The next stop brings us to Kawiti Glowworm Caves where a local Maori guide will lead you through the underground caves and teach you about the history of the caves and the Maori people who have owned them for over 400 years.

Our final stop of the day is at the Opua Kauri Forest which is 15,000 hectares and contains magnificent Kauri trees. Here you will enjoy a 30-minute walk in the beautiful and diverse forest.
