Walking, climbing, floating through, squeezing or abseiling - there are many ways to explore New Zealand's spectacular cave systems. Many are considered sacred by Maori as they were traditionally used for burial. New Zealand's subterranean caving systems are mostly formed from limestone and marble and often illuminated by grottos of glow-worms (luminescent gnat larvae).

Soaring through thin air, abseiling into a subterranean wilderness, cresting volcanic mountain tops, ocean waves & rapids - we get it - you want to be challenged! And when you're finished come back and see the South Island!
