Experience the majestic 'Lost World' without abseiling!
As you walk down to the starting point of your 3-hour cave tour, prepare yourself for a breathtaking adventure. The Lost World is a deep and spectacular cavern in the Waitomo Caves area. It’s well known for its dramatic 100m abseil and adventure caving activities.
On this more-gentle option, there is no abseiling. You access 'Lost World' via an adjacent sinkhole known as 'The Window'. An exposed stairway clings to the side of an underground cliff and leads you into the 'Lost World' abyss. Marvel at the breathtaking views that are to be enjoyed from the viewing platform high upon the cave wall.
From here zip-lines in the roof of the cavern take you along through upper levels of the cave system before you make your way along rock ledges en route to the surface.
Embrace the beauty of Waitomo's caves on this spectacular tour!

Fitness Test: If the guide(s) on the day have any doubt about a client’s fitness they may ask them to prove it by completing a fitness-test. One quick and simple test we may use is “to step up and down a 20 cm (8 inches) step not less than 45 times in 60 seconds”. We strongly recommend clients complete this test before they book their activity and before they travel to Waitomo. Clients may also be requested to submit to breath-testing for alcohol or other drugs. Where appropriate, guides may at their sole discretion cancel a departure or remove an unsuitable client from a departing trip for any safety-related reason.
Pregnancy: We do not recommend abseiling (rappelling) during the 1st and 3rd trimester due to the need to wear a tight-fitting harness across your waist during the abseil.
All pregnant clients wishing to participate in one of our adventure options must provide a medical certificate from their General Medical Practitioner confirming that they are fit for abseiling (rappelling) and caving
This policy is required for us to comply with the NZ Adventure Safety Regulations.
