Tune in, adventurers! Expert and beginner cavers alike can explore Little Huson Lake Cave Park in northern Vancouver Island, which has not one, not two, but 15 ancient limestone caves.

Situated in the scenic Nimpkish Valley on the Atluck Creek Canyon, the park features a number of unique geological features – including a natural land bridge and a large “cathedral” cave entrance, according to the Regional District of Mount Waddington. Here, an underground creek flows for 60 metres, leading to many of the other 15 caves through joint-controlled passages.

Visitors can also a handful of lake caves, including “River” Cave, Shelter Cave, and Bridge Cave, the latter of which leads to a collapsed rock bridge.

Ready to check it out for yourself? Follow the forest trail from the parking lot to take in the sights of the land bridge and clear green pools from a viewing platform. When making your way along the riverbank, you’ll come across all of the caves listed above.
