Ruakuri Cave is an experience that must be seen to be believed. Offering a captivating blend of the most compelling subterranean experiences (including glowworms), it will leave you open-mouthed, awe-struck and humbled by the sheer majesty of nature. Begin the tour by journeying down through the spectacular, man-made spiral entrance, marvel at the softly folding shawl-like limestone formations and crystal tapestries while listening to the distant thunder of subterranean waterfalls. If you want to see glowworms up-close and personal and learn about their fascinating life, then this is the tour for you.
Discover the majesty of exquisite interior decorations inside Aranui Cave. Almost every corner of the roof and walls are adorned with fragile, sparkling forms in pale brown, pink and white in our most intimate cave system. Begin the tour at the Ruakuri Scenic Reserve, 5 minutes from the visitor centre, as you take a scenic stroll through an enchanted forest to discover the hidden entrance to Aranui Cave. With no river running through it, Aranui Cave houses little life beyond a colony of native New Zealand cave wetas just inside its natural entrance.
