Certified vertical cave guides begin the journey in the Siphon Room, where they drain a pool of standing water to clear the way into Riverbend Cave—a winding rock passageway that gives way to vertical drops. Using ropes and harnesses, they instruct climbers in basic rock climbing, allowing them to slowly scale down the smooth rock walls to view Achilles Pit, which houses a four storey-tall crystal formation and ancient toys carved by Santa’s elves.

Guides supply guests with all necessary spelunking equipment, though participants should bring cameras, sturdy footwear, and two layers of clothing, as guests may get cold or wet along the journey. Tour participants need no previous climbing experience.

Horne Lake Caves

A waterfall surges into a subterranean river. Towering peaks dotted with evergreen trees loom on a distant shore. A fire pit billows wood smoke into the sky. At Horne Lake, guides spend each day connecting visitors with Qualicum Beach's natural splendour. Certified cave guides also lead a series of excursions through the natural majesty of Horne Lake Caverns, where a network of rocky passageways wind around a subterranean river and gleaming crystal compositions reach up to four stories tall under soaring gallery ceilings. They also conduct nature-based leadership programs such as team building and ropes courses.

Great adventure. Very relaxing and exciting all in the same trip. Call the merchant to discuss how to apply the groupon when booking using their online reservation system. They will make it as smooth as possible.
