Take a full-day tour to the fascinating Waitomo Glowworm Caves in the Central North Island. Leaving Auckland in the morning, travel through rolling farmland into the Waikato and King Country regions. Your local driver guide will point out highlights of the region, like Rangiriri, where a major battle was fought between British forces and those loyal to the Māori King movement in 1863. After arriving in the small town of Waitomo, you'll be taken on a 45-minute guided tour through the world famous Glowworm Caves. Formed from limestone over 30 million years ago, the caves were first discovered in 1887 and are now one of New Zealand's most popular tourist destinations. Wander through subterranean caverns and learn about stalagmites, stalactites, helictites and other spectacular rock formations. Finish off your tour on a short but enchanting boat ride travelling through the Glowworm Grotto, where thousands of glowworms light up the darkness like tiny stars. After your Glowworm Caves tour, you'll have leisure time at the Waitomo visitor complex, where you can enjoy the stunning views and learn more about the region. Restaurant and cafe style meals are available (own expense).
After your Waitomo experience draws to a close, board the coach for the return trip to Auckland, arriving in the afternoon.
You also have the option to finish your tour with a drop off to Rotorua. In this case, your coach journey continues, passing through the beautiful Fitzgerald Glade where trees arch over the road to form a tunnel of natural greenery. The tour concludes in Rotorua, a city where you can view geothermal activity, Maori culture, spectacular scenery and more.
Useful info: We recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes and taking a warm jacket for your Waitomo Glowworm Caves guided tour.
