Climbing & Caving
Skaha Bluffs, Penticton (Don Weixl photo)
Alpine climbing in North America originated in British Columbia.
More than a century ago, a hotel built below Rogers Pass in the Selkirk Mountains opened the door to the unspoiled wilderness – and some of Europe’s best mountaineers took notice. From the Coast Mountains to the Rocky Mountains, BC is an alpine playground and a rock climbing and mountaineering paradise.
BC is also blessed with numerous caves – including thousands on Vancouver Island alone – and has become a world-renowned caving centre. Join a guided caving tour to observe brilliant crystal formations or rappel down an underground waterfall in Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park on Vancouver Island. Northern BC offers great caving at places like Fang Cave and Monkman Provincial Park.
Today, outdoor adventurers from around the world flock to BC for everything from world-class rock climbing and caving to glacier treks and mountain ascents.
