Waitomo Caves

Water and time have worked together to produce a magical underground labyrinth, hidden beneath the rolling hills of the lush Waitomo region.

The countless adventures offered at the Waitomo Caves range from idyllic underground boat rides through to awesome adrenalin fests. Cruise or walk through mysterious caves, lit up by nothing but glowworms, or climb, abseil and black-water raft down underground tunnels and streams. Whichever way you go about it, you’ll see some pretty special stuff along the way. If heights, confined dark spaces and dripping stalactites aren’t your thing, then perhaps the rainforest walk among stunning rock formations is.
