In the surrounding town, there is a handful of activities to keep guests entertained during their vacation. Guests can check out Waitomo's famous caves filled with bioluminescent glow worms for an out worldly experience. For the more adventurous, glampers must try black water rafting, which is just like white water rafting but in caves. For something a little more peaceful and out in the open air, there's horseback riding through the gorgeous green hills in the area.
