Te Anau Glowworm Caves

Our trip to the Te Anau Glowworm Caves began with a cruise to the western shores of Lake Te Anau on one of the purpose-built scenic cruise vessels. 



This underground world is astonishingly beautiful. By geological standards the caves are very young (12,000 years) and are still being carved out by the force of the river that flows through them. The result is a twisting network of limestone passages filled with sculpted rock, whirlpools and a roaring underground waterfall.

Deep inside the caves, beyond the roar of the water, you will be taken by small boat into a silent hidden grotto inhabited by thousands of glowworms, unique to New Zealand. In the subterranean darkness, they produce a glittering display that is nothing short of extraordinary.

 We were not allowed to take pictures but they showed us a video of the glowworm.


At the entrance of the cave, pictures of us were taken. When we finished our tour, we could buy our photos.
