On arrival at Waitomo, you will discover an underground labyrinth of ancient limestone caverns and formations, and enter “The Cathedral” which has such excellent acoustics that the Vienna Boys’ Choir has recorded there.

Expert guides will give interesting & informative details on the historic & geological aspects of the caves.

This is followed by a boat trip into the famed Glow-worm Grotto, where you will see Arachnocampa Luminosa, which is unique to New Zealand.
