If you're keen to try black water rafting through caves covered in twinkling glowworms, then Hamilton - Waikato is the place to do it.

The Waitomo Caves is a labyrinth of underground sinkholes, cascading rivers and glowworm caves created over thousands of years. Lying under rolling green farmland, this is the perfect caving system for the more adventurous to try black water rafting. Black water rafting involves swimming, wading and riding atop small black rubber tubes. Other tours include abseiling deep into the caves or ziplining through the underground passageways. Enjoy spotting stalagmites and stalactites, as well as interesting natural rock sculptures as you adventure through the darkness.
