ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
Black Water Rafting is the most fun you can have in the dark, on this epic caving tour you will abseil, weave, jump and climb through the amazing Ruakuri Cave.

Travel in the footsteps of ancient Maori and float down underwater river systems in the soft glow of blue bioluminescence on this tubing excursion in Waitomo's famous Ruakuri cave...

There's an echoing silence in the heart of the Black Labyrinth, a haunting sense of spirituality left by generations of Maoris that explored this cave system with nothing but the light of burying glowworms to light the way. Explore the belly of this mighty Maori burial site and travel via the Black Labyrinth on a 3-hour subterranean adventure.

Location
A 2-hour drive from Auckland, Waitomo is a small village on New Zealand's north island known for its extensive cave systems - namely, Ruakuri Cave. The longest underground cave in the Waitomo area of New Zealand, this spiritual urupa is made popular by its glowworm ceiling, waterfall features, and limestone formations.

Activity
An all-action subterranean adventure, groups will abseil 35m into the cave - navigating the Black Abyss route on foot and by using inflatable tubes down underground rivers. A 5-hour physically demanding course across large caverns and through tight squeezes, highlights include tubing down waterfalls, ziplining through a gallery of illuminating glowworms and climbing across deep caverns.

Conditions
A temperate underground environment with a diverse and slippery terrain, water temperature varies between 10-14°C.
