Lost World Epic - 7 hrs

One of the best things you can do in this country - Lonely Planet traveller’s guide



Allow 7 hours
Includes Lunch and Dinner

The 100m free-hanging abseil will astound you, but that’s only the beginning.

Make sure you eat your lunch (provided) because you’re going to spend the rest of the day walking, wading and swimming through the cavernous passages of this famous underground system. Generally the ceiling is about 50-80m above you - this cave is big.

Yes you need to be moderately fit (e.g. go bush walking for a day), but the trip is intended for complete novices. No prior experience required – just a penchant for adventure!

See giant fossil oysters and whalebones; giant flowstone (looks like icing sugar running down the walls). Lots of fun & optional challenges - water jumps; climbs and spiders.

Includes an absolutely fantastic glowworm display.
Also includes packed lunch & BBQ dinner.

If you came to NZ looking for top adventure, this is the thing you must do - it's the Best!
