  • My travel mates and I (2 guys, 2 girls) all mid-20s did this walk on our way from Arthur's Pass towards Christchurch. Easy to navigate to and travel from. As previously stated, a very good set of head...  more »

  • Such a beautiful place to visit. We went in mid-late Jan. Doing the Cave Stream walk was definitely one of my favourites on the south island. We went with a group of 4 which meant my friends were able to give me a bit of a leg up when needed in some parts of the cave - some bits were a bit steep! Take headlamps if you can (with fresh batteries!) and maybe an extra torch. I wore merino leggings, a merino long sleep top, a hoodie and a beanie and I started to sweat even though the water was shockingly cold - the merino really retains your body heat. And to think I was worried I'd need a wetsuit - the merino was perfect. Don't underestimate the cold though - although the merino retained my body heat I also had trouble breathing in the first & deepest section of the cave where the water came up to my chest - that first dip is freezing! I also wore wool socks and some sneakers.
  • It's amazing only 1 hour driving from Christchurch and totally free!! We had a great day, even saw some baby eels in the cave!
  • Amazing river tunnel formed by nature. If you have the right clothing you can even walk through it.
  • check the weather forecast, current water height, take a torch, leave your intentions and enjoy a great New Zealand cave!
  • Thrilling and amazing scenery. Bring spelunking gear if you plan to do the cave and be wary of the water levels in the beginnig.
