What You Can Expect
On arrival at the caves, start your tour by exploring the main chambers. View the impressive stalactites and stalagmites, created by the constant dripping of water over thousands of years. Later, board your boat and head down river to the grotto. As your eyes become accustomed to the darkness, you will see a faint band of light that surrounds you, these are the glowworms. Be entranced by thousands of tiny living lights hanging like ropes of pearls from the ceiling of the cave.
After your caves tour, re-board the coach for your return journey to Rotorua. passing through the Fitzgerald Glade, a section of the highway where the native bush grows right up to the roadside and the trees form a canopy overhead like a tunnel.
The caves are amazing and very peaceful. Once your eyes become accustomed to the darkness, the glowworms are revealed. Well worth a visit.
