Capture a Universe in a Cave

Join us on this amazing experience exploring one of the most beautiful glowworm caves in Waitomo! We will explore by foot by boat in a small group of no more than 6 photographers.


Learn How

Before the Tour, we will have a one-hour prep online meeting where we will talk about the camera settings you will need, gear to consider and of course to answer all your questions!


+ 3 Hour of Practice

We will spend more than 3 hours in the caves and we will be there with you in case you have questions or you get stuck!


Snacks Included

We will have some snacks for after the tour so we can socialize and share our experiences and photos!


The tracks are safe and easy, though a moderate level of fitness is required as we will be walking and standing for more than 3 hours. You have to be comfortable being in the dark. We will travel at a slow pace and allow extra time to ensure we arrive on schedule. After we explore the caves together we will split into 2 groups and rotate so we all get to take the photos we want! This workshop includes an Online Theory Class.
