Waitomo Caves is a massive system of underground caves in the North Island of New Zealand. It’s also home to thousands of tiny little glow-worms, which are native to New Zealand. On this remarkable trip, an experienced guide will take you and your family around on a boat so you can take a closer look at them.

The tour lasts around 45 minutes in today and your guide will take you through the two levels of the caves. First, the lower level where you’ll take a boat trip through the stream passages, quietly overserving the glowworms. Then, you’ll explore the upper levels where it’s a bit drier and you’ll be able to take in the beauty of the cave walls.

Along the way, your guide will be on hand to answer any questions you might have and to give you lots of information about this magical place. All our guides are local so have lots of legends and tales they can share with you.

So, what are you waiting for? Book now and get ready for a unique, only in New Zealand experience at the Waitomo Glowworm Caves.
