The Waitomo Glowworm Caves attraction is a magnet for both local inhabitants and travelers visiting from overseas. This particular glowworm (or in latin: Arachnocampa luminosa) species is completely unique to New Zealand.
You can begin your tour from several places- but the most popular is departing from Auckland, where you will then travel South through the farmland of the Waikato to Waitomo. Your experienced guide will take you through the stunning underground scenery while sharing interesting stories, legends, and historical facts. The highlight of every tour is a boat trip through the amazing Glowworn Grotto, where thousands of glowworms light your way as they suspend from the ceiling.
This is truly a must see for any traveler visiting this region!
