Glow Worm Tours

Welcome to without doubt the best Glow Worm viewing experience in New Zealand.

Pick-up is from your centrally located Dunedin accommodation or from the Octagon. 

This tour is only at night and, due to changing hours of daylight, departure times will vary throughout the year, so you will need to call us to find out when departure times are.

Your tour starts with an informative and fun tour of Dunedin city and its premier sites including Baldwin Street - The World's Steepest Street (Gradient 1: 2.86m) - before going on to see the magical Glow Worms.
A short 10-15 minute minute walk through bush in the dark (torches are provided) takes us to where you will see unparalleled viewing of the Glow Worms in their natural habitat - threads and all.

Occasionally we are even lucky enough to see live Possums at play in the trees.

We then return you to your accommodation, via Highgate, with spectacular views of Dunedin under lights.
