- Simply astonishing natural spectacle
- One of the must-do New Zealand experiences
The world-famous glow worms caves of Waitomo rank among the most popular visits on New Zealand’s North Island. Many people will detour for miles just to see this stunning natural phenomenon. A vast cave system spanning 250 metres, culminating in the spectacular ‘Cathedral,’ is filled with tiny glow worms all over the walls. You’ll travel gently along by boat in the pitch darkness, the only light provided by these miniature creatures. Thousands of glow worms illuminate your progress like a starry sky.
The awe-inspiring journey through the Waitomo glow worm caves is a true highlight of the Rotorua region. Your guide will point out ancient limestone formations that reach from the ceiling of the cave to the water, while you fall in love with the delicate beauty of the glow worms themselves. A classic New Zealand gift experience that showcases the breathtaking natural world.
