Hidden beneath the mountains on Lake Te Anau’s western shores is an underground network of caves lit by hundreds of glow worms. Your excursion begins with a scenic cruise across Lake Te Anau on board the catamaran Luminosa. After disembarking at Cavern House, our nature guides will take you through the caves in small groups by path and small boat to discover the water sculpted rock formations and the glow worm grotto.
