New Zealand's natural beauty goes far below the surface, as you'll discover on this guided tour of the Waitomo Caves. The underground cave complex is home to millions of glowworms and spectacular formations, like the Cathedral Cave. Your guide will tell you all about the natural forces at work in the cave, on a tour that's fun and informative for both adults and kids.

This is a really magic walk, one of the best I have ever had the good fortune to hike. There are amazing limestone caverns and gorges to see and walk through. The area is bush covered and paths are extremely well maintained and easy to traverse.

If you're visiting other activities in the area, you should try to find time for this free short walk, if you can. Lots of interesting things to see and really atmospheric. We walked it in daytime but heard it's do-able at night and is really magical.

What an amazing place! We visited Waitomo Caves first which was amazing but in a different way to this place. The circular entrance way is incredible and once inside the caves you won't be disappointed. Our guide, Mitch, was great and was really good with our kids (ages 14 and 12). He was informative and fun. Definitely worth the visit

Bush walk which includes waterfalls, some steps and climbing through a cave. We did this walk during the day, then went back at night with torches to see the glow worms.

My kids aren't especially keen on bush walks but I make them do them anyway because I'm a mean, awful mother. Mooohahahaha!! For kids like mine this is a great walk because it's short, easy, and has plenty of things to see and do. A bridge, a dark hole with a river coming out that you can get super close to, steps (lol, no one likes those), the track goes through a cave!!!!!!!! Good for prams/wheelchairs up to the stairs too.
