What you'll do
You will be picked up by a comfortable modern vehicle. We will travel in a small group for 25 minutes to the location . Once kitted up with headlights and red night torches we will begin a 2 km walk through the darkness of a native New Zealand forest. Along the way we will encounter towering trees and cascading waterfalls, giant silver ferns lighting up like fire works . The highlight would have to be the glowworms as breath taking as our clearest night sky. You will be able to get up close and fully understand this amazing creature. No two nights are ever the same. Wallabies and possums patrol the area, Weta and other insects can be encountered.

Hi I'm Stephen and I have a small tour business called Real Rotorua. I grew up on a farm and spent my childhood exploring the native forest which I was surrounded by, today I still have that passion for the outdoors and share that knowledge with my two boys. I have had a range of Jobs from a mechanic to driving 40 tonne trucks but guiding is my passion . I have been guiding for more than 3 years and hold Department of Conservation guiding permits. Meeting people and sharing is what makes me tick.
