ADVENTURE MONTH | NOVEMBER 2021

We're turning up the dial on adventure this November. From the iconic Waitomo Trail Run to an exciting mix of limited-time-only combos and experiences - there's something to satisfy every appetite for adventure.

The centerpiece of the month is the iconic Waitomo Trail Run – a 6, 11, 25 or 36km trail adventure in one of New Zealand’s most scenic landscapes. For one month only, we’ve also got your chance to upsize your adrenalin fix with Black Water Rafting: Extreme Edition – featuring more thrills and spills than ever seen before.

Double the fun and experience all the Waikato has to offer, with a Black Water Rafting and Raglan Rock or Rotorua Canopy Tours combo.
