Queenstown

After a full buffet breakfast at the hotel's waterfront Wakatipu Grill restaurant, enjoy your pre-selected tour from our Freedom of Choice options:

  • Te Anau Glowworm Caves (Private transfer to Te Anau & group tour inside the caves and cruise) - Your driver/guide will pick you up from your hotel in our luxury vehicle and take you on a scenic journey to Te Anau. Cruise to the western shores of Lake Te Anau on one of our purpose-built scenic cruise vessels. On the tour of the caves, our friendly guides will point out the highlights and share their knowledge of the caves and its history. This underground world is astonishingly beautiful. By geological standards, the caves are very young (12,000 years) and are still being carved out by the force of the river that flows through them. The result is a twisting network of limestone passages filled with sculpted rock, whirlpools and a roaring underground waterfall. Deep inside the caves, beyond the roar of the water, you will be taken by small boat into a silent hidden grotto inhabited by hundreds of glowworms, unique to New Zealand. In the subterranean darkness, they produce a glittering display that is nothing short of extraordinary. Cruise back to Te Anau then your driver will take you back to your hotel.

OR
