Full Description

Embark on an unforgettable full-day adventure from Auckland that combines the magical Waitomo Glowworm Caves and the vibrant Te Puia Geothermal Valley in Rotorua. This unique tour offers the best of both worlds, allowing you to explore two of New Zealand's most famous attractions in one exciting day trip.

Your journey begins with a convenient pick-up from Auckland central, followed by a breathtaking two-and-a-half-hour scenic drive through the picturesque Waikato region towards the Waitomo Glowworm Caves. Upon arrival, you'll have the opportunity to grab a snack or a warm drink at the cafe before starting your guided tour of the Waitomo Grotto.

Inside the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, you'll walk through a mesmerizing natural light display created by thousands of tiny, luminescent glowworms unique to New Zealand. Your knowledgeable guide will share the history and significance of this magical grotto. The highlight of the visit is a serene boat ride on a flat-bottomed boat along the Waitomo River, where you will glide close to the fascinating glowing creatures.

After your enchanting glowworm experience, you'll continue your journey in our luxurious vehicle with a two-hour drive to Rotorua, home to Te Puia Geothermal Valley. Te Puia is renowned for its geothermal wonders, rich Maori culture, and unique native wildlife.

At Te Puia, you'll enjoy a comprehensive guided tour of the 60-hectare site, including the world-famous Pohutu Geyser, the largest active geyser in the Southern Hemisphere. Witness the power of boiling mud pools, marvel at traditional Maori carving and weaving demonstrations at the New Zealand Maori Arts and Crafts Institute, and visit a Maori village to learn about the culture and traditions of the indigenous people. You’ll also have the chance to see New Zealand's iconic kiwi bird in a live enclosure.

After a couple of hours exploring the wonders of Te Puia, we will make our way back to Auckland, ensuring a comfortable drop-off at your accommodation.
