Stop At: Ruakuri Cave, Waitomo Caves, Waitomo District, Waikato Region, North Island
We'll head to Ruakuri Cave for a 2 hour tour of this fascinating pitch black cavern! Ruakrui, or "Dog's Den" in the local Maori, was originally a Maori burial site. This extensive cave hosts of complexly shaped limestone formations. Here we'll take the longest underground guided tour ever, descending into New Zealand's depths to discover million-year-old stalactites - some of which even have fossils embedded in them and have grown coral! Don't worry about bringing a flashlight, cause the caverns will be aglow with walls of glowworms!
