- Duration: 10 Hours (approx.)
- Product code: TT113
Discover the top attractions of New Zealand’s North Island on this full-day two of Waitomo Caves and Kiwi House tour from Auckland.
Travel along the banks of the Waikato River and visit the famous Waitomo glowworm caves with a guide. Explore the caverns and limestone shafts on foot and by boat,
and gaze over the millions of bright green glow worms you find.
Ruakuri Cave is New Zealand's longest guided underground walking tour and an experience that must be seen to be believed. Offering a captivating blend of Waitomo's most compelling subterranean experiences, it will leave you open-mouthed, awe-struck and humbled by the sheer majesty of nature. Begin the tour by journeying down through the spectacular, man-made spiral entrance, marvel at the softly folding shawl-like limestone formations and crystal tapestries while listening to the distant thunder of subterranean waterfalls.
After lunch you visit the Kiwi house and native bird park at Otorohanga where you get the chance to see New Zealand’s rare and iconic Kiwi bird. You
also learn about what the centre is doing with their Kiwi bird breeding program to help the endangered birds. There is also an opportunity to have a look at
some of the other rare and iconic New Zealand birds and animals that the park has.
This 8-hour tour includes round-trip travel from your Auckland hotel in the comfort of a luxury late model vehicle.
