A formation began at the bottom of the sea millions of years ago and now this is among New Zealand’s most popular natural wonders. The limestone formations within the caves in the Waitomo region are the must-see destination in North Island, rather in entire New Zealand. This region is the home to the exceptional sightseeing attractions. Specifically, the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, located in the southern Waikato region of the North Island is popular for its one-of-a-kind illuminating glow worms filled cave wall. A glow worm species Arachnocampa luminosa, solely found in New Zealand, radiate their pronounced resplendent light and the cave roof looks brilliantly starry.
Winding along the flow of Waitomo river, experiencing the serene ambience of the cave, everyone will be fascinated. The entire Waitomo Caves system also includes the Ruakuri Cave and the Aranui Cave along with the Glow Worm Cave.
Your tour guide will explain the caves’ historical and geological significance while your boat ride underground along Waitomo river enjoying the effulgent lights.
