Bay of Plenty
Glow Worm tour
Join us on a very unique experience at McLaren Falls Park, Tauranga. Kayak on a calm, safe waters of the lake before entering the river, shrouded in native bush. As it gets dark hear the haunting call of our own native owl the Ru Ru (Morepork) and watch the speckles of the glow worms amongst the bush.
Brace yourself as we enter the canyon and witness the spectacle of the glow worms covering the steep cliffs of the canyon.
Witness the beautiful native Silver Fern and hear stories how it was used to protect the women and children during times of battle.
We return to the walk after dark which offers a chance to see the glow worms up close including witnessing their silk web. You will also see our native New Zealand Silver Fern at night. All the time hearing the soothing sound of the nearby creek and waterfall in the distance.
We strongly believe that our activities are about the experience. Therefore we don't provide food or hot drinks, but our tours last on average, one hour longer than anyone else.
