Off the Beaten Track Tour - Glowworm Caving Adventure Tour in Waitomo

An “off the beaten track” 3-hour adventure into stunning glowworm caves right here on our family farm! Join us on Waitomo’s top-rated tour for an authentic, private experience you will never forget!

We are a Waitomo family that just happen to have a pretty amazing world-class glow worm cave under our family farm!

Our 3-hour guided tours are for small groups of 8 or less. We’ll welcome you to our farmhouse and give you all the clothing, footwear and equipment you need.

Begin your adventure walking through beautiful native bush, climbing over boulders and wading through the freshwater stream that flows into our cave system.

Here at Glowing Adventures we've left our caves in their pure and 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.

Small cameras are welcome, and we'll email you great pictures afterwards for free!
