Waitomo Glow Worm Grotto

This tour takes you to view the geological wonders of the Glow Worm Grotto and be treated to both countryside and regional town scenes on the drive each way. Travel three hours to Waitomo Glow Worm Grotto where you will travel an underground river through limestone caves illuminated by the flickering blue-green light of glow worms. The limestone formations include The Cathedral, an acoustically perfect auditorium that has hosted performances by such recording artists as the Vienna Boys Choir. Pay a visit to Fraser & Debbie Robertson’s home of Crosshills, where the lovely English style garden is a visitor’s delight for some New Zealand hospitality and a home cooked lunch. Then enjoy a three hour drive back to Auckland. Please note that tour order may vary. Consider steps in and out of the cave.
