New Zealand's prettiest cave: Imagine a huge underground chamber 100m long and 40m high - just bristling with stalactites; stalagmites; flowstone and all manner of wonderful natural creations.

You gain access down a 65m shaft in two abseils. Once down the group makes its way along connecting passages until suddenly you've arrived. The main chamber is fabulous and the best part is yet to come.

Clip onto a zip line that will zing you across the chamber. After that, it's walking and clambering past even more unusual formations until reaching the hobbit hole exit stair.
Pop out a round door right in the side of a hill and back into sunlight. Waitomo Adventures Ltd is Waitomo's leading independent adventure operator and remains family owned.
