Venture into a magical underground world of glowworms

Experience the underground world of hundreds of glittering glowworms in Te Anau. A guided cave tour suitable for children of all ages. Begin your adventure with a cruise along the western shores of Lake Te Anau. Immerse yourself in the geological history of the 12,000-year-old caves.

In geological terms, these caves are rather young and today, are still being carved out by rivers flowing through them. Your friendly guide will share their knowledge of the caves and their history. Wander through the limestone passages filled with sculpted rock, whirlpools and an underground waterfall.

As you walk deep into the caves, you will jump on board a small boat to discover a silent, hidden grotto that is home to hundreds of glowworms. Be amazed by this fascinating underground network and watch your children’s eyes open wide with excitement.
