to find out how to enjoy this activity with minimal impact on the environment and other people.
If you are looking for adventure you’ll find plenty of it when caving. Explore an underground labyrinth alive with glow worms, see fascinating natural sculptures formed over millions of years and meet the inhabitants who live in these places.
There are caving opportunities all over New Zealand and some of the best sites are in places managed by the DOC. Make sure you check out Waitomo Caves, Waikato and Howards Hole, Takaka.
