If you're keen to try black water rafting through caves covered in twinkling glowworms, then Hamilton - Waikato is the place to do it.

The Waitomo Caves is a labyrinth of underground sinkholes, cascading rivers and glowworm caves created over thousands of years. Lying under rolling green farmland, this is the perfect caving system to take a rafting trip - or, for the more adventurous to try tubing. Tubing involves swimming, wading and riding atop small black rubber tubes. Enjoy spotting stalagmites and stalagtites, as well as interesting natural rock sculptures as you adventure through the darkness.
