For one month only, experience Black Water Rafting: Extreme Edition!
For those seeking the ultimate challenge, this experience is for you - combining the most exciting elements of our Black Labyrinth and Black Abyss tours, plus plenty more in store. From a 35-metre abseil to ziplining in the dark, and plenty of waterfall climbs and jumps, this four-hour adventure is guaranteed to get the adrenalin pumping!
After checking in and meeting your friendly and passionate guides, it’s time to gear up. You’ll enter the cave through a thrilling abseil and be straight into the underground waters. Spend the next 4 hours weaving around and climbing over rocks, jumping off waterfalls, floating beneath a sky of glow worms, and most importantly, having the most fun you’ve ever had in the dark.
All equipment is provided (including wetsuits and head torches) as well as free photos and a hot shower afterwards! Enjoy our on-site cafe at the Waitomo Homestead, where this tour ends.
