Mercury Bay (Whitianga) to Waitomo

9 Sep

September 1, 2011 (in NZ)

Today, we made our way to the Karangahake Scenic Reserve where we started the morning off with a quick hike – I think everyday should start like this. It was so refreshing!

Then, we made our way to what was probably one of my favourite experiences of the trip (and well worth it!) – the Black Water Rafting experience. I did the Labyrinth option which was caving and tubing through the Waitomo Caves. We jumped off of tiny waterfalls with our tubes and then when the water would calm we would coast along and if you looked up you could see glow worms!

We stayed at the YHA Kiwi Paka – I loved it because we had 3 people in a room and lots of space for once!
