Anatakitaki Kopeka Bird Caves Tour
Overview

A must see in Atiu and an unforgettable experience exploring a national environmental treasure! The Anatakitaki Caves are home to the Kopeka birds which are very unique to Atiu. These swift like birds nest deep within the caverns and navigate in the dark by using an echo locating series of clicks.

The magnificent, towering limestone caverns have huge stalactites reaching to the cavern floor and massive stalagmites that sparkle in the light. It is breathtaking and attracts film crews from around the world. 

On the tour, you'll enjoy a challenging walk through untouched tropical rainforest with your experienced guides, hear the legend of Inutoto and Tangaroa, and learn of the flora and fauna found in the makatea (raised coral) surroundings.

Remember to bring your swimwear so you can enjoy our breathtaking candle-lit swim in an artesian water pool. Also please come wearing strong non-slip footwear and we will supply the cave lights. Transfers are included with this tour.
