Te Anau Glowworm Caves
Experience a subterranean world with a boat ride across an underground river underneath the shimmer of hundreds of glowworms.
Your trip to the Te Anau Glowworm Caves begins with a cruise to the western shores of Lake Te Anau on a purpose-built scenic cruise vessel.
View the informative displays at the entry to the caves at Cavern House, and learn about this geological wonder before you join your guide underground.
By geological standards, the Te Anau Glowworm Caves are very young (12,000 years) and are still being carved out by the force of the river flowing through them. The result is a twisting network of limestone passages filled with sculpted rock, whirlpools and the roar of an underground waterfall.
