Your Black Labyrinth rafting adventure will take place inside the impressive Ruakuri Cave, the longest underground cave in the Waitomo region.

Kitted out in wetsuit, boots, helmet and your trusty inner tube, you'll climb, leap and float through the caves. Your expert guide will accompany you as you jump down waterfalls, paddle through rapids and glide through vaulted limestone caves, while glowworms twinkle above.

After three magical hours you'll emerge into native bush in the Waitomo Forest, Refresh with a hot shower, then tuck into a delicious lunch of authentic Kiwi fish and chips at the Waitomo Glowworm Caves Restaurant.

Choose to follow your black water adventure with a visit to the other caves in the area (at extra cost), before returning to Rotorua.

Please bring your own swimwear and a towel - all other equipment is provided. You must be aged 12 or over to participate in this tour, and you will need a moderate level of fitness.
