Discover two of the best natural attractions in the North Island in just a day - the magical Waitomo caves and the Geothermal wonders of Te Puia!
Experience two of New Zealand's most unique and fascinating natural attractions on this epic small group tour from Auckland.
Beginning with a convenient pick up in a comfortable minibus, you'll enjoy a scenic drive through classic New Zealand countryside passing by the longest river in NZ, mountains and typical farm animals on the way to your first destination - stunning Waitomo Caves.
An iconic natural wonder known for its glowworms, ancient caves and all-round beauty, Waitomo Caves are a must see for visitors and locals alike. You'll explore different cave formations including Stalactites, Stalagmites and Lime Columns then head further underground to board a boat where you'll cruise along the grotto river lit up by thousands of glow worms above - simply magical!
We next head to Rotorua passing by many iconic spots on the way, after which we'll seek out famous and historical sites including Lake Rotorua, The Government Gardens, Blue Baths, Thermal Springs and Polynesian Spa. We'll then head to Te Puia Geothermal Park - a natural marvel, where you can enjoy lunch and even choose to purchase a traditional Maori Hangi meal!
You'll enjoy a fully guided tour of the Geothermal Park to discover the Pōhutu Geyser, Maori Architecture, the Maori craft school, geothermal craters, geothermal vents and even possibly see a kiwi bird! Top off your experience with some souvenir shopping before heading back to Auckland after a great day out.
