Waitomo Adventures, Waitomo Caves

Canyoning / Rapelling Tour · Adrenaline / Extreme Tour
Waitomo’s Longest Running Operator

We provide only “slow” tourism …Our emphasis is on quality not throughput.

Over 27 years ago Waitomo Adventures pioneered the fantastic Lost World as a new kind of exciting adventure.

Its huge success led us to establish our unique range of five amazing underground adventures.

This means we can help clients to find the caving activity most suited to them.

Today we remain family owned by founders Nick & Carole Andreef and NZ’s most popular

adventure caving specialists.

Our safety record is exemplary with systems proven over many years.

Clients include a wide range of people from School groups to Primeministers to Movie Stars.

Our activities are both Qualmark and Outdoorsmark certified.

If you enjoy unspoilt nature on her own terms; If you want to avoid corporate tourism

and if you want a challenging and rewarding experience these adventures are for you.
