More information

Underworld Rafting is a cave rafting adventure in the Paparoa National Park.

We take a train through primeval rainforest and explore a calcitic paradise in one of New Zealand’s largest caves.

Experience amazing stalactites and stalagmites formations before descending to the lower levels of the cave to float through the most incredible glow-worm lit grottoes.

We exit via the awe-inspiring "Ananui" exit and have fun bouncing down the small but fun filled Nile River rapids.
