Waitomo Cave Spellbound Adventure (1 day)

Don't miss seeing the cave chosen for the BBC's 'Planet Earth' series, taking its place among exceptional caves of the world.  Spellbound is dedicated to letting you experience glowworms at their very best.

This glowworm cave has 3 to 4 times more glowworms than any other glowworm cave option anywhere. This is the only tour to offer extended glowworm viewing in darkness through most our 45 minutes in the cave.

It takes at least 20 minutes for your eyes to adjust completely to glowworm light, with such exceptional glowworms on display, it's worth taking some time. 

Closer glowworms are brighter glowworms – This tour close enough to light up the whole cave.
