Waitomo Glow Worm Caves and Kiwi house day trip from Auckland

Let us take care of the driving as we take you on a day trip to Waitomo. After your Auckland City pick up we drive through iconic New Zealand farmland and stop at a great local cafe on the way to Waitomo Caves for morning tea (own cost).

At Waitomo Glow Worm Caves one of their experienced guides will take you on a walking tour through the caves and talk about the limestone formations and the glowworms. At the end of the cave tour take the iconic boat ride to glide along through the world famous glowworm grotto (subject to water levels). Marvel at thousands of glow worms overhead looking like stars in the night sky.

After your tour at Waitomo we head into Otorohanga where you will have time to buy some lunch before we go to the native bird park.

At the Otorohanga Kiwi house and native bird park there’s plenty of time to explore the aviaries and hear from the Kiwi keepers about the work they are doing and hopefully see some Kiwis. After this we drive back up to Auckland arriving back before the traffic builds up too much.

Bush and Beach have been running small group day tours from Auckland for 35 years so you are in very experienced hands. Our fleet of modern vehicles mean you will be comfortable all day.
