Join one of Glowing Adventure's guided photography tours for an unforgettable subterranean glowworm cave adventure, with the opportunity to photograph glow worms, cave formations, beautiful native New Zealand bush, and maybe even some farm animals!
These tours are "private", so it will be just your group and your guide.
You are welcome to bring tripods and larger camera equipment on our photography tours, unlike our standard eco-tours.
