Are you up for Waitomo's most intense Action Adventure?
Haggas Honking Holes is fast-paced and packed with excitement and adventure.
This caving expedition packs a lot into only four hours - you'll encounter abseils (often in waterfalls), rock climbs, unique limestone formations and get up close to glowworms while exploring this fantastic cave system.
No prior experience is necessary. Participants should, however, be moderately fit and brave.
There's no swimming required but you're definitely going to get wet! This is a great winter trip, the cave never floods!

Location:1227 Waitomo Valley Road, Waitomo
Fitness Test:If the guide(s) on the day have any doubt about a client’s fitness they may ask them to prove it by completing a fitness-test. One quick and simple test we may use is “to step up and down a 20 cm (8 inches) step not less than 45 times in 60 seconds”. We strongly recommend clients complete this test before they book their activity and before they travel to Waitomo. Clients may also be requested to submit to breath-testing for alcohol or other drugs. Where appropriate, guides may at their sole discretion cancel a departure or remove an unsuitable client from a departing trip for any safety-related reason.
Pregnancy: We do not recommend abseiling ( rappelling ) during the 1st and 3rd trimester due to the need to wear a tight-fitting harness across your waist during the abseil.
All pregnant clients wishing to participate in one of our adventure options must provide a medical certificate from their General Medical Practitioner confirming that they are fit for abseiling ( rappelling ) and caving.
This policy is required for us to comply with the NZ Adventure Safety Regulations.

Thanks so much Francine for your generous review - which is much appreciated ! Yes indeed - The Haggas Honking Holes is Waitomo's most concentrated action and the one to do if you want to push your boundaries a bit. All power to you !
Thanks so much Christine! Your generous words are much appreciated. ....and congratulations for taking on this sporty and challenging adventure! :)
Thanks very much Ritziiv Given the burgeoning bureaucracy in NZ, we reckon this option is about as much as you can still legally do with unsuspecting members of the public in NZ. You were the perfect person to come and have fun with us in this special cave :)
Thanks so much Ernak ! We're delighted you could come and experience our underground playground! This trip is not for the faint hearted - so well done indeed :)
Nice work Emily - so glad you chose us and that we could show you this amazing place. This trip is regarded as the most concentrated action you can do in a half day at Waitomo - so well done for taking it on !
