  • Start from Franz Josef township, 40 mins easy climbing, heaps of glow worms in the 200meters cave, but the water in the cave is very cold, waterproof boots are very important if you don’t want get wet...  more »
  • Short and steep path at the end until you arrive at the tunnel. Through the tunnel you are relatively fast through. You have to put on ankle-high shoes that can get wet. Barefoot rather less recommended. The view at the end is not outstanding and you can only see some fireflies. They are disturbed by noise and light, so there are no masses there. But hey, it's about the tunnel and it's something else and also free! Especially recommended on rainy days.

  • Fantastic trek well worth finishing. Take note of all the people saying to bring thongs/flip flops/jandals. Do it! The tunnel generally needs you to be ankle deep in water, and it's well worth the hike. Better, in many ways, than the paid tours of glow worm tunnels.See these creatures in the wild and up close. Bring a torch and some waterproof shoes, and enjoy!
  • It took us 30 min to get up there. There war no real car park, just park your car on the side of the road. There was very cold ankle deep water in the tunnels, especially the first few metres. It gets better the deeper you go! We could see a lot of glow worms. Give your eyes time to adapt!
