On an “Off the Beaten Track” eco tour our knowledgeable guides will escort you through beautiful native New Zealand forest and into untouched caves, here in the Waitomo district. We take small tours of no more than 8 people so have the ability to move slowly through the caves, to enjoy, explore, and take in the surroundings, including our mesmerising glow worm displays.
You’ll see the caves just as nature intended. There are no handrails, electric lights, concrete paths, or other modifications, and the tour involves climbing over boulders, up hills and wading through streams. A moderate level of fitness is required.
Cameras are welcome on our adventures, as long as they fit in your pocket as you’ll need your hands free. A small digital camera or phone is best. Our guides also take photographs of you during the tour, and we’ll email them to you afterwards for free! Keen photographers hoping to bring larger equipment to capture the scenery may wish to consider one of our Photography Tours.
If you don’t have your own wheels there are several companies that offer transport to Glowing Adventures from nearby, depending on where you are in the Waitomo district. Check out our FIND US page for all the details.
