Overview

  • Come and experience a true piece of New Zealand paradise!
  • You’ll begin your adventure walking through beautiful native bush, climbing over boulders and wading through the freshwater stream that flows into our cave system.
  • What’s really special about Glowing Adventures is that we have left our caves in their purest and most natural state.
  • With no concrete paths or electric lighting, this is a genuine eco-adventure into the heart of New Zealand’s magical glow worm environment.

Program

  • Our personalised 3 hour guided tours are for small groups of 2-8 people.
  • We’ll welcome you to our farmhouse and give you all the clothing, footwear and equipment you need.
  • Once inside the caves, you can explore magical glow worm displays and stunning limestone formations at your own pace, stopping to take photos along the way.
  • You’re welcome to bring a small camera along on the tour.
  • Your guide will also take great pictures of your adventure which we’ll email you afterwards for free.
  • After your tour, enjoy a hot shower and refreshments back at the farmhouse.
  • We love meeting new friends from all over the world and sharing our local knowledge and travel tips.
  • The incredible cave system on our family farm is one of only two in Waitomo classified as ‘of international significance’ by NZ’s Department of Conservation.
  • Glowing Adventures is located off the beaten tourist track, but still within a short drive of the Waitomo Caves Village and the small towns of Te Kuiti and Otorohanga.
