The world-renowned Waitomo Glowworm Caves occupy a high placing in the New Zealand vacation wish-list. The caves were revealed in the late 19th century by a local Maori chief. They were accessed to the public shortly thereafter with local Maori acting as guides. The glowworm named Arachnocampa luminosa is exclusive to New Zealand. Thousands of these tiny creatures glow with their unmistakable luminescent light as you get educational commentary on the Caves' historical, geological significance as well as showing you stalactites and stalagmites, fossils and cave creatures. Take pleasure in the world famous boat ride under thousands of magical glowworms and become a part of over 120 years of cultural and natural history.
