Arrive at our farmhouse, and we'll outfit you from head to toe for this unforgettable journey. Experience an authentic eco-adventure for small groups (8 or less). Your 3-hour guided tour begins in lush native bush, climbing boulders, and wading through a stream into our untouched, natural caves. Here at Down to Earth, we're all about keeping it natural. Our caves remain untouched, with no concrete paths or flashy electric lights. It's the real deal – an authentic eco-adventure into the heart of New Zealand's enchanting glow worm environment. We're selfie-approved. Bring your small camera to capture the magic. Plus, we'll gift you a collection of photos, free of charge. Don't wait. Join us.
