This 4-hour caving expedition packs a lot! You’ll encounter abseils (often in waterfalls), rock climbs, unique limestone formations and get up close to glowworms while exploring this fantastic cave system. New Zealand’s famous glowworms make an appearance – see them up close & personal.
This ripper of a trip combines the best elements of blackwater rafting with walking, climbing, swimming and tubing through distinctive sections of the spectacular TumuTumu Cave. See awesome cave formations as well as one of the best Glowworm displays in New Zealand.
The abseil (rappel) descent takes around 20 minutes of the total 4 hours required. Abseil slowly alongside your instructor who although on a separate rope provides information, reassurance …and a backup safety tether.
We know the only way to really enjoy Waitomo’s biggest and brightest glowworm show, is slowly. Rushing through will not do justice to such breath-taking spectacle. Take time to let your eyes adapt and you will be rewarded with the soft glow of many of thousands of glowworms.
