Ancient Luminescent Waitomo Glow-Worm Caves
On this tour you will see Mount Maunganui surf beach, voted NZ’s best, pass through kiwifruit orchards (3 Billion dollars horticultural industry in the region) take in the lakes district, beautiful farmland, native bush and pine forest plantations. New Zealand hinterland at its best
Leaving the port, we travel into the Waikato region through arguably New Zealand’s best farmland, dairy farms, horse studs, and hydro dams – plenty to see on this trip!
Your cave guide will take you on a magical boat ride on the underground river through prehistoric caves that resemble a fairytale world as your boat silently glides through the starry wonderland.
Deep in the cavern, you will view ancient stalactites, stalagmites, and eroded columns as your guide brings you up close to glowworms, elaborate cave formations, underground rivers, myths, legends, and sacred Maori sites, and associated history.
On the return journey we stop at Otorohanga for lunch and visit the kiwi house to view our iconic national bird.
Bring your camera for great memories of your wonderful New Zealand holiday
