We consider this to be Waitomo’s best caving adventure and it’s dramatic! You start with a 100-meter abseil (330ft) into the depths of the ‘Lost World’ - this is considered the world’s longest commercial caving abseil (rappel) and it takes some fifteen minutes to get you down – and that is just the beginning!
In the company of a very experienced guide, you start your journey. Once down, you embark on a journey back to the surface through one of the worlds most incredible cave systems. Climbing upstream you follow a challenging underground river by whatever means, so its: swimming, climbing ropes, wading, exploring vaults the size of cathedrals, up waterfalls and monolithic stalactites, squeezing through tight cracks and jumping into deep black pools!
Be warned, this is not one of Waitomo’s run of the mill cave tours. This is a full-on caving experience and you need to be fit and you are going to get very very wet, but fear not you'll be in the safe muddy hands of some of New Zealand’s most well-trained guides.
If you enjoy adventure, exploration and the sense of achievement from having completed something amazing, then The Lost World 'Epic' will be for you, a real New Zealand Adventure.
