Day 4: Hamilton - Waitomo
Spend the morning exploring the underground wonders of Ruakuri Cave. See glowworms up close and marvel at the limestone formations and crystal tapestries in this uniquely sustainable experience (the cave is solar powered!). Another way to see Ruakuri Cave is by floating down an underground river and jumping off subterranean waterfalls on a black water rafting trip. This evening, enjoy a guided tour through the Shire at dusk, before eating a banquet fit for a hobbit in the legendary Green Dragon™ Inn.
