long as your arm and if you need all the modern comforts, the trip is probably not for you.

A secret destination kept secret until arrival

The programme is not designed for small children. The proposed places are hostile and offer little reference points: jungle, pole, desert, mountain, wild coast, etc. The idea is to enable people saturated by social networks, and under pressure in the face of the demands of daily life, to disconnect and discover their “inner steel.”

These very special travelers are only able to choose the type of environment they want to explore, but their exact destination is kept secret until they arrive. People who are ready for anything can even rely on the Black Tomato agency’s wheel of a chance decision.

These tourists have to tap into their resources.

If necessary, they follow specific training sessions. They arrive at their destination via a private route and are then given the necessary equipment to make a successful shipment.

Under the remote surveillance of a task force that remains hidden, and thanks to offline navigation technology, these extreme tourists are forced to tap into their resources, intelligence, and survival instincts to reach a series of crossing points. It is possible to register as a group or alone.
