Waitomo Adventures - Lost World Epic Tour - 7 Hours

Experience the most adventurous and dramatic caving experience in the world with Waitomo Cave's ultimate caving tour!

Highlights

  • The biggest Adventure Caving Activity in New Zealand, run by the same operators since 1987
  • Majestic 100 metre abseil
  • Homemade lunch and BBQ dinner from local suppliers, cooked by your guides. Dietary requirements catered for.
  • Beautiful Glow worm displays throughout the tour, culminating with the magnificent Glow worm chamber
  • Two guides, max 8 clients
  • Free personalised photos

Descend the world's highest commercial abseil into a cave - engulfed by 330 feet of surrealistic beauty.

Once inside, the adventure has only just begun as you plunge into a raging subterranean river and head for the submergence - swimming and climbing through cathedral-sized vaults, jumping and climbing through underground waterfalls and overcoming the cauldron and shin breaker alley on the way.

No experience is required for you to take on the challenge of one of the most special and wild places in the world - a remote wilderness in its natural, pristine state.

Waitomo Adventures are a consistent Certificate of Excellence Winner with Trip Advisor and are ranked the number 1 attraction in the area with a 5-star rating - Come and see for yourself why this is a must-do attraction in an experience that will remain with you forever.

Photography: Personalised photos are provided to clients via internet at no extra charge. No client photography equipment is permitted. Please inquire if you require a private photography tour.

Location: 1227 Waitomo Valley Road, Waitomo

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.

Per Person $595.00

Incredible adventure!

Physically and mentally challenging, but incredible, well-experienced and knowledgeable guides helping us along. At each challenge they were telling you what you needed to do, or where you needed to put your feet, or what to hold onto. We felt safe, and well-supported, and finished the day with a full tummy; incredulous that we had achieved such an amazing adventure! Tips for the girls: take a hair tie if your hair is long, and wear long sleeved polyprops under the wetsuit if you feel the cold.

Epic is an understatement

If there is a tour that you should do, this is it! Very enjoyable, extremely professional team with a great sense of humor and even better service! Due to bad weather the cave was flooded, but I was quickly given a (possibly better) alternative. The tour is a perfect mix between being a good challenge and still remaining very safe, the guides know exactly what they are doing and I never felt at any risk. Absolute highlight of my time in new zealand!

Epic Underground Adventure

Must do - the best adventure that you can have underground - just be sure you're OK with heights, the dark, cold water, eels, and swimming.
