Our full day epic lost world abseiling adventure was named one of the best things you can do in New Zealand by the guys at Lonely Planet travel guides!

Abseil 100 metres into this amazing cavern wearing a wetsuit - you're heading off to explore the Mangapu River passage.

The 100-metre freehanging abseil will astound you, but on this option that's only the beginning. Spend the rest of the day walking, wading and swimming through the cavernous passages of this famous underground system.

Yes, you need to be moderately fit (e.g. go bush walking for a day), but the trip is intended for complete novices - all you need is a swimsuit and a smile!

See fossil giant oysters and whalebones, giant flowstone (looks like icing sugar running down the walls). Lots of fun and optional challenges available including water jumps, climbs and spiders. You'll also witness an absolutely fantastic glow worm display.

Also includes lunch and a BBQ dinner as well as all equipment (helmets, lights, wetsuits, ropes, harnesses, boots etc).

This will be the highlight of your world trip. If you came to NZ looking for top adventure, this is for you!
