On our photography tours we take you through beautiful untouched New Zealand scenery both inside and outside of the glow worm caves, with an experienced guide.
These tours are “private”. That is, your group and your guide will be the only participants on the tour. On photography tours we take a minimum of two and a maximum of four people.
Photography tours are a little different from the standard Off the Beaten Track tour. The main difference is we focus on the entrance/exit of the cave and the very picturesque Mangapu Gorge. There are many incredible photo opportunities including beautiful glow worm displays, stunning limestone formations, and light filtering through pristine New Zealand native bush. The cave system on our farm is one of only two in the Waitomo district that is classified by New Zealand’s Department of Conservation as being of “International Significance”. It is completely untouched!
To get an indication of the type of scenery on the tour take a look at the video at the bottom of this page.
On photography tours we allow larger cameras and other equipment like small tripods. You have the freedom to take a lot more time with your photography than you do on our other tours. Photographing glow worms is challenging, and can take patience. The results though can be spectacular!
For safety reasons we don’t take photography tours through some parts of the cave system. All equipment must also be carried in a backpack, as hands must be free when moving up and down the tracks. All cameras and equipment are taken at your own risk.
If you don’t have your own wheels, there are 3 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.
