Te Anau Glowworm Caves
Southland 9679, New Zealand +64 3-249 6000
Watch a glittery network of underground glowworms illuminate before your very eyes at the Te Anau Glowworm Caves! Boat cruises to the caves leave from Te Anau or Queenstown. Note that service from Queenstown is only available during the warmer months. Once you arrive at the caves, you’ll get a quick run-down on the logistics of the cave before entering its mysterious territory. Inside, an experienced guide will highlight the history of the cave and its population of native glowworms. Guides will keep kids entertained with jokes and funny skits. Before long, you’ll reach the star of the show: a tiny grotto far inside the cave, elucidated by thousands of sparkling glowworms. The experience lasts about two hours total and is completely unique to New Zealand!
