Summary of The Day: Take the ultimate Waitomo Caves tour to discover all 3 of the famous Waitomo Caves!
Departing from your hotel in Rotorua we'll head out to our first stop: the famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves! Here we'll enjoy a tour of this amazing natural wonder and meet the thousands of little critters that turn these dark caverns into gorgeous turquoise tunnels! These unique creatures are only found in New Zealand and welcome you to explore their subterranean home. We'll also have free time here to explore on our own.
After 45 minutes at the Glowworm Caves, we'll head to Ruakuri Cave for a 2 hour tour of this fascinating pitch black cavern! Ruakrui, or "Dog's Den" in the local Maori, was originally a Maori burial site. This extensive cave hosts of complexly shaped limestone formations. Here we'll take the longest underground guided tour ever, descending into New Zealand's depths to discover million year old stalactites - some of which even have fossils embedded in them and have grown coral! Don't worry about bringing a flashlight, cause the caverns will be aglow with walls of glowworms!
Lastly, we'll head to Aranui Cave. Here we'll have a 45 minute tour of the smallest and most delicate of all the Waitomo caves. Unlike the other caves which house gloworms, this dry cave is relatively untouched by life. However, just past the entrance will discover a colony of native New Zealand cave wetas as well as a stunning collection of stalagmites and stalactites.
We'll return to Rotorua in the evening.
