Waitomo Caves New Zealand has so many activities in surrounding areas, what better place to holiday!

Famous Waitomo Attractions

Waitomo Glow Worm Grottos, the Ruakuri Cave, the Aranui Cave and the Lost World are all fantastic local attractions. The unique underground limestone formations are one of New Zealand’s most inspiring natural wonders. The Waitomo Caves is a must-see for travellers from overseas and Kiwis alike.

The fascinating Waitomo New Zealand area offers limestone caves, other natural wonders, great walks and the famous black-water rafting. Experience unique glow worms, stunning underground scenery and if you are looking for adrenalin-pumping action activities, you won’t be disappointed. There are many operators that organise trips in Waitomo and through the Waitomo Caves, from surprisingly gentle to absolutely exhilarating.

King Country Brewing Company


King Country Brewing Company is a new business opening late October 2013. A small boutique brewery is being established on a farm 20 mins from the Waitomo Village. Their shop and new bar is located immediately across the road from the park. Visits to the brewery are possible, by arrangement and subject to a guide being available.

Black Water Rafting

Black water rafting takes place underground, in the Waitomo Caves, but it is not at all like white water rafting. Black water rafting involves an inflated rubber inner tube, the kind you would normally find in a car tyre, as a flotation device to take you down river in the dark.

Participants are dressed in wet suits and fitted with inflated inner tubes, which both buffer wearers against sudden upsets on slippery rocks and also keeps them afloat when they go down rapids and over waterfalls in the dark. It’s an experience not to be missed and totally unique to New Zealand. Check out our hot deal for this Waitomo glowworm cave adventure.

Waitomo Caves Adventure Activities

Other fantastic activities in the Waitomo Caves include abseiling and rock climbing. Both are widely available in the Waitomo region and they are excellent choices for natural born adventurers. The feeling you get while abseiling through waterfalls underground or when you rappel 100 metres into the Lost World is hard to imagine. With a wealth of information on local attractions and activities, Waitomo TOP10 Holiday Park can advise and book the trip that is right for you. Check out our special offer for guests to enjoy fantastic black water rafting at a discounted rate.
