"Shimmering Glow Worms..." Waitomo Caves Things to Do Tip by voodo0

Waitomo Caves Things to Do: 36 reviews and 53 photos

Join a guided tour, take a boat ride, marvel at Mother Nature's light display as you glide silently through the starry wonderland of the Glowworm Grotto. Meander underground along the Waitomo River and gaze in silence at the myriad of glowworm lights that make up the Glowworm Grotto. As you enter this galaxy of tiny living lights, you'll immediately experience a serene ambience and be fascinated and intrigued by tiny glowworms that light your way.

During the boat ride, no one is allowed to making loud noises... as this will scare off the glow worms and they will quench its glow to hide themselves.

I wonder if someone suddenly fart inside the glow worm caves... Hahaha...
