Te Anau Glowworm Caves

from $119 pp

Cruise across Lake Te Anau on board a modern catamaran to our amazing 12,000-year-old caves, carved out into incredible swirling shapes by the force of the river that flows through them, located on the western shores. The crew will share stories about the natural history and early pioneers of the region.

On arrival, join the specialist nature guide for your Te Anau Glowworm Caves experience. Above ground the nature guide will detail aspects of the caves and its various inhabitants in the visitor interpretation centre. Then below ground there is a twisting network of limestone passages filled with the whirlpools and waterfalls of the Tunnel Burn Stream. By geological standards, the caves are very young and are still being carved out by the force of this river that flows through them.

Travel through the limestone passages on foot and by boat to find a grotto of thousands of glittering glow worms, native to New Zealand. A great trip for families. It’s also an intimate experience with only 12 people per guide.

Duration: 2.5 hours
