Te Anau Glow Worm Caves

Te Anau


Daniel, 12

My adventure begins by catching the boat across to the caves.I see the choppy waves and the silky snow on the mountains. The boat comes to a halt and listen to safety instructions for the caves. We head down the caves and all of a sudden everything goes quiet and all you can hear is the calm trickling of the running stream below us. The cave illuminates with the 1000s of gloworms. We arrived at a small wooden raft that we got in one foot at a time.The guide was pulling it by a chain. It goes quiet again and all you hear is the chain rattling as the boat turned back and we started heading back.
