St Benedicts Caverns, Waitomo
St Benedict’s Caverns are probably the most beautiful example of caves-that-have-it-all that you’ll find in New Zealand. This trip gives you an eagle-eye view of everything - stalactites, stalagmites, flowstone and all manner of natural formations. To get to the main chamber you have to abseil down a 60m shaft (in two separate abseils), then make your way along connecting passages until you emerge at the entrance. Then the fun really starts as you’re clipped onto a flying fox that will zing you part way across the 100m long cavern. A relatively gentle trip for all (minimum age 12), it suits those that want to experience the beauty of the underground world without getting too wet or too physical. And you get to pop out of a Hobbit’s round door at the end!
Prices are in New Zealand Dollars (NZD). The tour is available each day except Christmas and New Year days.
The tour is dry. All you need are comfortable outdoor clothes (not jeans) and long thick socks, everything else is provided.
