Choose our personalised, exclusive tour to experience the famous glowworms of Waitomo Caves...

Our glowworm display is spellbinding and incomparable!

Glide gently through this extraordinary cave and experience Waitomo's largest, brightest and most breathtaking glowworm display. Don't miss seeing the cave chosen for the BBC's 'Planet Earth' series, taking its place among exceptional caves of the world.

Spellbound is dedicated to letting you experience glowworms at their very best.

Our glowworm cave has 3 to 4 times more glowworms than any other glowworm cave option anywhere. We are the only company to offer extended glowworm viewing in darkness through most our 45 minutes in the cave.

It takes at least 20 minutes for your eyes to adjust completely to glowworm light, with such exceptional glowworms on display, it's worth taking some time.

Closer glowworms are brighter glowworms – ours are close enough to light up the whole cave.

The Cave of the Spirit, Te Ana o te Atua, complements our glowworm cave by showcasing speleothems, fossils and beautiful natural light effects. This thoughtfully designed cave presentation can make you forget you are actually in a tourist cave.

Our TWO CAVE TOUR includes the Spellbound Glowworm Cave and The Cave of the Spirit.

Adults $70.00

Please be discerning, do not confuse our tour with various two cave combos available in Waitomo.

We're not providing a two cave combo; instead we'd call Spellbound a designer, cave showcase. That's because we’re offering a creatively and thoughtfully arranged sequence of travel, caves, glowworms and walks which combine to make a fun and memorable whole 3 1/4 hour experience.

There are a number of cave tour companies in Waitomo, visiting a range of caves, only our company has exclusive access to the Mangawhitikau Glowworm Cave and Te Ana o te Atua.

Spellbound is locally owned and operated, totally professional and safe
