For something really challenging, the Tasman Mountains, north-west of Nelson, are some of the world's largest and deepest caving systems, with many caves still to be explored. Nearby on the Takaka Hill (Marble Mountain) is Harwoods Hole, one of the world's largest sinkholes, just off the main Motueka-Takaka road. * Unfortunately commercial operators can no longer take paying clients into this system. Contact local Nelson/Tasman district caving clubs if you wish to pursue venturing into Harwoods Hole.
