Horne Lake Caving Weekend
Explore beneath the surface and join us on a caving adventure at Horne Lake Provincial Park. Experience an underground slide and waterfall and hike through beautiful rainforests on Vancouver Island. Spend the weekend in the quiet town of Courtenay, BC where relaxing and unwinding come easy when you are surrounded by waterfalls both above ground and bellow.
Itinerary September 21-23rd, 2018
Arrive at the house in Courtenay, BC between 5pm and 6pm.
If flying, we recommend flying into Courtenay, BC. You can also fly into Victoria, Vancouver or Nanaimo, BC and rent a car.
Once you arrive, you will settle into your room, meet your roommates, and pin on your custom name tag.
After introductions, we will go for a walk on the beach right across the road from the house and enjoy a quiet sunset.
When we return to the house dinner will be served and an enjoyable and relaxed evening of laughter and conversation will follow.
Up early, we will have a continental style breakfast and pack lunches for the day before heading out to Horne Lake for the caving tour.
Our morning Caving expedition will be led by guides and takes us below the surface into the cool underground world of waterfalls and the natural landscapes beneath our feet. There will be some light hiking but nothing extreme.
After our caving adventure we can spend an afternoon lake side enjoying the summer weather or we can head back and explore some of the waterfall hikes around Courtenay, BC – perhaps even both.
After a full day of adventuring, we will head back to our cozy home near the beach. Dinner will be around 6:30pm. T
he starry skies are amazing away from the lights of downtown Courtenay and we will have a great view to enjoy on our last evening with all of the new lifelong friends we have made.
One last early morning you can enjoy an early morning walk on the beach before breakfast, which will be a continental style buffet once again with toast, bagels fruit and oatmeal.
Check out time is 10 am.
The rest of the day is yours to explore the other hidden treasures around Courtenay, BC with your new friends!
