Nocturnal adventure Glow-worm tour

183 reviews
Even on the cloudiest night, the New Zealand glowworm lights up the darkness in a lucky few spots across the country. This short evening bush-walk departing from Rotorua involves a short drive, a walk through picturesque native bush and the chance to see these increasingly rare creatures. Tack this tour onto the end of a thrilling day in Rotorua instead of hiring a car for an almost two-hour drive west to visit the exceedingly popular Waitomo Caves. This is one of the easiest ways to experience Aotearoa’s unique glowworm habitats.

Loved the location loved the hot pools loved the dip in the lake and swimming back to the hot pool... absolutely disappointed we paid for 3 adults and 3 kids paid over $100+ only to find Atleast 20 people adults and kids all walked in for free without paying!!! Mixture of tourists and locals from off their boats!!! Rotoiti hotpools need a system where your wearing a paid hotpools coloured bracelet - then checks within the pools can be more definitive- as paid customers will be wearing paid bracelets.

Hi there, we are so glad you enjoyed your time here at Lake Rotoiti Hot Pools. Rest assured, our local visitors aren't able to walk in for free -- those holding season passes have stickers on their boats which we check from our office. Apologies for the confusion. We can assure you that our payment system is tried and true and no one gets in for free. All the best and hope to see you again someday.

Boarded the Cat for the 45 rminute trip to these remote hot pools. Changing rooms, 6 small pools ( for 6/8 people) plus the warm lake! Varying temperatures of water, not too smelly.

We recently visited the hot pools and had a great day - the facilities have been upgraded a lot since I last visited. Highly recommended. We left my son's sandals behind and didn't really expect to ever see them again. I phoned and Cath could not have been more helpful and even arranged to get them posted back to me in Tauranga at no cost. We we really stoked with this - so nice to when people go above and beyond to help. Thanks again Cath.

Can only get there by boat but well worth the trip. The hosts Cath & Reece are always welcoming. There are 6 pools to choose from so you can find the right temperature for you. Plus there is always the lake to jump in to cool down. Love this spot, My uncle and Aunty used to take me there as a kid and now it is better than ever.
