Waitomo Glowworm Caves – New Zealand

The Waitomo Glowworm Caves are located on the North Island of New Zealand. The cave forms part of the Waitomo Caves system which also includes the Ruakuri Cave and the Aranui Cave. As the name indicates, the Glowworm Caves are indeed home to thousands of these little creatures. In what is known as the Glowworm Grotto, they can be identified by the myriad of tiny bright lights dotting the ceiling providing a twinkling glow which reflects off the water. In addition to the glowworms, the caves feature spectacular limestone formations including stalactites and stalagmites produced as a result of water dripping through the ceiling, or flowing over the walls, and leaving limestone deposits behind.
