The best caving experience I've ever had! Gareth and his young guides brought us to the heart of the underworld; through caverns filled with amazing rock formations and glow worms, sliding down the 'keyhold' , squeezing through narrow gaps I never thought possible, rock climbing to spectacular caverns, crawling and swimming through endless tunnels in the 'rattlesnake'. The journey back... More

As part of my birthday present, my husband arranged for us to go rock climbing in Raglan with Raglan Rock. What an amazing experience. The setting was beautiful, Gareth's guidance and banter was entertaining, informative and fun. We had a blast. Great tuition, with the climbs being challenging and inspiring - and pitched at just the right level for newbies... More

My husband and I have 4 children ages from 4-14, and none of us have had much experience with rock climbing. Gareth didn't waste any time... he was constantly teaching us about the area, the plants and animals, on top of how to climb properly. I didn't even expect it, but I left with such a feeling of physical and... More

Hi, very tired, mentally on the edge of both exhaustion and exhilaration after a fantastic 3½ hours walking, stepping, crawling, climbing, squeezing and all other kinds of movements my body could and had to make, to get me through this stunning underearth universe. My 12 year old son Hjalte was with us and in the rattlesnake he showed great bravery... More

In the summer holidays we had a fantastic afternoon out with Raglan Rock. Our group ranged from age 3 to 40 and Gareth was amazing catering for all our needs as well as providing lots of challenge. It was so awesome to be giving something new a go and seeing the kids so excited. Would definitely recommend and do again.... More

This was hands down the best rock climbing experiebce I've ever had. I got taught how to use some proper climbing equipment and learnt a lot. It was the perfect balance between being do-able and difficut, and there are plenty of difficult sections if you are looking to be challenged! Thanks very much, will recommend you to everyone!

My fiancé and I had a great morning of climbing. We had only climbed indoors previous to this, but we've had our eyes opened up to how much more fun climbing outdoors is. Gareth from Raglan Rock was great fun to be with and had total confidence in his skill and safety. The views were awesome and we'd tottally recomed... More

Returned yesterday from a fantastic experience.! Three friends and i went caving with Raglan Rock. Not only was it fascinating and a real treasure to see what beauty exists under the ground of this amazing land, but it was a journey that gave us an appreciation of our own abilities to trust what our bodies can do when asked to....

Despite my wifes fear of heights she conquered a number of climbs and ended the day with a huge sense of self accomplishment. Thoroughly recommend trip and... More
