As participants take a close-up look at caves, tour guides teach them about different cave formations and nature preservation. Tours take place rain or shine, no matter the temperature, as caves stay between 52 and 58 degrees year-round. All skill levels are welcome, but customers should be in good physical condition to participate, as the tours involve crawling on hands and knees, maneuvering through enclosed spaces, and climbing over boulders. Customers may meet at the cave site or at Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing's facility located in New Castle, from where a shuttle will transport participants to the cave. The cave is located outside Covington, about 45 minutes from the facility.
Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing
The husband-and-wife duo that runs Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing always dreamed of starting an all-outdoor summer program for kids. In 1990, their dream became a reality when they purchased 500 acres of land in southwest Virginia that was perfect for outdoor adventures. Hills, trees, caves, and a glistening lake set the scene for activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, and caving, though the staff says that its most popular attraction is the 900-foot zipline. Today, the grounds welcome participants young and old; many adult groups travel to the grounds for team-building and leadership events. All of Wilderness Adventure’s programs arm participants with these skills, boosting camper confidence and giving them enough self-esteem to try to singlehandedly bringing back the fanny pack.
