Rotorua to Waitomo to Rotorua
Experience the wonder of Waitomo with this one day trip departing from Rotorua. Depart from your hostel in Rotorua with the 'Waitomo Wanderer' and head to Waitomo to experience the caves. "Wai" means water, "tomo" means cave, so you can guess what you are getting into. The caves are made of limestone (basically 40 million year old dead fish). The Waitomo Day Trip has enough time for you to do the Black Labyrinth Tour run by The Legendary Black Water Rafting Company, if you wish, which is a three hour caving adventure, seeing glow-worms in caves, stalactites, fossil oysters and tube your way through the underground caves! Head back to Rotorua the same day, or stay longer in Waitomo to check out the Ruakuri caves, or more black water rafting!
