This full day tour from Auckland is designed to showcase the best of rural New Zealand landscape and enjoy all that the Waitomo area has to offer.
Upon arrival at Waitomo join the legendary Black Water Rafting Company for their Black Labyrinth tour of the cave system. In your wetsuit you will be gliding through the cave system on the underground stream in an inner tube. You'll take leaps of faith over cascading waterfalls and float serenely down an underground river as you enjoy the glow worm show on the vaulted limestone galleries up above. Note - one hour spent underground.
Then take a short drive to our lunch destination in a beautiful rural location where the group has a traditional New Zealand barbecue buffet lunch.
After lunch, visit the Otorohanga Kiwi house and native bird park where you get the rare chance to see New Zealand’s iconic Kiwi bird.
A relaxed drive back to Auckland completes the day
