Waitomo Caves

Caves · River Rafting & Tubing · Nature & Wildlife Tours
Head deep beneath the surface of the earth at Waitomo Caves, a village and cave system that draws both extreme sports enthusiasts and those wanting something a little more relaxed. Carved from the limestone by underground streams, the vast caves are laced by rivers far under the habitable land above. Stalactite and stalagmite formations make for great photos, but the highlight of your trip to Waitomo Caves is likely to be the constellations of glowworms illuminating these subterranean caverns. Waitomo Caves' small community offers lodgings, cafes, and restaurants for visitors. Don't miss the chace to explore above ground, too: take a horse trek through the lovely surrounding farmland, or make a visit to the local avian preserve to spot some of the land's rarest species. When using our New Zealand holiday planner to make an itinerary online, Waitomo Caves holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
