Journey deep into Waikato's popular cave system with this popular Waitomo Glowworm and Ruakuri Caves package. Showcasing two different natural sights, this is an adventure not to be missed when in the Waikato region. This bundle gives you the freedom to explore the caves whenever suits between the 1st of October and 30th of September.

Waitomo Glowworm Caves are a beautiful grotto to explore, with thousands of miniscule glow worms lighting the cave up and unintentionally imitating the glowing night sky. This is one of the most popular attractions in the region, and for good reason, the sights in the Glow Worm Cave such as the limestone formations will take your breath away. Visitors should allow at least 45 minutes to explore the glowworm caves with tours running every half hour throughout the day.

The second atraction included in this package; Ruakuri Cave, offers views of the 'other' side of Waikato cave systems. With a range of incredible sights including cascading waterfalls that echo through the caves and delicate limestone formations, Ruakuri Cave is a beautiful sight to see. Tours through this cave system are to be booked prior to your arrival as they aren't as frequent as the Waitomo Cave tours.

For convenience, there is a shuttle bus that operates from the visitor centre to the cave entrance, however during peak periods, those with access to cars may be required to drive themselves to the entrance. Book your Waitomo Glowworm and Ruakuri Caves package online today to being your adventure in the beautiful Waikato region.

Good value for money (especially with the Experience Oz discount!) and a fantastic experience. We had two amazing tour guides, T & Angus - so friendly and informative. While going through the caves on the boat, you had to stay absolutely silent, (great idea!) It simply added to the amazingly beautiful yet eerie atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to friends & family visiting the area!

One of the best things I’ve been too in NZ - such a cool experience to see what is in our country

One of the best things I’ve been too in NZ - such a cool experience to see what is in our country! The tour guides were just fantastic and knew what they were doing! You could tell they loved their job! If you are ever in NZ this is a must! The Ruakuri Cave was my favourite!

We drove and parked in the car park down at the Ruakuri caves (which was the best of the two cave tours by far)

We drove and parked in the car park down at the Ruakuri caves (which was the best of the two cave tours by far)! The tour guide was really nice and friendly and after finding out I had done a geography degree she was very keen to test my knowledge which was funny! Anyway, the tour was fantastic! Unlike the glowworm caves you were allowed to take photos on this tour and the tour guide even took a photo of us both shining her torch to light up the cave. The limestone formations were incredible to see and we even saw quite a few glowworms and learnt alot about them, more than we did on the actual glowworm tour which personally felt abit rushed and not as informative. The spiral staircase was an eye opener and the sheer number of stalagmites and stalactites was amazing! The Ruakuri caves were definitely the best! The Waitomo caves were good but we didn't understand all the hype as you couldn't even take photos until the very end which meant you missed all of the glowworms (the main reason you go on the tour) however the best part of was the final part of getting on the boat and seeing the thousands of glowworms above you this was truly incredible! Overall the day was really good, the Waitomo cave is still a must just to see the sheer number of gloworms but we were so glad we did the Ruakuri cave first as this was the better of the two tours, so if you're debating which to do... I would 100% recommend Ruakuri!

This is the most popular combo including the Waitomo Glowworm Caves and Ruakuri Cave, we recommend pre-booking this experience!
