In Activities, holidays

Are you looking for a relaxed vacation, or for something a little more adventurous?

While Parksville and Vancouver Island are known for being a relaxing, timeless locale, that doesn’t mean there aren’t any opportunities to get your adrenaline pumping while you visit – you could venture down into Vancouver Island’s ‘heart of darkness’ by rappelling down an underground waterfall!

This ‘extreme’ unique experience is only available between May and October, involves climbing, crawling, cable ladders, and rappelling in a dynamic environment. It is not for the faint of heart. You’ll need to check with Horne Lake Caves & Outdoor Centre in advance to book this excursion.

Even if an extreme underground rappelling excursion isn’t for you, Horne Lake Caves is worth the visit. It’s considered to be one of British Columbia’s ‘Top 10 Off-The-Beaten-Path Attractions’!
