Charleston Glowworm Cave Tour

3.5 hours

Price from £56 per person

Join your guide at The Charleston Hotel to commence a Charleston Glowworm Cave Tour. You will be equipped with caving helmets, coats and boots before being taken to the Nile River Rainforest Train for travel through the primeval rainforest close to the enormous Nile River Caves. You will explore an ancient wonderland of stalactites, stalagmites in the large dry upper levels and become 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. This is a simply stunning soft eco-tour in a very special place!

Please note: People must be able to walk for two hours on uneven surfaces.  
Inclusions: Hotel pick up/drop off from Westport accommodation.
