Te Anau Glowworm Caves

Te Anau Glowworm Caves Review

Boats and walkways take you through a maze of caves containing underground whirlpools, waterfalls, and gushing streams. Then you'll reach the inner, quieter part and on the cave walls; glowworms shine like constellations in a clear night sky. It's a surreal experience. The caves can only be reached by water. This is a lovely family trip that takes around 2 1/2 hours. Don't miss it if you're going through Te Anau; if you're short on time you can do it in the evening.
