Waitomo Cave Activities

It’s what’s underground which is the big attraction in Waitomo: a huge network of caves filled with glowworms. Not only are the caves and its creatures amazing to see, but the different ways to explore them make the experience all the more incredible. I chose to abseil into the caves, obviously with an activity provider – not randomly by myself, and go on a caving adventure. Kitted out with wetsuits, you can go tubing over rapids inside the caves and even jump off a couple of waterfalls. There are heaps of activities in the caves so make sure to explore your options before exploring the caves.
