Description

Waitomo and Rotorua Deluxe TourThis Waitomo and Rotorua tour includes a visit to the world-famous Waitomo Glowworm Caves, a series of limestone formations and cave systems with shimmering lights of thousands of tiny glowworms. It is simply a magical subterranean experience. The Arachnocampa Luminosa glowworm is unique to New Zealand, and hundreds of limestone caves lie beneath the craggy King Country hillside. You will be taken on a guided tour through this world-famous cave formation, climaxed by drifting silently in a boat through the glowworm cavern.Departing from Waitomo, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch made locally in Waitomo whilst traveling through the heart of the Central North Island to Rotorua where geysers, bubbling mud pools, and Maori culture await.Experience Rotorua, a city located approximately 145 miles southeast of Auckland.
