Waitomo Glowworm Caves

See glow worms shining in the dark

New Zealand, North Island
2 hours

The Waitomo caves are famous for the glow worms, extensive underground river system and stunning stalactite and stalagmites formations.

You can either do a guided walking tour, guided boat ride or cave black water rafting to see glowworms in the dark and explore the cave. Blackwater rafting is like a wild water ride underground! Depending on your time, budget and fitness level all experiences are worth it.

Because of the glow worms this is basically nature's own disco party in a cave – pretty awesome!


Book the tour a few days in advance in summer.
