Waitomo Glow Worm Grotto

See the geological wonders of the Waitomo Glow Worm Grotto and enjoy both countryside and regional town views on the drive each way. At the Waitomo Glow Worm Grotto, travel on an underground river through limestone caves illuminated by the flickering blue-green light of glow worms. The limestone formations include The Cathedral, an acoustically perfect auditorium that has hosted performances by such recording artists including the Vienna Boys Choir. Visit Crosshills, Fraser & Debbie Robertson’s home, where the lovely English style garden is a delight. Enjoy some New Zealand hospitality and a home cooked lunch.
