Ruakuri Cave

More Information


Winding passageways, vast echoing caverns, deep crevices and the distant thunder of subterranean waterfalls bring a different energy and character to Ruakuri. Your guided tour will take you deep into the unknown.

Ruakuri cave is like no other. You will be captivated by the knowledge and the passion of your guide, while experiencing something not only unique, but incredibly special.

As you enter you will begin a spiral descent to the depths of the earth. You will explore the narrow corridors and be led across low lit walkways suspended high above the river. These walkways were constructed to meet the challenge of respecting the spirit of the cave as well as protecting the environment. The walkways deliver an engineering solution that is not only an impressive showcase of technology, but is uniquely world class.
