Ruakuri Cave is New Zealand’s longest guided underground walking tour. Although not as impressive as the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, many people consider this a much more intimate experience as you get many of the features of the main caves – glowworms and limestone formations – but without the tour groups, and unlike the main cave, it is no problem taking your camera inside Ruakuri Cave and it is even accessible by wheelchairs and prams.

Ruakuri Cave is a two-hour experience with 1½ hours underground.
