Waitomo Glowworm Caves

The cave consists of two levels featuring distinct natural wonders. The upper level of the cave is much drier and is home to a number of noteworthy limestone formations such as the Catacombs, Pipe Organ and the Banquet Chamber. The lower level is where the famous Cathedral can be found, it is the largest cavern within the cave and the site where famous singers have performed due to its unparalleled acoustics. The area also features a tomo, a 16-meter hole which acts as the link between the upper and lower levels.

Cave Grotto Boat Ride

Take an enchanting boat ride to the depths of the cave. Follow the river's path on your way to the famed grotto where countless glowworms can be seen. Marvel at the sight of these illuminated creatures as they turn the dark crevices of the cave into an underground version of a starry night sky!
