Climbing & Caving
Rock climbing (Don Weixl photo)
Vancouver Island's numerous mountains and crags offer some great rock climbing, caving, and mountaineering opportunities.
There are plenty of opportunities for adventure on Vancouver Island, from rock climbing at Strathcona Provincial Park and Mount Arrowsmith to caving in Horne Lakes Caves Provincial Park and the Upana Caves.
Vancouver Island has thousands of caves – some of which rank among the world’s most significant and spectacular. Take a guided tour to make the most of the outdoors, whether that means climbing rock walls or descending underground to see unusual rock formations.

Strathcona Provincial Park, BC's oldest provincial park, has some of the best climbing on Vancouver Island. And with over 245,000ha/605,408ac of rugged mountain terrain, the park offers some excellent mountaineering opportunities, too.
