Travelers to the south island of New Zealand wouldn’t miss a stop at Te Anau, a quaint and peaceful town by a lake of the same name. It is the main gateway to Fiordland National Park, just two and a half hour of scenic drive away from the famous Milford Sound. A number of New Zealand’s greatest walking trails also start in Te Anau.

Also not to be missed when you’re in Te Anau is a visit to the glowworm cave. We took a lovely cruise across the lake and were dropped off at a place called The Grotto where a short walk and boat ride took us deep into the 15,000 year old cave, lit by thousands of tiny glowworm insects. Sounds creepy but magical? Yeah.
