Waitomo Glowworm Caves Day Trip (Auckland to Auckland) ICAWA1

Escape the big smoke and discover the magical Waitomo Caves on this great value return day trip from Auckland. Travelling south from Auckland, this full day Waitomo Caves tour will take you on a journey through the lush and rolling countryside of the Waikato and King Country regions, giving you a taste of rural New Zealand.

At the Waitomo Caves you'll meet your knowledgeable local guide, who will give you a tour of the caves including commentary on their fascinating geological and cultural history. Formed over 30 million years ago, the caves are a natural wonder and are easily accessible by both young and old.

Highlights of your 45-minute Waitomo Caves tour include the awe-inspiring Cathedral - a cavern 18 metres high with wonderful natural acoustics, and the enchanting Glowworm Grotto, which you'll experience by boat. With thousands of sparkling glowworms spread across the ceiling like a blanket of stars this is a peaceful and magical experience that's hard to beat.

At the end of the boat ride you will emerge into a picturesque setting of native New Zealand bush before following a short trail back up to the Waitomo Caves visitor complex. Here you can take in the views and enjoy lunch (own expense), before returning to Auckland in the afternoon.
