DescriptionTake a full-day tour to the fascinating Waitomo Glowworm Caves in the Central North Island. Leaving Auckland in the morning, you will 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), or a buffet lunch can be pre-booked. After your Waitomo experience draws to a close, board the coach for the return trip to Auckland, arriving in the afternoon.
