Pura Vida Adventures is excited to be offering Hunger Games Tours this year due to the high demand and request from our past clients.
“The reason we are getting such a high demand for Hunger Games Tours is two fold explains,” Joe Moerschbaecher, owner of Pura Vida Adventures. “We have been running similar tours to the Hunger Games Tours for over 6 years and our survival courses which have been very popular even before the Hunger Games existed are becoming more popular because fans are realizing many of the skills we teach in these courses are the same as those important for survival in the movie.”
Pura Vida adventures has designed two seperate tours specifically for Hunger Games fans. The first trip visits the areas of Dupont State Forest where Hunger Games was filmed. This tour provides participants with a behind the scenes look at the forest and natural surroundings that provided the setting for the Hunger Games.
These canyoneering trips do not include ropes and are primarily hiking program with some swimming and rock scrambling added in.
The Full day Dupont Hunger Games tour is $100 a person and lasts 6 hours. It includes visits to and insight regarding 5 major areas where filming took place as well as visiting 4 major waterfalls and two incredible secret hideout in Dupont.
Hunger Games Survival Schools. ($150 a person 7-8 hours in length).
Learn from your experienced survival guide, Joe Moerschbaecher as he teaches you the survival skills necessary to survive the Hunger Games. This tour focuses primarily on the non-violent survival skills including fire and shelter building, knot tying, snares, off trail travel, and navigation. After the skills are taught, tributes will be paired in groups of two to practice the skills on their own, and be evaluated for their power rankings in these survival areas. During this school, tributes will visit two areas where major filming was done.
