Waitomo Glowworm Caves
This wonder is in Waitomo in the North Island of Newzealand and was explored by two brave hearts for the first time in 1887. The stone formations within the cave were created when the region was still under the ocean millions of years ago. The magical part is its population of glow-worms which amazes the explorers by their twinkling glow in the complete darkness of the cave.
About Waitomo Caves
The Kiwi land is home to the most breathtaking caves and a caving tour here can be your introduction to underground sceneries like you've never seen before. Glow worms called arachnocampa luminosa are luminescent creatures unique to Waitomo, which can be seen in the caves. You can also take a quiet boat ride along the meandering Waitomo River to witness the surreal glow inside the caves. Black water subterranean rafting, rope dangling and rip roaring are some of the most thrilling things to do in New Zealand while visiting the Waitomo Caves in the Waikato region.
