New Zealand Cave Adventures

New Zealand's Waitomo Caves region is famous thanks to the Waitomo glow-worm caves, the superb stalactites and stalagmites along with the many other adventures that await in this subterranean wonderland.  Waitomo Adventure tours include the breathtaking Lost World where you are able to abseil into a wondrous cavern.

There are a number of other adventures that allow you to explore these subterranean caves, caverns and extraordinary underwater streams.  There are many different options available so, no matter how much of a thrill seeker or relaxed you are, there's something perfect to suit your preferences, age and skill level.  The Haggas Honking Holes are ideal for a rush while the St Benedicts Caverns are better suited for a more gentle trip.  

The most spectacular New Zealand caving adventures can be enjoyed in this Waitomo Caves area and, no matter which one you enjoy, it will most certainly prove memorable.  The Waitomo glow worm caves are located just 2 hours to the south of the bustling city of Auckland.  If you are in Hamilton, it will take just 1 hour of southbound travelling whereas Rotorua is just 2 hours to the east.  No matter where you live or choose to vacation in this area, the caves will be easy to reach.  Accessibility makes it an extremely popular activity for locals and holidaymakers alike.  The local accommodation in Waitomo also makes it easy for families, groups of travellers and visitors on corporate trips to enjoy an extended visit to this tourist hotspot.

Apart from the caving activities, there are other great things to do in the area including blackwater rafting, tubing and Lost World abseiling adventure tours.  Our exceptional reputation for safety by our experienced and dedicated Waitomo Adventures team perfectly compliments our strong commitment to proper training and infrastructure.  Our Waitomo Adventure guides play a large role in defining and upholding industry standards due to their helpful, fun and focussed professionalism.
