Te Anau Glow Worm Caves

Te Anau

Southland/Fiordland

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.
