Visit the Te Anau Glowworm Caves - an underground network of limestone caves lit by hundreds of glowworms. In the darkness they produce a glittering display. Carved out by the force of the river, the underground world is surprisingly beautiful with...more

We went on the 2pm tour. Jumped on the boat for the ride accross to the Glow worm caves. The skipper was pretty informitive which ill give them. We arrived to the side of the lake where the caves are and we were split into...More

Check out realjourneys they run the trips to the caves. Roads and weather in Fiordland is variable, we got caught with a large snow fall a few years ago in the area in early June, but if you can handle the cold and have flexible days, it is great.
The trips to the caves seem to run through all seasons. I am unsure of the camp sites at this time of year, but my son liked the one at Manapouri.
Hope this helps
