Explore Bookme forthe West Coast

Charleston - Glow Worm Cave Tour - 3.5 Hours

Add to List

Meet our skilled and knowledgeable Cave guides at our Charleston Base, or we can meet you at your Westport accommodation.

Once at our Charleston Base you will be equipped with excellent caving helmets, boots and if necessary coats.

Then you'll be taken to the Nile River Rainforest Train for your travel through the primeval rain forest close to the enormous Nile River Caves.

On our Glow Worm cave tour, you will explore an ancient wonderland of stalactites, stalagmites in the large dry upper cave levels, and you will be seduced and entranced while under the galaxies of glowworms in the awe-inspiring Ananui entrance series.

Discovered only recently, the Metro cave is one of the few caves in the world you can walk through and see in its natural, unspoilt state, the way it was discovered.

A remarkable underground adventure in New Zealand!

A fantastic and fascinating expedition into one of the most beautiful caves we've ever explored, extremely informative and we're still blown away by seeing the incredible "grand entrance to the caves with lush greenery and water falling from the ceiling - like a movie set from Jurassic Park. An absolute must-see on New Zealand's west coast!

Super staff

The tour was very much an adventure, more than I was expecting. The staff were all awesome, they were funny(especially Peter) and really tried to make it a good experience for everyone. I felt very badly for Hilary, our guide, since she was really dealt a bad hand with me. I am NOT athletic and probably should not have signed up but she helped me get through it and the glow worm display was amazing! After getting into a warm constricting wet suit and my short hike through the forest, walk up 130 tall stairs, and hour walk through the cave i was thinking the glow worms better be worth it -and they were. :) The “float” down the river was even a challenge for me but Hilary came to the rescue again. Hindsight says I probably should have seen the glow worms another way and let my husband and daughter enjoy themselves on this adventure but I made it with the help of the very kind staff and my husband and lesson learned.:)
