Black Labyrinth

Black Labyrinth


​​​​​​​​​​​This is the original Waitomo subterranean adventure that will have you climbing, black water tubing, leaping, through Ruakuri Cave.

Over three hours you'll take leaps of faith over cascading waterfalls and float serenely down an underground river as you enjoy the glowworm show on the vaulted limestone galleries up above.

Your journey concludes when you emerge into the sunlight of the Waitomo forest.

Waitomo is always amazing, especially in winter. A black water rafting tour is the perfect rainy day activity, and because the caves stay the same temperature all year round, winter is a less-busy and equally as epic time to visit.
