What To Expect

Having been extremely well protected, the Waitomo Caves are as awe-inspiring as they were when they were first formed. Head back over 100 years in time and experience the Waitomo Caves like Maori Chief Tane Tinorau and English surveyor Fred Mace did when they first discovered the magical light illuminated by the glowworms. Look up at the stalactites shining from dew, and the dots of light covering the roof of the cave and reflected in the grotto. Listen to your guide, some who are descendants of the original owners of the caves, as they share stories and legends of the caves passed down in Maori culture. This experience is like no other as you plunge into the darkness of caves and into a place of natural magic.
