Footwhistle Glowworm Cave Tour

Surreal and serene, a privately-guided trip to Footwhistle Maori cave is as memorable as it is magical. This is a strange experience with glowworms, deep under the ground. 

You’ll be dropped off at the cave entrance at an emotion-evoking setting in Waitomo, then your private guide will direct you on your way. By the light of candles, the flickering light and shadows of the people passing by will add to the mystique. 

As you delve deeper and deeper into the belly of the cave, the darkness which was previously lit up by your candles will be extinguished in an instant by the dancing, flashing lamp lights of the glowworms living within.
