Experience description

On this New Zealand gift experience, visit the world-famous underground network of caves that is home to a vast population of tiny, vivid glowworms. Just outside the town of Te Anau is one of the Fiordland National Park’s biggest attractions. You’ll begin with a luxurious cruise across Lake Te Anau aboard a stylish and comfortable catamaran with complimentary refreshments, then on the other side take a short walk through the forest to reach the glowworm caves. Along the way, an informative and friendly guide explains the local flora and fauna.

A glowworm may be very small, but when you see thousands of them together, it’s a breathtaking spectacle. Moving silently through the limestone caverns, the way is illuminated by these incredible creatures shimmering in the darkness. New Zealand is overflowing with wondrous natural marvels, and this is one of the very best. Once seen, never forgotten, the glowworms of Te Anau will light up your trip.
