3. Waitomo Caves
Waitomo’s limestone landscape forms an underground world filled with twisting passageways, sculpted rock formations, whirlpools and an ever-flowing waterfall. Waitomo caverns also host luminescent glowworms unique to New Zealand – one of its many spectacular attractions that draw visitors here each year. These subterranean marvels rank among New Zealand’s premier attractions and form a highlight for many visiting its region.
Waitomo cave glow-worms use bioluminescent lure to attract insects with their bioluminescent light source, emitting low-level illumination that draws insects in, lighting their flight paths and making the glow-worms easily identifiable in their flight paths. As such, glow-worm tours are available throughout the year; however, their best time of sighting occurs during winter through spring (November to April).
Visitors to Glowworm Caves during this season can take advantage of discounted multi-cave combo rates; though these soaring Ruakuri and Aranui caves may not be as well known, their majestic caves make them well worth visiting nonetheless.
Glow-worm experience tours offer various tour options, from walking tours and gondola rides through cave rivers, to touching stalactites, stalagmites, and helictites that may cause chemical reactions with skin. Please remember that touching any limestone formations may damage their structural integrity or even result in chemical reactions with skin cells causing allergic reactions or chemical burns.
