Explore the Hidden Gem of Vancouver Island, now open year-round. Winner of BC’s Remarkable Experience Award and ranked #1. Explore this park in 3D – either hiking the beautiful rainforest Fossil Trail or venturing underground. Start your journey with a short discovery walk through the forest to reach the cave entrance. Here you’ll begin a fascinating subterranean experience. As you step away from the emerald forest and deeper into the cave, a new world of crystal formations, marbled surfaces and ancient fossils reveals itself. Test your personal limits using ramps, ladders and slides to navigate passages through a variety of caves. Feel the cool air. Listen to the sound of your guide’s voice, the steady drip of seeping surface water or the rumbling of an unexpected waterfall. Turn off your headlamp to heighten your senses and absorb the power of complete darkness. Spelunking feeds every appetite, from mild to wild. It’s an intense, wild and transformative adventure!
