Waitomo Adventures

New Zealand takes caving to the next level. And the most unique, mind-blowing New Zealand caving adventures can be found at Waitomo Caves.

These aren’t your ordinary cave tours.

Waitomo Adventures tours take you into a world apart, where you’ll abseil into incredible caverns, tube through underground water mazes, and explore some of the most fantastic caves in the world.

Get your adrenaline racing with an unforgettable family  adventure.

Waitomo Adventures Activity Options

Lost World 4 Hour

If you’re after an abseil, this is arguably the most spectacular abseil in the world. You’ll descend into the incredible Lost World cavern, free-hanging over a yawning void with weird plants growing on the walls all around.

Once you catch your breath, you’ll start exploring the massive vaults of the Lost World caverns, filled with incredible cave formations and glowworms.

  • Make your way through the unbelievable Lost World caverns, filled with gigantic flowstone formations and enormous caverns.
  • Climb an almighty ladder back to the surface.
  • 4 hours total
